This gorgeous earthy brown modern rug captures the feel of the mid 20th century but in a way that is perfect for contemporary interiors.
The design philosophy of the mid 20th century is all about the intersection between man and the natural world. Artists often included elements that represented the sharp angles and lines created by man set against organic elements such as round shapes or animal prints as in this piece.

You could easily carry this layered rug theme throughout the space by adding different colors and textures in the window treatments, throw pillows, and accents.
