Interior Style - The Oriental inspired Rug


interior style


Floor space can often be overlooked when it comes to interior design although it really shouldn't be, I have discussed before how important dressing your floor space is. It's a space that can add that much needed pop of colour to a room or a sense of warmth and texture, depending on what you decided to lay down. With so many choices it can be hard to narrow down what you want and an oriental rug may seem somewhat outdated but it's not at all, instead it's a classic piece that fits with so many themes and design trends. There’s an array of reasons for this—its craft, its presentation and its long-lasting qualities. I still remember lying on my parents rug looking at all small details in the print.

The great thing about these rugs is they fit really well in a Scandi inspired room with bare wooden floors and a massive Kazak rug with geometric patterns across its surface area looks very chic. Combining modern interiors with classic and traditional ones can make for interesting and inspiring spaces if done in there right way and can create a comforting homely environment.






However you choose to dress up your floor space it's really important to go with a product that is  built to last not simply from a quality standpoint, but likewise from a generational aspect. Traditionally handwoven rug beauties are meant to be passed down generation after generation. There’s a reason why their craft has been venerated for centuries, still maintaining the same allure that made that popular in days past.  The rug’s composition is something of wonder. An Oriental rug isn’t something made by machine, nor is it done in a few days. The process to create an Oriental rug takes months and not by one singular person. Hundreds of threads are woven into the smallest portions of the rug, honing itself so that its durable and sturdy. In doing so, it allows the dyes and inscribed motifs to “pop”.

If your looking for inspiration from real people and see how different rugs work in different spaces and styles of homes do check out their online gallery. Like the one my parents had in our hallway it's still going strong as it's a piece that's meant to last and can be handed down.
