Floor coverings play a vital part in the look and feel of a room. Tribal rugs, known for their unique designs and colors, bring a special warmth and spark to a home that is hard to resist. One-of-a-kind tribal-style rugs showcase the focus and creativity of weaving artisans who have been handing down traditional techniques for thousands of years. Bring this culture and history to any room of your home with a handmade piece that layers patterns and colors in a unique way, whether through bold shapes or softer geometric designs. A tribal rug is generally produced by nomadic people, with designs and style varying around the world. Choices include Gabbeh, Abadeh, Kazak, Serapi, and Yatak rugs, among others. No matter your taste, you’re sure to find a piece that you love.
Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
