Modern Flat Weave Rug, Origin: Central Asia – The gorgeous colors and classic pattern of this kilim have a clean and contemporary look. Neutral grays and blues are a popular combination that is gracing the pages of interior design magazines and popular websites. Neutral colors have been around for a while, and designers continue to find new ways to use them in a room to create a serene and calming feel. They are now using the addition of other colors to the palette to create interest and to break it up a bit.
The shifting grays and blues of this modern flat weave carpet feel fresh and composed. The deeper charcoals and graphites create a bold contrast that gives the piece a contemporary look and is a dramatic contrast to the delicate blues. Broad stripes tend to add width to the space, but the artist used lighter pearl grays to create a border in this rug. This has the effect of confining the stripes, rather than allowing them to drift off of the edges. As a result, the vertical motion of the modern rug is emphasized more so than the horizontal motion.
The gentle transitions of the colors of the rug give this piece a natural look and feel. Interior designers are finding new ways to bring a feeling of the natural world into urban spaces. This piece uses natural colors and a technique that looks like soft watercolor strokes to create an organic feeling. The result is a gorgeous and versatile piece that will be at home in any space.
If your style is minimalist or Swedish modern, this is the perfect piece to add a bit of color to the room, but in a way that is subtle and understated. In a Boho chic room, this carpet adds color and contrasting pattern to the space. It is an inspirational piece that is created specifically for today’s contemporary designs.
