If you are in the market for area rugs, you are going to find a wide range of design styles and inspiration. Designers have looked for beauty in unexpected places to reinterpret for the floor. You may notice when shopping that design inspiration has come from fine art paintings, foreign lands, ikats (design technique where the fibers are dyed before the process of weaving to create a sort of ethnic design) as well as the simple inspiration of nature. This season, suppliers have certainly broadened their design scope to appeal to the needs and design style of many.
Additionally, you will find that blue and gray shades are this season’s anchor palettes with the help neutrals such as taupes and browns. Brighter pops of color such as bright coral, crimsons and chartreuse have made their way into the designs in a less overt way to add a punch of color.
