Abstraction – the Conceptual Foundation for Abstract Rugs
Abstraction is one of the most revolutionary trends in art which started irreversible changes in the 20th-century artistic approach and the general understanding of art. From that moment on, art stopped extracting its inspiration solely from nature, and started to deal with issues of pure form. The basic assumption of abstract arts was that an image should affect the viewer with the force of color, powerful contrast, unexpected juxtaposition of forms and extraction of feelings by playing with dynamism and harmony of the composition. After a hundred years of an unprecedented development of this direction in art, there has emerged a huge number of its variations. Also, different cultures approach the subject differently – there are artists and audiences adoring the imaginative and unrealistic creations but there are also places where the word "abstraction" is associated only with incomprehensible and, therefore, not acceptable art. However, abstract art can teach you that the form itself – the interplay of colors, shapes and lines – can delight. ‘Abstract’ denotes something detached or overall. In art, it is the opposite of the creations of nature. The work of abstract art does not conceal anything besides the personality and feelings of the artist. With the precious help of abstract rugs from our distinctive collection, you can manifest your aesthetic taste and imbue your interior design with a solid dose of soul and expressive emotions. That's why we think abstract rugs are so special – they help to fill the space with not only pattern but also a distinct vibe.
Decorating with Abstract Rugs
Usually vibrant, expressive and abundant in form, abstract rugs may present certain challenges for inexperienced decorators. However, if one strongly feels the given aesthetics and remembers that in decorating, as in majority of visual arts, less very often means more, he or she will succeed brilliantly. A striking and dramatic abstract rug should constitute the focal point or the axis of the design as there is no chance it will calmly stand beside or disappear in the rest of the décor. Thus, abstract rugs work best in more minimalistic arrangements in which they are emphasized and set the tone for the entire room – the application of a bold carpet in an equally bold space should better be left to the professionals. However, do not be misled. Not all abstracts rugs are synonymous with intensity – it is a common misconception to assume that an abstract rug will be glaringly ostentatious. Some carpets with abstract designs constitute a vision of serenity and peace, taking us to tranquil and ethereal places in our heads and hearts by the means of properly softened lines, delicate mirages and subtle color palettes. That is probably the most crucial aspect of abstract rugs which should always be kept in mind while decorating – in addition to adding patterns and colors, abstract rugs create mood and evoke emotions comparable only to those raised by the works of fine art.
