Geometric prints are one of those fantastic classic décor staples that can fit anywhere with grace and ease. From contemporary circles to traditional trellises, and everywhere in between, the beauty of geometry is that it’s both vivid and subtle – vivid because of its inherent non-solid pattern, and subtle because of its repetition of classic shapes and patterns.
Geometric prints are everywhere in home décor. Today, we’re looking specifically at area rugs, and how incorporating a geometrically patterned area rug can provide the perfect foundation for any space’s ultimate style.
Liven up a modern white-with-black space with a bold black-and-white geometric rug. This keeps the energy levels up in the space without compromising color choices.
One of the perks of geometric rugs is their capacity to camouflage…which is a singing benefit indeed for stylish dining room fodder.
Smaller scaled squares in a neutral rug mimic the tile floor pattern in this contemporary space, while warming up the entire room.
In a pale-neutral setting, a boldly colored rug with large-scale geometric design packs a vivacious punch.
Design magic happens when the rug’s geometry is reflected throughout the room, like on the gilded legs of this fantastically unique coffee table.
Modern-eclectic décor benefits from the structure of a geometric print as well as the energy found in such a pattern.
When the rug isn’t meant to take center stage, keep the pattern to a smaller scale – this makes even a large geometric rug appear almost as neutral as a solid.

Even in a relaxed, rustic space where monotone natural palettes reign supreme, the simplicity of a modern geometric area rug infuses delightfully unexpected elements color and pattern.
Don’t forget about the hallways! Connecting one space to another, a vibrant geometric print rug encourages the energy to flow from room to room.

A classic herringbone-patterned rug is right at home on honey wood floors and with mid-century modern furniture…like the ultra-long moss green retro-vibe sofa. The rug is in keeping with the space’s great style-driven color palette.
The more distinct the contrast is between the rug’s colors, the greater the geometric pattern’s impact on the space overall. This bedroom’s black and white rug is a perfect example.
Dark grey walls and a coordinated geometric rug (not to mention a great white sofa) add soothing sophistication to a nursery space.

What do you think? Do you have geometric area rugs in your space? Do they work for you? Or are you a fan of something less…geometric altogether?
