Ken S. Our whole experience with Rugknots was excellent. The rug is perfect as described and photographed. George was was a huge help before we purchased. They seem to genuinely care about you as the customer at Rugknots. We'll buy there again!
Elaine B. Ordered a second rug after I got the first one as I liked it so much. The price is great, the rug is a good quality rug that looks like it cost a lot more. Good customer service also from the owners.

Why Transitional Rugs Are A Great Choice

What exactly is a “transitional rug”? A transitional rug lies somewhere between classic and contemporary in style. A classic or traditional rug often has an intricate design. There are frequently floral and foliage patterns, and this type of Oriental rug usually has a well-defined border with the pattern moving inwards towards a motif in the center. These designs have been created for generations and generations, and the color palette has been passed down too: deep and rich, but not too vivid.

A contemporary rug takes a different approach. Designs are bold rather than intricate, and often feature geometric patterns. Colors can be vibrant, from hot pinks to acid yellows, and all manner of bright primaries or contrasting shades. Alternatively, there’s also a muted, natural-looking contemporary palette which is very popular in today’s homes. Although it seems a modern rug is characterized by its use of color, it typically has far fewer hues than its traditional counterpart.

The transitional rug combines these two together. Traditional designs are given a contemporary twist, often reversing what’s expected. To explain this a bit further, a geometric design with traditional colors such as warm reds and dark blues has a transitional edge. A classic repeated pattern is given a modern color palette of grays and blues.

Our Transitional Collection rugs instantly feel at home in their surroundings. Some have a naturally aged appearance, which makes it look like they’ve matured with your room. You get this lovely soft appearance without the wear that a genuinely vintage rug has. The combination of the old and new means that these rugs will suit any décor, and are the perfect compromise if you’re not sure which direction to head in.

More About The Transitional Collection

So, you’ve thought about transitional rugs, and think this could be the right solution for your home. What’s available in the Transitional Collection?

It’s actually made up from other, smaller collections. The Dream Collection brings together a range of transitional styles, all sharing warm beige and brown tones. Look out for retro modernist designs in lovely contemporary palettes. The Dream Collection rugs were made in Turkey. Their pile is 100% polypropylene, which has the advantage of being easy to maintain. The Dream rugs were made by machine, which enables us to keep the costs down.

We also have the lovely Lace Collection. This range has gorgeous muted blues and grays, which look absolutely wonderful on tiled or slate flooring, or on pale floorboards for a coastal chic look. The subtle and delicate designs explain why the collection is named Lace. These rugs were hand woven in India, and are made from 80% wool.

The Transitional Collection rugs begin with the neat little 2’x 3’size, and go right up to the large 8’ x 10’ editions, perfect for a well-proportioned living room or bedroom. The 2’ x 8’ runner-style rug adds interest to a hallway or passageway. The other two sizes (3’ x 5’ and 5’ x 8’) are extremely adaptable, and can be found next to beds, in front of the hearth, or under smaller tables. There’ll always be a Transitional rug to fit the space.
