Protect your hardwood floors with a contemporary rug

A wooden floor is perfect for any contemporary living space; natural and elegant, a wooden floor will never go out of style. A wooden floor looks fabulous in your hallway, dining room and living room but they are also easy to maintain and clean, especially if you have small children with sticky fingers! However, in order to protect your floor from furniture scratches or UV rays which will change the colour of your floor, we suggest covering it with a contemporary rug

If you are looking to make a statement, look no further than a contemporary red rug. A rug in a bold red, like our Louis De Poortere Vintage Patchwork Rug in Red is perfect for making an impact, especially if paired with a simple white or neutral colour scheme. Place your red rug in a white and grey colour scheme with lots of stunning silver accessories for a contemporary, sophisticated finish. 

If your contemporary living room has lots of pattern opt for a single bold colour. Alternatively, if the room has a striking colour scheme, use your rug to add pattern by picking out one or two key accent shades. Something like our Louis De Poortere Vintage Patchwork Rug in Black and White is perfect for an elegant living space, no matter your colour scheme.

Something simple like the Louis De Poortere Mad Men Rug in Bronx Azurite is also perfect if you are looking to enhance an accent colour. With a mostly white and grey colour, the pop of blue adds a little colour without looking over the top and therefore is perfect for any living room.
