As close followers of everything shabby chic, we were instantly drawn to the Vintage area rug collection from the RugStore NE. These rugs may feature classic patterns but the attitude is all contemporary.
Squares of jacquard woven fabric are pieced together asymmetrically, like patchwork, to create eye-catching and downright surreal compositions. Soft wool and cotton chenille ensure that the rugs feel as soft as they look, and hand-sewn edges contribute to enviable artisanal character.
Patchwork for Every Modern Interior
We particularly love the Majestic Red pattern. At first glance it appears to be a traditional rug with an antique damask print, but that patchwork effect seems to give it a mysterious quality that could pass equally well in a baroque setting as it would the most minimalist modern interior.
The beautiful Sunbird design takes this versatility in a different direction. The bright colors make a huge impact – what a delightfully uplifting piece! This vintage inspired rug features several different patterns instead of just one, coming together with a sense bohemian freedom while somehow remaining exceptionally cohesive as a whole. Take a look at the Multi Red rug to see this effect with a monochromatic interpretation.
Varied Patterns and Colors Make for Versatile Decor.
The rich textures and patterns used throughout the Vintage collection will allow any one of these rugs to serve as the anchor that ties together a complicated color scheme, and the soft construction will warm even the starkest environment. It’s difficult to find the right rug to complete a room but these nice designs are a smart step forward.
Make sure to stop by the RugStore NE website at http://www.rugstore-ne.co.uk/ to get a look at the Vintage collection as a whole, encompassing everything from the patchwork lines mentioned above to designs derived from classic Persian Heriz and Oriental rugs, and so much more. What can we say? You can’t go wrong with vintage!
