Hard floor surfaces may be trending in the interior design for many years now, but soft-touching carpeting will never go out of style. As a matter of fact, each season, contemporary interior designers give a green light to the carpets because they complement the hard flooring perfectly and add a dash of comfort to every room. Keep reading to see what’s trendy in carpet design this fall.
Modern Interpretations of Traditional Rugs
Carpet weaving was an essential part of Persian art and culture. This specific type of carpet stood the test of time and kept its popularity even in 2016. Traditionally, they are made of heavy textile with elaborate colors and artistic details. Famous rug designer Hossein Rezvani presented the 21st century Persian carpets made of wool and silk in neutral colors with modern copper tonality as a contrast. It’s a modern upgrade of a traditional rug with revised patterns and high-quality knot-work.

Mother Nature as an Inspiration
High-quality synthetic fibers are a great option for making carpet design, but designers decided to give a chance to natural materials as well. Besides soft wool and smooth silk, rattan and coconut fibers are also a big hit this season. It’s always a good idea to get some carpet fitters in to do the job for you! As for colors, neutral tones, such as beige and gray are timeless classics, but the trend of white carpets is emerging, too. Due to today’s technologies, fibers are cleanable, so light shades for carpets are no longer a big risk. Furthermore, white on white looks very elegant and makes any room look more spacious. Bright colors are a great option, too – especially for the hallways and other small areas, where you can experiment without it being too overwhelming.

It’s All About Patterns
Stripes, geometrical, Polka Dots – you name it because patterns are always current. Colorful, geometric patterns will look marvelous on floor rugs for kids while more subtle motifs on the so-called “new neutrals” (pastel shades of green, blue, and yellow) make the perfect choice for any room. A cut and loop style was very fashionable in the 70s and made a great comeback in the last few seasons. It’s a special technique that combines looping fibers with straight ones and makes a geometric or abstract design. Besides, Berber style is trendy again but now with even more texture and pattern.

Bring the Landscapes Inside
When we said Mother Nature served as an inspiration, it didn’t end with colors and materials – it’s seen on carpet prints as well. For the season 2016/2017 designers presented winter and frosts-inspired rugs. With mild colors merging into each other and dramatic movement, this print makes a perfect addition to your bedroom or living room since it can give that airy, yet monumental feeling to any space. Natural scenery and soothing landscapes combined with tasteful colors are also among the hottest trends in home decor, so make sure you check out those as well if you consider purchasing a new rug.

Greening Things up on Your Floor
Nowadays, everything seems to be green and carpeting is not an exception. Besides the usage of natural materials, designers and manufacturers took a step further and presented ecological rugs hand-braided of excess materials coming from the clothing industry. It’s not only green and sustainable but also trendy and very stylish. In addition, the production doesn’t require machines nor large spaces and can be a great example of social entrepreneurship. Eco-friendly, socially responsible, and stylish – what more could we ask for?
