Urban Design Modern Transitional Rug, Country of Origin: Pakistan, Circa date: Modern – This piece form our collection of modern transitional area rugs, goes beyond being “just a rug”. It is a fascinating example of textile and / or fiber art and was created by a true rug artist. The design of this modern rug is quite fascinating. In one instance, it feels as though you are flying above a series of buildings staring down at them. In another, you feel as though you are viewing gears, with cut teeth, that are situated within a machine as they circle around. Throughout, simple lines of dark and light connect the larger forms encouraging the eyes to follow in from the top of this magnificent Pakistani rug around and through to the very bottom of it.
If you were to just view this architectural rug for its geometric shapes, you would see triangles, rectangles, squares and circles playing off of each other. All these elements are seemingly dancing in and out of light and shadow from lightest gray to darkest black. It is a visual feast for mathematicians and artists alike, with overlaps in both worlds.
The more modern approach to the design, combined with the limited use of color, make this a versatile rug that is perfect for any urban modern interior design and home decor approach. That said, this beautify of this rug is that it could easily be placed almost anywhere withing a more modern interior design approach.
A modern design aesthetic can pull together many of these similar geometric patterns that mimic the urban landscape. The concept of shape in building and connecting structures exists in all of the aforementioned pieces. In this modern transitional area rug, the design is a bit more abstract. But the viewer still has a sense that the urban landscape seen from above is present in the rug’s design.
