In addition to adding warmth and texture to a room, abstract rugs can also bring a pop of colour into an otherwise neutral space, or they can help create a sense of cohesion in a room by tying in the different colours used in the room's furniture, paint and decor. Abstract rugs can recede into the background or stand out as a focal point with stark, geometric patterns. West Elm Canada's collection of abstract rugs includes everything from traditional Persian-style rugs to bold, modern art-style designs. You'll also find abstract patterned rugs in every size and shape, including narrow hallway runners and expansive area rugs.
When shopping for an abstract rug, you'll need to take several factors into consideration when trying to narrow down your options. The first is of course the size and shape of the rug you need. Fortunately, most of the abstract rugs available at West Elm Canada are available in multiple sizes. You'll also want to consider the level of durability you need. A rug placed in a playroom or other high-traffic area, for example, will need to be easily cleaned and capable of standing up to a certain amount of abuse without showing wear. Here are just a few of the abstract rug options available at West Elm Canada:
Rani Rug - Available in seven sizes, this vintage-look rug is handcrafted from durable wool and silky viscose. This blend of materials results in a durable rug that feels soft underfoot. The Rani features a subtle, Persian-inspired design that adds quiet character to any space.
Margo Selby Squares Rug - This striking rug features a reversible flatweave construction for maximum versatility. Designed by renowned textile designer Margo Selby exclusively for West Elm Canada, this handcrafted rug is made of 100% cotton.
Distressed Foliage Rug - With a tonal pattern of cascading vines, this rug adds softness and subtle colour to your space. Creative knotting and colouration give this hand-loomed rug a distressed, vintage look. The rug is available in four muted shades.
Desert Stream Indoor/Outdoor Rug - This sustainably sourced rug is handmade from recycled plastic bottles by artisans in India. The reversible flatweave rug features a Southwestern pattern in natural earthy tones. The rug's weather-resistant polyester yarns make it durable, easy to clean and safe for outdoor use.
Brushed Metallic Rug - The abstract pattern on this rug is created by textural tufting and the interesting contrast between matte and shiny fibres in the wool and viscose blend. The rug's soft bronze hue and rich texture will add warmth to any room.
