Oriental rugs in modern decor are something I’ve had my eye on lately. Oriental, or any hand-knotted antique rugs in that case have a way of beautifully grounding and warming up a space, which is why I think they work in modern decor so well, and the contrast makes a great impact.
I’m also listening to an audiobook right now, Blood of Flowers by Anita Amirrezvani, and the descriptions of the rugs inspired me to find some examples to share with you guys.
Day to day, this office space would be too dark for me, but otherwise I love the rustic table and the ornate oriental rug.
The pops of pink in this oriental accent rug look gorgeous with the blue walls.
The patina and wear of an antique rug makes it even more beautiful.
I’m sure I’ve posted this image before but I just had to share it again, it’s so beautiful. I don’t know if I could live with glossy black shiplap, but the effect is dramatic!

I also really like geometric oriental rugs. If you are into a more casual or rustic look they are a good choice.
