The over-dyed look offers an update of traditional patterns with more open styling and fresh, new colors. The mix of tradition and technology results in a modern look with a touch of old world charm. Various shades of bright aqua, bold purple and vibrant red are ubiquitous in the trendy, vintage look of over-dyed area rugs and the colors provide new life to the subtle traditional patterns.
Ikat, an antique weaving technique, has entered the home market in a big way and can now be found in everything from ceramics and wall art to throw pillows and upholstery. This look is a natural for the area rug market, as it adds an old world, matchless aesthetic and textural interest to traditional and modern spaces alike. A wide array of colors can be employed, ranging from vibrant, fun brights to sophisticated and subtle neutrals.
Gray has come on as a new neutral and excels when used alongside warmer shades of gold and citron. These colors are found in everything from upholstery fabrics and throw pillows to ready-to-wear clothing and accessories. In area rugs, we use textural yarns and the contrast of matte and shine to complement the tonal colors and, when desired, give a metallic effect in the design.
A large floral has become a very popular route for those customers who want a bit more pattern on the floor. They add interest, color and warmth to the floor in modern, yet comfortable patterns. The larger elements also make a bold statement alongside today’s cleaner, simpler furniture lines.
Outdoor living areas are on the rise and are quickly growing in popularity. Montego, Caspian, Bali and Karavia cover the spectrum of outdoor colors and provide more sophisticated looks in outdoor furniture and area rugs. A style and coloration is available for every customer, from globally inspired medallions and vibrantly colored florals to more simple traditional borders and textures.
