Modern Flat Weave Rug, Origin: Central Asia – This gorgeous and captivating modern flat weave is a study in modern contrasts. It has elements that give it a traditional feel, but it is distinctively contemporary and makes the perfect piece for modern interiors. It combines angular, geometric elements with natural curves and flowing figures.
The beautiful flowing shapes in the field of the rug look like natural, rippling waters. The addition of deeper blues and darker tones towards the top of the rug makes it appear as if the piece progresses from calm and gentle waters to choppier ones near the top. The variations in the density of the shapes also enhance the reflection of the natural world in the piece, making it reminiscent of water.
The organic flowing center of the kilim is framed by uniform, geometric shapes. This serves as a frame for the center design and helps delineate the space of the rug. The neutral colors of the border allow it to fit into a neutral room with more subdued tones. In an all-neutral room, the soft colors of this rug will add just enough to break it up but still add a touch of color. You could easily pull inspiration from the colors of the rug for the furniture and other accessories throughout the room.
This rug has a calm and balanced feel. It has a grounded mixture of neutrals, pastels, and medium tones. The colors have a tendency towards the cool end of the spectrum. Even the pinks have a mauve tone to them. This will create a light and airy feeling in the room.
The framing of the modern rug gives it a more formal character, but the undulating shapes in the center allow it to retain a natural quality. This rug would be the perfect complement to natural wood accessories and plants. It will also soften a room that includes bold, linear geometrics and furniture with open spaces. This beautiful piece makes a statement in many different interior styles.
