Say “And” not “Or”

Are you torn between the elegance of tradition and the appeal of modernity? Then the transitional rug is the perfect solution.

The transitional rug draws upon the best parts of traditional designs and contemporary color schemes to create a unique and versatile work of art.

The intricate patterns seen in traditional rugs find a new, modernized home in the transitional rug. Transitional rugs transcend conventional labels by blending the ornate medallions and motifs of traditional rugs with the rejuvenated and eclectic color pallets of their contemporary cousins.

Unlike the abstracted designs of modern rugs, the transitional rug retains the elegant structure of antiquity, but with a fashionable, trendy twist. Thanks to its versatility, you will have no trouble at all incorporating a transitional rug into your home.

With a large range of colors and patterns to choose from, transitional rugs are like chameleons. Your transitional rug can easily serve as an eye catching centerpiece if you opt for a pop of color, or with a more neutral choice your rug can assimilate into your decor’s pre-established color scheme.

Whether you decorate your room around your rug, or choose your rug as a finishing touch that ties everything together, you can transform any room with the addition of a transitional rug. As a genre bending work of art, transitional rugs are destined to be a treasured and admired heirloom in your family’s home.

With so many options to choose from, the transitional rug offers you the best of both worlds. And better yet, Agora Fine Rugs is here to help you and ensure you walk away with your perfect match.

You found the perfect rug that fits your unique style. Now you need to incorporate the rug into your room to create a beautiful space. So how do you do that? You accessorize with a couple of the dominant colors in the rug.

Here are 3 ways to decorate a room around your rug:

1. Furniture

Add furniture pieces that pull in a dominant color from the palette of the rug. Choose one of the colors of the rug that you love and add an upholstered chair in the color tone. You can also bring in a chair that is wood and add a pillow that has the same color hues.

2. Throw blankets and pillows

If you don’t want to replace your sofa, you can pull in colors of the rug by adding a pop of color with a throw blanket or accent pillows. This works best with a neutral sofa, so it doesn’t fight with the additional color.

3. Artwork

Adding a piece of artwork is a great way to pull the rug colors into the room. If you have a modern rug that has bold colors, adding a piece of modern art is a great way to compliment the rug. If your rug is more traditional, you can always decorate a wall with unique plates in various colors that are present in your rug.

A rug with a pop of color is a great way to anchor the room and center the area you are trying to highlight. Whatever style of rug you choose, there are easy ways to incorporate it into your space by adding accessories. Don’t be afraid to add color and texture to your room. The rug can still be the star of the show as long as you balance the amount of color you add.

Agora Fine Rugs offers you the ability to create a custom design using thousands of color options. From a small entry rug to a grand rectangular design that becomes a statement piece. Every rug is hand-knotted using only the finest organic materials.

Upgrade Your Space With A Modern Area Rug.

The Modern Rug

The modern or contemporary area rug can transform or update any space. Modern rugs vary greatly in colors and designs. The rugs can be made with monochromatic subtle hues or bold, bright colors. The designs are endless, with options that are simple to more complex with geometric patterns.

Start With A Color Scheme

If you are looking to update your living space with a modern rug, start with the color. If your room is decorated using warm colors in the beige family, a rug with a pop of color is a great way to anchor the room and center the area you are trying to highlight. For example, a seating area that is mostly monochromatic and neutral is a great fit for a rug that contains a burst of color. This type of rug will brighten the space and draw the eye in.


Don’t be afraid to add color or bold patterns to your space. Feel free to add accent pieces that will compliment your new rug centerpiece. Adding throw pillows to a tired sofa is a great way to update the sofa and connect the seating area to the rug. When shopping for a rug, make sure you select a rug that is hand knotted. The hand knotted rug is made using ancient weaving practices that ensure its longevity and quality. These rugs will last for generations, becoming treasured family heirlooms.

Even a tired hallway or kitchen area can feel totally transformed with a modern rug. The sky is the limit with custom sizing and design options. For example, when deciding on a size for a living room area you can choose to add a rug that runs the length of the sofa and place the cocktail table in the center of the rug. You can also choose a larger sized rug that allows for all of the furniture pieces to float within the rug boundaries.

Agora Fine Rugs offers the ability to create a custom design using thousands of color options. From a round, small entry rug to a grand rectangular design that becomes a statement piece. Every rug is hand knotted using only the finest organic materials.
