Beautiful Room Size Modernist Collection Rug, Rug Type / Country of Origin: India – Nothing brightens the room like a solid white rug. This modern carpet is the perfect addition to any decor. The contemporary design uses areas of high and low weaving to create a modern abstract design using lines, zigzags, and the design density.
The carpet adds interest and a contemporary feel to the room with bold stripes on the top and zigzags on the bottom. The artist created the field of the rug using an abstract zigzag pattern, rather than a uniform one. This creates a visual effect that is reminiscent of shifting white sands.
The carpet is directional, with an overall vertical alignment. However, the artist created interest with a change in direction midway through the carpet, choosing to use horizontal solid lines at the top of the rug. Even though the rug is solid white, this change in direction and pattern creates a dramatic effect.
The high and low areas of the pile are created by alternating pile knots with areas of plain weave. The artist of this piece created a high level of detail. Each of the bold stripes at the top contains smaller details that give it additional depth and texture.
The artist not only used a change in direction and pattern; the density of the pattern is used to distinguish the three major areas of the design form. This carpet is an excellent way to add bold stripes and geometric patterns to the design without adding color.
Geometrics and stripes are a design trend that has been around for quite some time and has become a decorating staple. Many of them contain a neutral color and a bold, bright color, but these colors may not be the perfect addition to every contemporary room.
This Modernist Collection carpet is the perfect compromise between the ability to add geometrics without the need for colors that do not suit the rest of the design. It would be the perfect addition to a black and white room, where it will add texture and interest.
