Area rugs are important in home decor, serving as both a floor covering and a focal point. They add color, texture, and pattern, while also anchoring a room. The right rug, in the right size, can bring all the elements together and make a spectacular statement.

At IDS 2017 in Toronto, Homedit witnessed examples of customizable statement rugs that were truly dazzling.

We’ve admired Jan Kath’s design innovations for some time now, especially his ability to blend vibrant colors and abstract motifs with traditional rug geometries. This piece is from the Erased Heritage Collection, which pays homage to traditional oriental rugs. According to Kath, “Throughout history, various regions have developed their own distinct characteristics and styles. Through the Erased Heritage Collection, we aim to preserve these ideas for the modern era.”

Elte launched a collection of vintage Moroccan rugs this year with unexpected colors. They sourced high-quality rugs in vibrant purples and deep indigo blues, along with more traditional tones. The result is a warm, inviting line of beautiful vintage rugs for any living space.

The rugs were hand-knotted, sheared to an extra-long pile, and embellished with knotted, tasseled fringes. Although they are now special pieces for contemporary homes, they were originally utilitarian rugs used to warm nomadic tribes in cold temperatures.

Once the size, shape, and colors are chosen, you can select a variety of weaves, ranging from a budget-friendly new technique to the museum-quality Vaara, perfect for intricate designs that require higher definition. The Core Collection is a new, budget-friendly luxury rug made from hand-carded Himalayan sheep wool. The new hand-weaving technique allows for completion and delivery of the rugs in 4-6 weeks.

Amala clearly defines the time frame required for the meticulous creation of each style. The more intricate styles and finer fibers require additional production time. Regardless of the duration, statement area rugs like these are worth the wait.

Architect Jürgen Dahlmanns began collecting rugs as a hobby before starting Rug Star in 2002. He has designed over 10,000 rugs, ranging from modern to traditional. Apart from Persian rugs, which are more expensive due to their higher silk content, and Tibetan rugs, which have a denser weave, the Berlin-based company creates and produces the designs in Nepal.
