Choose a contemporary interior and break away from the traditionally rectangular shape for your rug. Round or oval rugs soften a room and can be used to counterbalance the straight lines of the furniture. They don’t need to be lined up with a wall or sofa, they can be laid carelessly and don't seem to need anything else. Some designers like to shake things up with playful rugs made in unusual, like the cross rug by Patricia Urquiola for Gan Rugs for example. This selection includes rugs in unusual shapes that one-off characters will love.
