Contemporary rugs by benuta are very functional and introduce delicate patterns and designs to your home thanks to their flat pile. Therefore, they are also referred to as short pile rugs or low pile rugs. Unlike shaggy rugs, on which filigree patterns are difficult to depict due to their uneven pile structure, contemporary rugs hardly set any limits. They can therefore be used in many different ways: because of their short pile, they are well suited as dining rooms or living room rugs, as pieces of furniture can easily be placed on them. A contemporary rug is a popular home accessory which is frequently designed in an elegant style and decorated with trendy designs, adding the finishing touches to a room and highlighting its individual style. Stripe and check designs are still among the evergreens, just like abstract geometric designs which perfectly match modern and retro-style interior and furnishings. These interior styles are also perfectly complemented by contemporary rugs decorated with trendy chevron patterns. Apart from rug designs, the distinctive zigzag lines also cover a range of other items including furnishings, clothes, wallpapers and accessories. Vintage rugs are also quite popular as their softly worn out look and the traditonal ornamental designs create the look of an ancient heirloom. They also nicely blend with a number of interior design styles, such as the casual bohemian style or the romantic shabby chic style, the latter of which mainly comprises delicate floral designs and classic printed patterns next to vintage elements in bright shades. Made from natural fibres, a sisal rug is a real classic and all-rounder among contemporary rugs.
Flat woven rugs
A rug referred to as a flat woven rug only consists of a woven fabric and does not comprise an additional pile. Thus, these models have a very sturdy and robust finish. Often, flat woven rugs are made from synthetic fibres and create a beautiful rustic effect with their sisal-like look. Thanks to this great durability and craftsmanship, flat weave rugs are the perfect outdoor rugs suitable for your garden, patio and terrace. The designs and colours are usually subtle due to the lacking pile – but at benuta, you will nonetheless find trendy flat weave designs, including star rugs or ones with soft borders.
