Long overdue, a new generation of area rugs has been born. Unlike the traditional variety in every Home Depot across America, these modern rugs are a work of art and make a bold statement when you walk into the room.
Forget conservative. HZL rugs take over the room, but in a good way. Clearly, if you could afford one of these pieces, you wouldn’t want any furniture in the room. The bold, contemporary designs can even be transferred to print and oil canvas for your walls.
The rugs are handmade with 100 percent wool from New Zealand – the best place in the world for wool. For a few more bucks, they offer a deluxe collection with 35 to 50 percent silk. And you can custom-create area rugs for residential or contract projects.
Based in Norway, 2 Form Design makes one rug that really stands out – “Pebble.” This soft and squishy pebble conundrum blows my mind. If you’re into the Zen or outdoorsy look, you’ll love this area rug made completely out of wool. P.s. they also do custom sizes.
This company puts out modern Square, Square Compression, and Line Compression rug designs. These colorful and geometric area rugs come in all different sizes, including runners. Constructed by the award-winning Ariana Rugs, their collection is made of the finest hand-knotted cotton and hand-tufted wool rugs.
This “Ikat Square Printed Rug” is only $38. It looks killer with hardwood and brightens up the room.
Though not entirely unique with respect to design, Momeni does offer a “New Wave” line that’s distinctive and fresh. With contemporary colors and interesting patterns, I had no problem finding rugs to liven up my house. Some other lines worth mentioning are Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, Deco, Koi, and a modern line called Elements.
