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.
The Lawrence of La Brea Modern Collection offers you modern area rugs you can embrace with strong geometric patterns, light-colored hues, and vibrant bursts of color for an eye-popping visual impact.
