The art of interior decorating takes on a whole new meaning with the new crop of area rugs. Vibrant colors and unconventional patterns are taking the ordinary room to the extraordinary. Wool and nylon are still heavy favorites, but unusual materials such as leather or cork are making their points known.
While custom rugs are still favored by interior designers for their unique patterns, many cutting edge designers are doing their takes on unusual patterns. Jenifer Kobylarz has created a collection for Warp and Weft using large scale concepts taken from natural imagery. Her organic shapes and rich palette lend themselves well to any room.

The result is a stunning and textural appearance.

The new rugs offer a more unique approach to interior decorating. These styles mentioned are not content to be the backdrop, but rather the statement. Choose furnishings with restraint in order to not compete.
