Modern art rugs - The term "modern art" is often thought of as being art which was created within a certain time period roughly from the 1860's to the 1970's. That said, in the day to day, the term itself actually refers more to art that was created with a certain aesthetic in mind, rather than the specific window of time. Modern art is actually more accurately defined as art that defies the more traditional materials and means of production.

In its essence, modern art is highly creative or experimental in nature and is possibly best defined as artists and artworks that represent "outside the box" or original thinking. While many works of art that were created prior to the 1970's actually fit more readily with the true nature of modern art, this means that some works of art produced after the 1970's may be narrowly defined as "modern art" as well. This is true even though the artworks themselves may not actually fit the official definition of "modern art".

While examples of modern art certainly include traditional art pieces like vases, sculptures, pottery and paintings, they also include items made for daily use such as rugs, pillows and even furniture. Part of what makes "modern art" modern art, is the idea of taking art off the wall or out of a display case and making it accessible and even usable on a daily basis.

In addition to having existing works of modern art converted into rugs or carpets, the spirit of modern art can also be conveyed by having custom rugs designed to reflect your own unique aesthetic. This can include renderings of characters or illustrations from your favorite books or movies, non-traditional or unique patterns and shapes or even scenes from nature. Even the shape of the carpet itself can be unique, rather than a standard round, square or rectangle.
