Modern Flat Weave Rug, Origin: Central Asia – Bold stripes are a classic combination that seems to be a perennial favorite for creating a fresh and dramatic look in the room. Within this simple pattern are endless design possibilities to create a distinctive feeling within the room. Blues and neutrals are a color combination that is being featured in design magazines and on lifestyle blogs this year, making this rug perfectly on point with today’s trends.
The colors of the modern flat woven rug blend perfectly with a room of neutral grays, black and white, and deep, watery blues. The artist contrasted lighter pearl grays with deep, saturated colors, using a thin band of medium grays to make the transition gentler on the eyes. The colors are on the cool end of the spectrum, which tends to create a space that is more calming and serene than warm colors. The artist used fine details on the edges to define the space and the width of the kilim.
The bold stripes create horizontal motion, which, combined with the width of the stripes, gives the rug a feeling that widens the space. However, the use of defined edges helps to keep the dimensions of the rug in balance.
Even though this piece uses broad bands and colors to create drama within the space, the metered spacing of stripes and consistent pattern give it a soft and soothing feel. Within each band, the artist allowed the colors to drift between different shades, which gives the piece a natural flow and helps to soften the lines.
If you are a person who likes to keep things on the minimalist side, but you still want a piece that will brighten the space, this modern rug is versatile enough to add a bit of flair to the design without overpowering it. This rug would allow you to use more vibrant accessories within the space to create areas of focal point and highlight.
