The modern style is the design and décor with an emphasis on simplicity and function and focuses on the design elements from 1900 to 1950; mid-century modern (typically 1950s and 60s) is very similar to the modern look with splashes of bright color added.
Modern-styled areas favor a simple, uncluttered space with smooth, clean lines and artistic flair. You have a comfortable and calming feeling in a room that is very inviting.
The décor pieces are functional, lack of fussiness, with a color palette of warm, natural tones. Natural materials, exposed wood beams, and natural fibers, along with reflective surfaces such as glass, steel, or chrome, often define the modern style.

Hand loomed area rugs are made on a loom with anywhere from one or more people depending on the size of the rug. As opposed to a hand knotted rug with could take anywhere from six to twelve months to finish, a hand loomed rug will only take one to three days to finish, making them a great option at a more attractive price point.
There are several ways to spot the differences between a hand loomed area rug versus the other types of rugs they try to emulate. With today’s new manufacturing techniques, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to discern the differences between the method the area rug was made. Our staff here at Lawrence of La Brea would be more than happy to assist you with any questions you may have and how to become an expert at spotting the differences!
