Beautiful Room Size Modernist Collection Rug, Rug Type / Country of Origin: India – New color combinations, geometrics, and layers and are all leading modern design trends. This carpet combines these elements in a way that is fresh and creative. Gray is a color that is making its way into the design world, and now, artists are using it as the perfect complement to an organic color palette. The rust and gray of this carpet have a subdued feel, yet enough contrast to create interest in the room.
For this carpet, woven in India, the artist chose colors of a similar tone. Both the rust and gray are in the mid-range of their color family. This creates a feeling of calm and peace. It also allows it to be versatile and able to work in a range of color palettes without becoming overpowering. This carpet would work well with deep, forest greens and browns. It would also work with navy blue or black for a more dramatic effect.
The artist divided this carpet into sections using changes in the pattern. The top of the carpet introduces the two main patterns of vertical zigzags and horizontal stripes. This presentation introduces them as almost two opposing forces. It contrasts vertical versus horizontal, bold versus more delicate, and straight versus angled.
The bottom of the modernist carpet allows them to intermingle and combine. In the bottom of the carpet, the broad horizontal lines are found within the broader zigzag area. The smaller zigzags are found among the broader horizontal stripes. Yet, the horizontal stripes in this section are clearly visible.
This modern carpet is about contrast, and the artist created a piece that explores artistic concepts of separateness and definition versus the ability to combine in new and interesting ways. This piece is more than a piece of furniture; it is a piece of artwork for the floor.
