Traditional rugs are modern-day representations of time-honored European and Asian patterns, representing the culture and the story of history. The centuries old patterns and designs add a touch of richness and elegance to any room. They typically have complex, intricate patterns in earthy tones; floral, borders, and central medallions in shapes like diamonds, octagons, and hexagons. Often considered formal, they create a perfect fusion when used in a casual home setting. Traditional design is featured in popular rugs styles like kilims and dhurries.
