Sophisticated African Retro Rug Type / Country of Origin: India, Circa Date: Modern / New – Modern design trends favor neutrals to create a soft and cozy space. The warm, earthy browns of this African Retro rug bring a natural feel to the space. The geometric pattern is modern and has a retro feel, but it was inspired by ancient traditions. Mid century designers often borrowed designs from tribal cultures to create fascinating pieces like this one.
The design for this carpet is taken from the traditional weaving designs on African Kuba cloth. The women weavers of the Democratic Republic of Congo wove these patters for special occasions and to reflect their ancient tribal stories and traditions. Mid century designers loved them for their geometric design and organic feel. Now, they are finding their way into contemporary designs, including a more updated version of retro designs.
Rooms that layer different hues of brown, rust, and other neutrals are being used to create spaces that are cozy and inviting. This would be the perfect piece for a design such as this. It would also complement modern, streamlined furniture with its geometric form and softer, more natural lines. This rug will add warmth to the color and create a cozy feel.
The modern rug is made from wool and viscose, which creates a soft and durable carpet. Viscose is a natural fiber made from recycled materials to resemble plant-based fibers. It can often imitate cotton, silk, or linen. This carpet has a dimensional quality that is a result of varied pile types and heights.
The beautiful colors are rich and have an earthy quality that will work well in a room with lots of plants and natural materials. This is the perfect carpet for anchoring a room design in several upcoming style trends. It is a gorgeous piece and is the foundation of many inspirational room ideas.
