Think of it as abstract art for the floor. Adventurous homeowners are embracing unique and colorful area rugs, such as the contemporary wool and silk rug by ORC Rugs (pictured), which can be ordered through Toms Price Home in Wheaton (

“It’s like a Jackson Pollock painting for your floor,” says Sarah Krase, a designer at Toms Price Home. Color schemes vary from bright bursts of color to designs that incorporate more neutral shades.

“It’s one-of-a-kind and something that no one else has,” she adds. Pair a modern design with traditional decor for an eclectic vibe.

With hardwood floors retaining their popularity, area rugs are key to anchoring the furniture in a space, Krase says.
Rugs can also be layered over low-pile broadloom carpeting to give a room a more grounded look.
