Rug of the Month
Our January Newsletter, What's Trending...., discussed the new trends of 2014 in decorating. It includes the Color of the Year introduced each year by color experts. This year, the color of the year is Radiant Orchid. In keeping with the trends, our February Rug of the Month is a beautiful, purple Soumak....
Athough, it's not exactly orchid, all shades of purple are popular this year. This soumak has a deep purple field with an ivory border and gold details. These colors are so warm and rich this rug has a very royal feel to it, but the Soumak weave gives it a more casual look as well. The Soumak is a flat-weave, where the design of the rug is made by weaving the weft threads in a herringbone pattern through the warp threads, rather than tying knots onto the warp threads to create a raised pile. The pictures below are close-up photos of the rug which shows the weave. This particular rug measures 4x6 and is currently in our showroom
