All About Geometric Rugs
In the 16th century, Anatolia was known for creating carpets with stylized animal and geometric designs. Through new cultural contacts across the continent, rugs designed around a central medallion came into vogue and the style of these Ottoman court rugs spread to other weaving centers. However they never fully overtook the regional carpet traditions, and since that very time Caucasian and Armenian carpets have retained their customary geometric patterns and kilims (or flat-weaves) remain popular.
Rugs with a geometric pattern are most commonly hand-tufted from wool, viscose, or polyester. There are many handwoven options that tend to be made of synthetics, as well as flat-woven choices that can be made from any singular or combination of the above materials. The pile height of our geometric rugs generally runs between 1/4-inch and under up to 1-inch.

The majority of our selection of geometric rugs lie within the black, grey, blue, and brown range with some other hues available as well. Our geometric rug shapes are mainly rectangular and round but we have other shapes like square, octagon, and oval available as well.
Caring For and Cleaning Your Geometric Rug
Vacuum your area rugs just as often as you vacuum wall-to-wall carpet to eliminate excess dirt.
If you have a fringed rug be careful not to vacuum the area, as this could be damaging.
If your vacuum has a rug setting (which stops the rollers from spinning and just uses suction) use this option.
Brush up any loose hair on the bathroom rug or pet hair on area rugs before vacuuming by going in the same direction as the nap.
Rotate your area rugs a couple of times a year to avoid wear and fading from traffic and sunlight.
Give smaller rugs a good shake outside to remove dirt and grime.
