In a world where design tests new concepts every day and attempts odd elements so as to amaze people, simplicity seems to be untrendy in interior design.
Simplicity of shapes and colours is often a synonym of elegance and refinement as well.
This trend also affects furnishing fabrics and contemporary rugs.
Thanks to the great market demand, more attentive manufacturing industries leave patterns to make room for big plain backgrounds. If, on one hand, they can seem almost trivial products for their extreme aesthetic simplicity, on the other, monochromatic style fully enhances the precious materials they are made of.
Today the most popular contemporary rugs must be luxury, that is why the most sought-after yarns are the satiny ones which give shot effects by the light of the sun.
So, classic silk, vegetable cocoa and bamboo silk and viscose are particularly suitable. Evergreen handmade wool is not satiny, but always fashionable.
Besides classic plain colours, there are also more original choices for those who want to dare but always keeping refined and minimal style. As a matter of fact, it is possible to play with the “tone-on-tone” effects on contemporary rugs where the pattern is simply made with the carving technique. In this way, design will be very soft and other colours will not be used but the basic one.
This manufacturing is called carving and is made by skilled staff who carve by hand all the pattern previously designed. After pile has been removed, when the work is completed, there will be a sort of bas-relief with lights and shades enhancing the decoration.
Finally, we must mention the fashionable colours of contemporary rugs, too. Every year shades change following the latest trends, of course, but we can definitely say that for some time some colours have been establishing over the other ones within interior design. And they are: grey, beige, white and brown.
Linearity of minimal interior design can be brightened up by some original and coloured objects to be put here and there in the room so as to create personal and unique style.
