DesignIn many ways, design is less critical than colour, as the colour of a rug has far more impact on its surroundings; a discordant pattern will still blend into most rooms, providing the colours are harmonious. How ever, choosing the right design is important in reinforcing the style and decorative atmosphere of a room.Geometric designsParticularly compatible with Scandinavian and Bauhaus-inspired designs. They can also look good in more classically furnished rooms, provided the tonality of the rug matches the general decor.Repeating designsEmploy a single motif, or group of motifs repeated throughout the rug (herati, boteh, etc,). The pattern is the same from every angle, which affords considerable freedom in the placement of the rug. This is crucial in the successful location of runners and room-size carpet.
