BASIC RUG STYLES: There are three basic styles rugs: Traditional, Transitional, and Contemporary. And there are a multitude of designs and color combinations available in each of these categories.  Following is a brief description of the basic styles:  

TRADITIONAL

Poeme PM50 by Jaipur

The classic “Oriental” carpet,   traditional style rugs  are inspired by the ornate and intricate Persian and Indo-Persian patterns and rich colors that were the wellspring ofIndia’s rug-weaving industry.

TRANSITIONAL

Poeme PM74 by Jaipur

Transitional style rugs  are adaptations of the classic Persian, Indo-Persian, and other traditional Oriental rug patterns. They can be characterized by more muted and subtle color palettes, more open designs, and intricate patterns most often inspired by nature. More recently, several transitional collections are in brighter colors and the patterns have a modern flair while still hearkening to the traditional roots. 

 CONTEMPORARY / MODERN

Guide

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
