The carpet, woven in India, uses pearl to slate grays to set the tone of the rug. This is lightened by layering in ivories and lighter tones. The artist used reds and rusts to create a piece that resembles aged metal, or perhaps a plaster wall has watched the decades pass. The reds and browns are on the warm end of the spectrum and will give the room a comfortable, cozy feel.
This carpet also adds texture to the space and would be the perfect piece for a layered look. It calls for being paired with rich, warm browns, or perhaps a pop of navy blue. This is a rug that inspires the inner artist and has an earthy character.
The artist used color and texture to add dimension to the design. The weaving technique uses traditional hand-knotted pile techniques combined with alternating areas of plain weave to create depth. This also enhances the visual impact of the colors, too.
This modern rug evokes an organic, natural feel in its colors and abstract design. The artist concentrated the reds on one end of the carpet, allowing them to evolve along the length of the carpet. This creates the feeling of an ombre effect and creates the visual appearance of weight on one end of the design. This rug lends itself to many design possibilities and will be the perfect feature piece in the room.
