Modern Flat Weave Rug, Origin: Central Asia – This wool modern rug has a contemporary feel that will fill the space with gentle color. It is a larger piece with bold stripes that make a statement in the space. Neutral grays combined with blues are a popular color trend that allows you to add a touch of color to a neutral palette but do so in a gentle way.
The kilim has a simple design with a repeating pattern in both color and design. This gives it a soft rhythm, reminiscent of gentle waves rolling towards the shore. The colors have a beachy feel that would be the perfect touch for a coastal cottage, or a penthouse overlooking the waves.
Neutral colors are one of the most-featured trends to appear recently in interior design magazines. Only now, you do not have to stick to all greys, browns, and creams. Designers are adding a piece that has gentle colors, but that does not overwhelm the space. Blue is a popular choice for pairing with grays.
The artist softened the look of the modern flat weave rug by allowing the colors to transition gently, incorporating a bit of blue in the gray areas and a bit of the grey in the blue areas. This ties them together and softens harsh lines. The colors are not solid throughout the larger bands, including subtle shifts that catch the light and add depth.
The artist framed the rug using the grey color to help define the space. In a layered rug look, this would set the rug apart, rather than allowing the pattern to flow over the edges and onto the pattern beneath it. This framed effect also makes it perfect for defining a space within an open plan area. The rug design has both horizontal and vertical motion, even though the design concept is simple. This rug would be the perfect complement to modern furniture with minimalist legs and open spaces beneath.
