Transitional area rugs combine traditional and contemporary styles to create distinct trendy looks accompanied by a traditional twist. Floral patterns, simple borders, distressed oriental motifs, large-scale vines and scrollwork are all common features associated with this style of rug. Transitional rugs can bring a modern look to highly traditional furniture décor or add unique style to a contemporary space.  Many times another advantage of this style of rug is the ability to provide a smoother transition from one style of rug to another when rooms and areas are partially or even completely open to each other.
