Abstract Design Modern Transitional Rug, Country of Origin: Pakistan, Circa date: Modern – If a bird could paint, what might it paint? How would it paint? Would it use its very own feathers in a sweeping motion across canvas? If so, then that painting might end up looking something like this magnificent abstract rug. It has several sweeping lines of color in a semi-circular motion that look as though a bird’s wing may have painted it.
Neutral grays, taupe and beiges play off each other and combine to create this concentric design within the modern Pakistani rug. The taupe color areas provide greater depth within the pattern for sense of peering downward into a moving cyclone of color. The sheer abstractness of the modern transitional rug could be anything and nothing all at once.
One thing that this art rug is not, is boring. One could easily meditate quietly over tea or coffee while peering into the depths of the rug’s design. The design itself is quite energetic but the colors chosen soften it up and this juxtaposing play of pattern and color ends up creating a modern rug that is extremely calming and zen.
In some areas of the this mostly grey color rug one could even see the possible influences of the like of such artistic icons as Jackson Pollock. One might even see a touch of Picasso as well, during the period when he was slowly moving away from realism to surrealism. The truly fascinating thing about this transitional rug is that the weaver wasn’t influenced by any of these artists, but was invoking bits of the era perhaps unknowingly even.
The neutrality of the color palette lends itself well to most design trends. It doesn’t matter whether the entire room is neutral colors, modern colors, or even bold colors. This rug is extremely easy to place in a room and pairs well with all of the above. If you are looking for an artistic rug that is easy to work with, and a joy to live with, this more affordably priced area rug would make a phenomenal choice.
