Nourison: Texture and Shine Rule Floor Covering Design
March 17, 2017,
SADDLE BROOK, N.J.-Texture and shine will be among the reigning design themes in floor covering, according to a Nourison analysis of what’s trending in this category.
Nourison’s Aldora Area Rug Collection features a handwoven texture and a soft sheen.
Apparel launches seen at runway shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris will find their way to the floors of America, according to Nourison. These new products feature texture and shine among their main design themes.
Nourison’s upcoming product introductions illustrate how these themes will be incorporated into area rugs. The Aldora Area Rug Collection features a handwoven texture and a soft sheen. The Michael Amini Brilliance, Glistening Nights and Zambiana Area Rugs Collections are made with lurex knits, which add an element of sparkle.
Other runway trends include structured clean lines, mixing fabrics and layering looks for added texture. These fashion trends can be found in Nourison’s broadloom carpet collections, including the Nourtex Euro Collection with Athens and Paris applied patterns and handcarved Mediterranean Collection. The Gingham Collection follows the 1970s plaid theme with Garnet and Sage plaid designs.
“As interior trends continue to evolve, consumers are looking for unique and interesting pieces to cover their floors,” Nourison said in a statement. “A well-crafted area rug or broadloom carpet can serve as a focal point and highlight a space, or it can be subtle and serve as a pedestal for other dramatic pieces in a room. Nourison strives to stay on trend and is sometimes fortunate enough to set a trend. The goal is to have the right products that both the high-end and value-driven consumer would be proud to have in their living space.”
