Top Trends in Rugs 2022
One of our favorite ways to make a house a home is by bringing attention to the floors as they are the fifth wall in a room. Area rugs help bring the decorative elements of a room together and create a cohesive look. While they may be accented by furniture, they are often the focal element in a space. Between choosing the proper size for your space and narrowing down pattern and texture to one that appeals most to you, selecting a rug can be challenging. However, the ability to tie a space together makes any amount of effort a smart investment.
What Are This Year’s Top Trends for Rugs?
The New Year 2022 brings with it five trends that emerged over the past two years, some a continuation and others a breath of fresh air. They include bolder color, pattern on pattern, a continued and stronger focus on sustainable and ethical materials, personality, and storytelling.
An increased awareness and appreciation of comfort and relaxation continues, nowhere more so than the minute we walk in the front door of our home. We want our personality to drive the aesthetics of our living spaces and fabrics and materials to provide a comfortable and cozy haven from the stresses of daily life.
Neutral patterned rugs include Turkish Kilim, Shag, Abstract, Tribal, and Chevron made from natural fibers of wool and cotton. Ethically sourced hides are another way to add organic texture to a space. Try layering a beautiful hide on a neutral toned rug for an exquisite look or go for more personality with a contrasting hide on a rich colored pattern on pattern loomed rug. This year gives you a rich selection of options in both colors and materials.
Neutral Pattern Rugs
Neutral tones in an area rug are calming to the eye and give primary focus to furniture and decorative pieces. While they unify a design concept, they also play a support role to a statement piece or architectural detail. Neutral area rugs pair easily and flawlessly with a multitude of patterns and textures. Put a neutral rug in your open concept home to tie all living spaces together.
Is Cowhide Just for Traditional Western Design?
A cowhide offers the perfect balance between traditional western design and a modern aesthetic. On their own or layered on top of a neutral rug, they create drama and texture for any room. Try a neutral cowhide of peppered champagne or grey to modernize your space. The soft, natural tones will fit in almost any room decor.
