Beautiful Room Size Modernist Collection Rug, Rug Type / Country of Origin: India – Gray and white are modern design essentials. They are finding their way into a range of styles from ultramodern to Boho chic. This gorgeous medium gray and white piece is neutral, but not too dark. The artist used a balance of white and gray to create a piece that is on the lighter side and will create a welcoming, open feel in the room.
The design of the modernist collection carpet uses classic stripes created by using changes in the pattern. The design has a pattern repeat, but it is placed so that the entire pattern can be seen in its entirety in the center of the carpet, but it is only suggested on the ends of the rug. This creates a feeling of rhythm in the piece.
The artist of this carpet created in India created balance and harmony using a number of different techniques in the piece. For instance, the lines gently change direction as the eye moves up the carpet. It has a feeling of rhythmic motion and flow. The angles and lines are softened by the long, white pile. This softens the changes in direction and makes them a little less sharp.
This is a beautiful, versatile modern rug that uses texture and line to define the space. The geometric design gives it a formal feel, but the texture of the pile softens it. The beautiful gray of the carpet would complement the blues and whites of a coastal cottage or provide a sense of warmth in a modern urban apartment. This piece could easily complement darker contemporary furniture, or you could also use the lighter end of the color spectrum with this piece. The artist enhanced the versatility of this piece by using balance in both the design and color choices.
