With straightforward silhouettes, textural fabrics, and endless opportunities to evolve, contemporary interior design encapsulates the world's most comfortable and popular trends. The contemporary style uses simplicity as an opportunity for play, as it embraces what feels right in that moment, and that versatility and spontaneity are where the fun comes in. A prime example of this would be to choose a muted rug for your living room as this enables you to play around and express your creativity with other, more decorative elements.

Choosing the right rug for your living room is therefore an important decision to make, as it can vastly change the aesthetics and feel of the room. It can also be the feature that ties the entire room and its other decorative elements together, to create a sense of unity and completeness.

1. Alex Natural Vinyl Rug

Adding this rug to your contemporary-styled living room would be a perfect choice, as it's non-boastful and will provide your room with an architecturally striking element.

7. Zoya Natural Vinyl Rug

The contemporary style embraces minimalistic elements, highlighting beiges as one of its core colors. It's no wonder this Zoya Natural rug fits perfectly into that vision. Its earthy feel with free-flowing linework offers the perfect amount of detail, without making the room feel "cluttered".

While a geometric or neutral-styled rug can be the perfect addition to your contemporary-styled living room, there are other, alternative décor options to enhance that aesthetic. A common option is to utilize furniture in neutral tones and decorate them with vibrantly colored pillows to add a splash of color. Additionally, hang pictures or sculptures close together on walls so that they create the feeling of one large piece. Always remember, in contemporary interiors, open space is often just as important as the pieces you put in the space.
