Beautiful Collection of Antique and Vintage Round Rugs
Round Rugs – Our vintage, circular rugs are skillfully crafted works of art. These unique rugs were created by talented artists throughout the twentieth century, and each round rug has a classic style that represents the country and decade in which it was made. Whether you are looking for a small carpet or a large one, there is bound to be a rug in our collection that appeals to you. All of our antique, limited edition rugs have something special to offer.
Some of these round rugs feature an intricate network of lines and colors, while others confidently represent the more simplistic designs of the Art Deco movement.
Rounder area rugs, much like angular ones, are designed to draw attention to a specific point on the ground. This point is usually arranged as a part of a whole, in turn leading the viewer’s eye to other sections that define the furnishings in the area. However, unlike traditional angular rugs, round rugs are designed to offset the linear nature of the surrounding room. With the presence of the floors, walls and doorways, there are already many angular lines defining the rigidity in the environment. With a round area rug, decorators can break up the traditional monotony through the use of softened spaces and more whimsical flows that lead the eyes in a less grounded manner.
No matter the colors or patterns chosen for the rugs, their round shape makes them ideal because the form echoes similar elements in the room. Items such as lighting fixtures, round circular shapes and appliances synergize with rounder rugs in a subtle yet elegant way, especially in rooms such as kitchens and dens where such fixtures and circular arrangements are more prevalent. The casual appeal of the rugs allows them to stand out without looking overdone, especially if they are set as the only rug in the area.
Rounder rugs can also stand out as a perfect visual solution to opening up smaller rooms and allowing them to appear larger and more defined. This presence is ideal at the front of the room, where visitors can see the rug first and the rest of the furnishings next. Use these round rugs to create richer feelings of warmth, as the round shape implies softness and intimacy, especially when paired with colors such as orange, red and yellow. They can be applied by using many of the same techniques as with a standard rectangular rug.
Furnishings can be arranged around the rug itself, or the rug can be used to house several furnishings within its shape. No matter the arrangement, decorators are encouraged to be creative and apply their own personal preferences to the rugs to get the best visual effects.
