Wall carpet design is paramount to the space’s aura, as the specific pattern and colour choices amplify the visual effect. Wall rugs are essentially woven art and can easily add that extra touch that enhances the interior. Besides this, rugs on the wall also serve a functional purpose of absorbing sound and making the room feel cozy.
COLORS AND PATTERS
A fusion of colors and patterns create a rich design that is the heart of the rug. “Any rug that carries an abstract pattern or looks like a painting would be perfectly suited for the walls. Even rugs that are slightly graphical or figurative add drama to the walls and can give a space more flavor. Sometimes even beautiful compositions of geometry look lovely on the walls. Also, rugs in rich neutral tones and earthy warm compositions fit into all types of décor.”, says Ms. Kavita Chaudhary, Design Director, Jaipur Rugs.
THE HUES OF CARPET
Every carpet has its own tale, from weaving to designing the carpet undergoes several changes and a piece of art is created after serious alterations. “Generally most people like vintage rugs as they have a story behind their creation.The human element is very important especially with older rugs. The workmanship, dyes, raw material that were used a hundred years ago canot be adequately replicated in this day and age. Other rugs that people utilise on a wall are kilims which are a flat weave and made by tribal nomads and have a very ethnic feel, are geometric in nature and can give a room a textured feel and lend character to a space.” speaks, Mudita Chandra, Creative Director, Carpet Cellar.
SIZE AND FABRICS
The essence of rug lies in its fabric and thread used. Ms. Kavita Chaudhary, Design Director, Jaipur Rugs, suggests, “For any medium sized room, a rug sized 4X 6 feet can bring in a dramatic effect. However, a rug sized 2X3 feet best suits a wall, especially if the room is small. For very large rooms sometimes, even a bigger rugs sized 5 X 8 feet or even 8X 10 feet, look fantastic. Usually one finds very painterly and beautiful hand-knotted rugs to be best suited for the walls, however even a low prices hand-tufted rug or a rich piled hand-tufted rug can look amazing on the wall.”
UNIQUE ART DESIGN
Rugs symbolizes the beauty in decay, that the most routine and overlooked parts of our lives can showcase the most charm. Aging in and of itself is an imperfect art and to portray is the main challenge. In rural areas, superficial blemishes go hand-in-hand with a home’s age, but they’re not removed, they’re enhanced, patched over just enough to remain presentable – there’s both a simplicity and complexity to it. .
