Mid Century Modern Area Rugs – A wooden floor is an investment that deserves an attractive, well-made area rug. Not only should the carpet give you the comfort you want, but it should also complement the look of the wood without damaging it.
Natural Fiber Rugs
Mid Century Modern Area Rugs made from plant fibers such as coconut, jute, seaweed and sisal are often called natural fiber rugs. They are tightly planar to form a rug. Most are reversible, although coconut and seaweed rugs usually have latex back. Synthetic latex, which may adhere to or otherwise damage a wooden floor, should not be placed directly on it.
Natural latex rubber can be used, either as a substrate like a Mid Century Modern Area Rugs pad under a natural fiber mat. Because these rugs offer no cushion under the feet, thick felt cushions or natural rubber cushions are advisable for comfort. It will also prevent slipping and dirt or sand sediment through carpet that can scratch the wood.
A wool or wool-mixing area mat is a common choice for a wooden floor. Wool is comfortable, durable and easy to clean. Whether you choose a flat fabric or a stuffed wool mat, on the back of the carpet itself can scratch the floor. A matte pad of felt or natural rubber will prevent this, while extending the life of the carpet by minimizing wear from the back.
