Modernism came about in the late nineteenth to early twentieth century and led the way to the introduction of modern rug designs to the market. Modern rug designs include minimalistic, angular, and geometric patterns that utilize a range of solid colors and can include different textures to enhance the outline and make it stand out. Most modern rugs do not include floral designs. Modern rugs are often comprised of a blend of wool and silk. New Zealand wool is frequently used to create these rugs because it is of the highest quality in the world. Today due to high cost of silk, most modern rugs are made in India with synthetic silk and cotton.
