Decorating Your Home with Geometric Rugs
Geometric rugs are a beautiful design piece that can make a statement in any home. Rugs anchor all of the other elements in the room, and geometric rugs do this in a trendy and bold way.
Geometric rugs are those which have patterns that are angular and, well, geometric as opposed to floral rugs with swirling, soft, round shapes. These geometric rugs can add a bold statement to any space, depending on the color of the rug and the intricacy of the designs. Let’s explore some fun and trendy ways to use these rugs in your space.
Incorporating Geometric Rugs
If your space is modern and sleek, the perfect addition is a black and white or neutral colored geometric rug. This keeps the space looking energized and alive without having to introduce too much color into a minimalist or modern look. If your space is very minimal, consider choosing a vintage Moroccan rug with diamond patterns or Berber tattoos to incorporate a tribal feel that is still not overwhelming. If the space has room for a little more energy, an antique Persian rug in a neutral color might be your best bet to provide that visual interest.
Use geometric runner rugs in your hallway space. These geometric pieces add visual interest and a playful charm to the space. Use a rug to keep your hallway from looking only like a passageway. With a rug, the space becomes more livable, welcoming, and put together. There are plenty of different runner rugs available in a myriad of styles. Consider a Scandinavian rug in brighter colors to go playful and fun, or choose an antique tribal pattern with primitive shapes if you want the space to feel eclectic. There is no shortage of perfect choices for the hallway!
Another space where geometric rugs are having a big moment right now is in the kitchen. These kitchen rugs are often runner length, to fit in between counters, but they don’t have to be if you have enough space. We are seeing lots of flat weave, tribal rugs in the kitchen right now. They are often in medallion designs. Using an antique or vintage rug in the kitchen is the perfect touch because it adds a pop of color and shape to an otherwise minimal space.
Considerations for Decorating with Geometrics
When you’re decorating with any geometric pattern, try it in small doses. Too many geometric patterns and designs in your space can clash and look chaotic and messy. However, choosing just one or two geometric pieces, such as an accent wallpapered wall, some throw pillows, or a geometric rug, can be the perfect touch. However, don’t be afraid to go big with the one or two pieces you do choose. A large rug covering the whole room with a geometric pattern just adds more interest and doesn’t look messy if there are no other geometric patterns for it to clash with.
No matter how beautifully some modern designers can create geometric patterns, the weavers of antique and vintage rugs undoubtably did it the best. There is something about these handwoven masterpieces that have a sense of life and depth that modern reproductions just can’t emulate. From the primitive, geometric people and animals woven into antique tribal rugs, to stunning symmetrical medallions and details on antique Persian rugs, to the all over designs of Turkish Oushak rugs, to vintage Scandinavian carpets with mod designs, these pieces are treasures and bring life to any space.
