Area Rug Color trends in 2017: hitting the runway

It’s fashion, it’s trends, it’s color, it’s carpet. The 2017 color trends in carpets are not unlike the big explosions on the major fashion runways—without the models. Imagine that it’s the runways themselves that are the stars, laying out fashionable carpet after carpet to enviable onlookers.

If you like bold, this is your year. While floors are trending towards extreme lights and darks, carpets are going bold in their color statements. Homeowners are turning their choices toward assertive colors, offering more distinctive styling and fashion appeal. And since carpeting is currently not a whole-house flooring endeavor in general, buyers have the opportunity to make convincing statements.

Strong colors emanating from commercial pallets are coming in a variety of textures with accents: multicolored loops, cut loop surfaces, and Berber styles. Bold blues, oranges, purples, and multi-colored carpets and rugs are in the eye of the color storm this year. Carpets of robust color have stepped out of the back room and onto the runway! For a glimpse, check out our Mafi Signature 16 Collection, which allows you to create designs and custom color area rugs in a 3D environment, where colors and textures come alive—an invaluable tool for interior designers appreciating a higher standard in visual presentation.

G’Day collection mega-core

If you are thinking of going wall-to-wall with color, then say hello to our G’Day collection, handmade from the finest pure New Zealand wool (the most ecologically sustainable fiber in the world). Using our customized rug finder program, you can express your every colorful and textural delight with unmatched luxury looks that add keen attention to a room when coordinated with florals, stripes, and other patterns on furniture and window drapes.

While bold is beautiful and presently owns the runway spotlight, strong and loud statements can be fleeting and likely will recede in popularity over time. But if bold indeed has the better of you, consider carpet tiles or area rugs so that when trends change, your home can as well.

Yes, bright colors may reign now, but neutral carpets are always a steady force, with their browns and grays setting the perfect stage for decorous furniture and vivid wall paintings.
