Beautiful Room Size Modernist Collection Rug, Rug Type / Country of Origin: India – Neutral colors are in and are finding themselves incorporated into both contemporary and traditional designs. Another design trend that is picking up steam is the use of texture in the room design. In the past, carpets relied on only color to add to the design, but now things have changed, allowing designers to focus on carpets in a new way.
This carpet from India has a long pile that gives it a plush, soft texture. The visual effect of the texture is enhanced by using areas of long pile separated by areas of plain weave. The hi-lo effect of the modernist collection carpet uses lines and geometric patterns to give it form and structure.
The design is created using broad horizontal lines that are distinguished by changes in the pattern. The artist used areas of diagonal lines in both directions, broad zigzags, and finer zigzags to define the different sections of the carpet. The carpet has a general feel of vertical motion.
This rug has a high level of artistry in the design, showing the range of what can be accomplished with a solid color. The grey color of the rug is a natural wool color, and the variations in the color appear as if the artist used natural undyed wool. These natural variations in the grays give it a natural look and add to the organic feel of the carpet.
This modern carpet is a gorgeous piece that could be used in a formal and informal room. The softness of the pile and color variations give it an informal feel that would be perfect for a Boho chic room design. The geometric nature of the design also allows it to be used in a more contemporary, ultramodern setting, too. A rug with this much versatility is always a good choice.
