Traditional Arga Rugs for a Modern Home

Agra rugs are a great way to incorporate culture and color into your home. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, adding a touch of grandeur to any room they are placed in.


Nothing says grandeur better than an elegant rug rich with color and tradition. Agra rugs stem from ancient times; the art of manufacturing these rugs has survived many political and geographic obstacles. Originally, these rugs were transported within the Indus region by camels; however, they have become very popular in the West in recent years.

Agra rugs are now sold throughout the world, and still display their intricate vine or geometric designs with traditional cream backgrounds from the Mongol era. Compared to Agra and Persian rugs of ancient times, today’s rugs are better suited for western homes; cotton is sometimes used as a substitute for wool and a greater variety of sizes are available. Blue, green, red and a pale cream are the traditional colors for these rugs, but browns and purples have also been incorporated to suite more modern tastes.

Different sizes and shapes can be purchased at many outlets carrying imported rugs from the East. With so much variety, consumers have a wide array of choices, and can find an area rug for almost any room or passageway in the house. Some popular shapes include:

Long and narrow in shape, runners are designed for passageways. They come in a variety of lengths, and are a great way to enhance a hallway. These elegant strips leave you wondering what wonders lie in the connecting room.

Continuous Runner
Continuous runners are slightly more modern; they have a broken border across the top and bottom, creating a flowing effect between passages and the rooms to which they lead. They are also a little more versatile as they can be added to if a hallway is exceptionally long.

Round rugs are perfect for dining or living rooms; they are a beautiful complement to round tables or rounded furniture. Round rugs provide the room with a unique shape and feel.

Rectangular carpets are the pièce de résistance; they come in the largest sizes and are often the most elaborate. Large rectangular rugs are meant to be placed in the center of a room; these rugs are considered an art form and should be given the appropriate space, allowing the intricate patterns to be aptly displayed.

If you are looking to add some style and culture into your home, Agra rugs are a great way to incorporate color and tie a room together. Whether you use runners, round, or rectangular shaped rugs, these traditional works of art will add elegance and grandeur to any room.
