Why carpets are here to stay – latest trends

Many think there’s no room for carpets in today’s modern home.

After all, is there anything that compares to the luscious feeling of a soft carpet?
If durability is a concern, you need not worry.
The advances in today’s technology and creative design guarantee that your carpet will have a long life ahead.

Do you want to know what the latest trends in carpet design are?

  1. Neutrals with a dash of color. Classic neutral will always be a safe option but to add a contemporary feel, give them a small dash of color that screams vivid and unique.

  2.  Deeper tones in high-traffic areas. These days, the best way to ensure the longevity of your carpet in stairs and hallways, is by installing a strong, durable carpet in a forgiving shade like charcoals and chocolate browns.

  3. Stepping beyond the monochrome. Colour is shining in many different and innovative ways like super-sized cut piles that reveal a contrasting tone in the centre, abstract and painterly designs, woven stripes, and the eclectic sophistication of stippling, where different colours and textures are woven together in a single yarn. 

  4. Bespoke comfort. In the modern home of today, the comfort factor has never been so high. Away from the heavy traffic of a corridor or stairway, the bedroom is the space for velvety indulgence and deep textured with a handcrafted, bespoke feel like oversized loop piles, high, dense twists and chunky felts. 

  5. Blending materials. Although wool is an all-time favourite, the latest materials combine it with everything and anything - from silk and cotton to linen and even paper! These luxurious and at times surprising fibres are generally woven into the designs as separate, highlight features, resulting in multi-layered carpets – the perfect combination given that wool is stain-repellent and incredibly durable and man-made fibres are affordable and easy to clean.
