Modern Flat Weave Rug, Origin: Central Asia – Bold stripes and geometric patterns are among some of the biggest interior design trends this year. Neutral grays are being used to create a space that is tranquil and serene. This modern handwoven flat weave wool rug is perfect for adding pattern and a bit of drama to a neutral room.
This modern flat weave rug is contemporary and has a simple pattern, but it adds bold details that give it interest and allow it to add contrast to other elements of the room. Designers are using neutrals in a fresh, new way that allows them to stand out, rather than hiding in the background. This rug would be the perfect addition to a neutral room that needs a feature element but without adding to the color palette.
Subtle shifts in the gray stripes of this modern rug pick up the lighting in the room, adding depth and texture to the design. The artist allowed these subtle changes to occur naturally, reflecting elements of the natural world. The natural color transitions have an organic feel. The subtle border pattern adds contrast in scale and helps to define the edges of the rug. This seems to stop the motion of the eye, rather than allow it to drift off of the edges of the rug.
The broad horizontal stripes create motion that directs the eye across the width of the rug and adds a rhythmic cadence to the piece. In a narrow space, this kilim would add width and make the area appear more spacious. In a wider space, it will draw the eye in and make it look better proportioned.
This rug holds many design possibilities with its contemporary feel and classic pattern. It could easily be used to help define a space for conversation or create a peaceful and calm atmosphere in a bedroom. It has a minimalist, modern feel that would go well in a room with steel and glass. It could also add texture and contrasting patterns to a Boho chic layered carpet look. The possibilities for this classic, neutral stripe are endless.
