Beautiful Wool And Silk Trendsetting Abstract Contemporary Rug, Rug Type / Country of Origin: India, Circa Date: Modern / New – The irresistible carpet creates drama with stormy grays and vibrant blue accents peeking through. This abstract contemporary carpet sets a tone that is modern, yet reminiscent of the works of mid-century modern abstract painters. It is an excellent example of Abstract Expressionism, which focuses on capturing the feeling of the piece, rather than create a realistic representation of the world. This carpet has emotion and movement similar to a fine oil painting.
Contemporary interior design uses neutrals that are punctuated by colorful accessories placed throughout the room to catch the eye. This modern carpet could easily be the inspiration for a neutral gray and blue room to create a clean, modern look. The artist used ranges of grays from charcoal to light gray, whites, and blues. The neutral tones are on the darker side, but blue lightens the feeling of the carpet, creating a peaceful, calming effect.
The carpet is made from durable Ghazni wool and lustrous silk. Silk has a luminous property that catches the light differently throughout the day to create a piece that changes slightly, depending on how the light catches it. This rug creates interest through the use of color and the way the artist played with light within the piece. It also takes advantage of three-dimensional space using textures. Its texture is a result of combining traditional pile weaving with plain weaving techniques. The artist used this technique to highlight the colored silk areas to make them stand out even more.
The result is a piece that uses traditional carpet weaving techniques to create a piece that appeals to modern tastes and design trends. This piece is destined to become a classic example of abstract art using carpet as a medium. It is a timeless design that is reminiscent of the mid-century abstract art of the 20th century. Yet, it takes the design concepts of that era and expands them by extending them beyond a flat canvas. This carpet has a soft, and inviting texture that makes it the perfect piece for your contemporary room design inspiration.
