Hard surface flooring, especially hardwood or authentic hardwood lookalikes, are dominating main living areas in single family homes, condos and apartments all over the country. Given this widespread national trend, area rugs have become more important than ever. Rugs not only warm up a room and help designate different areas within open concept spaces, but they also reflect your personal style more than any other accessory available in home design today.
Popular designs in rugs range from the most traditional and intricate Persian style rugs, updated with modern colors, to large, bold graphic patterns or plush shag reminiscent of design found in the 1960s. Below are examples of the hottest trends you will see at Lewis Floor & Home.
The Nourison Aldora Collection evokes the history and intricacies of traditional Persian design. This antique-inspired collection is hand-knotted from a luxurious bamboo extruded silk-like yarn creating an extravagant texture and tone. Persian style rugs, often referred to as ‘oriental rugs’ are usually seen paired with formal feeling period furniture like Country French, Victorian or more rustic American antiques pieces.
Bold Graphic Patterns
Feizy’s Noor Collection is a Tibetan hand-knotted rug in a pile of 100 percent viscose. Viscose fiber possesses a soft hand and a luminous sheen that lends elegance and shimmer to any room. Some typical graphic patterns used are stripes, chevron and herringbone. This particular rug is inspired by hexagon mosaic tiles and when coupled with furnishings with a mid century or modern esthetic will create a bold and dynamic living, dining or family room space.
Handwoven of premium wool and silk-like bamboo fibers, the Nourison Silk Shadows Collection is velvety soft with a subtle yet luminous sheen. The latest organic patterns not only are asymmetrical but also freeform and fluid like forms found in nature. Organic rug styles are the perfect complement when choosing transitional or contemporary style design furnishings.
