Unlike carpeting, which generally covers the entire floor of a room, rugs are small, decorative pieces used to cover a specific area. While carpets are fixed to the flooring beneath with adhesives that should only be removed by a professional, rugs can be picked up and moved at will. Lightweight and versatile, rugs can be placed on top of carpeting, hardwood floors, luxury vinyl floors, or any other type of flooring in your home or apartment. Here are some of the hottest rug and area rug trends to watch out for in 2020:
2020 Rug Trends – Pierre Cardin Home
1. Runner rugs
Runner rugs, which are long, narrow area rugs shaped specially for hallways and staircases, provide several interesting benefits in your home. Not only do they look good and add to the décor of your home but they also add an element of protection especially if you have hardwood flooring or any other kind of hard flooring that is more prone to getting damaged particularly in high traffic areas.
2. Carpet tile rugs
Carpet tiles, also known as modular carpets or square carpets, are squares cut from wall to wall rolls which can be fitted together to make up a carpet. They are justly popular as a flooring option for commercial environments, such as bars and restaurants, and other relatively uncomplicated projects.
Carpet tiles allow you to create custom, unique area rugs that are as durable as they are stylish. For your home, you can use different rugs in size and pattern to give your floor a bold and unique design.
3. Handmade rugs and area rugs
Area rugs are commonly used to cover a specific area on the floor. Pierre Cardin Home is known for the variety of quality handmade rugs. We mention here the Iranian rugs which originate from Persia, Iran today. Their characteristic is the unique style of flowers and floral motifs, woven in silk and the part of the field woven in fur. This combination of materials gives a light-shade rug based on the viewing angle. The density for this type of typology reaches up to 650 thousand knots per m2. It takes approximately 1530 working hours to make an Iran rug.
