Regardless of their colors or patterns, the rugs will boost schemes to make you feel current and relaxed. When it comes to vintage rugs, Turkish Oushaks are designer Ann Flanagan's favorite. “I like to stick with a neutral color palette and have fun with the design,” she says. Because these rugs have had a previous life, Flanagan usually cleans them before combing them at home.
However, its second-hand nature certainly comes with a number of benefits. Flanagan adds: “It usually has that natural patina from years of use and I'm less worried about spills, crumbs, or wandering doodles with crayons.” By no means are they simply a part of the past, says designer Annie Santulli. When we tell people that furry hair is back, it reminds us of a wood-clad den from the 1970s, but today's furry hair rugs are a new version of the old style, he explains. Made with natural materials of different textures, they are a tactile delight for your feet.
Not sure where to place one in your house? Think about where you spend most of your time barefoot. Santulli says, “We especially love adding furry rugs to rooms to take that luxurious first step in the morning. Applying a biophilic design approach to area rugs would be as simple as finding rugs made from natural materials and those with textures and designs that mimic organic objects found in nature. This trend is perfect for those looking for new ways to use their old rugs and it also goes well with the vintage trend.
