Luxury carpet trends in 2021Jan 12.2021
What are the trends that will change the role of luxury carpets in our homes in 2021? If 2020 was the year in which, like it or not, the amount of time spent indoors increased, 2021 is likely to be the year in which the changes and innovations desired and imagined in the previous twelve months are put to good use.
The ideal time in history to fully express your style
Never before has the home been so central to our lives as in 2020. For many people, the home has become a place to work, a place to relax, a place to pursue their hobbies and even a gym. Time spent in the home is a valuable opportunity to understand what works well in the home and what could be renewed, to enhance the potential of the home and to make it more welcoming and comfortable than ever.
The historical period we are living in, which forces us to reduce social interactions and multiply home moments, is ideal for working to ensure that the rooms in the home perfectly reflect one’s personal style.
Luxury carpets can be a great help to those who want to renovate their homes. Or if you want to make a few changes here and there to make the rooms feel more like home. The furnishing trends for 2021 tell us of very precise choices, made to characterise the home in an unmistakable way.
There is a growing demand for modern carpets, chosen by those who want a home that conveys a message of contemporaneity and attention to novelty. Another trend that will be very popular in 2021 is modern carpets in Scandinavian style. This solution is particularly suitable for a home with a young spirit, which focuses on light colours and essential lines.
Ethnic carpets are also on the rise, as they are a great way to add colour and tell a story. An ethnic carpet is also a great way to travel – with your imagination or your memories – to distant and fascinating worlds.
The revenge of the classics
One of the most obvious trends in furniture choices for 2021 is the return of luxury Oriental carpets. This may seem like a contradiction, considering the furniture choices that focus on modern and contemporary carpets, but it is not.
Oriental luxury carpets are a trendy solution in the new year for furnishing rooms that can maintain their charm over time. These furnishing elements can be used both in one’s main home and in second homes, places naturally dedicated to spending relaxing and carefree moments with the whole family.
A luxury carpet in every room to give personality to the whole house
In 2021, carpets will appear in every room of the house, and outside too! The entrance area, veranda, hallways, walk-in wardrobe and even the bathroom can be enhanced with a luxurious carpet.
The right carpet can be the perfect ally for those who want to renovate one or more rooms in the house, but without having to do any major work. The carpet, for example, can draw attention away from a floor that has little personality or is slightly damaged. For a successful result it is advisable to choose a luxury carpet that has a pattern and colours that are consistent with the type of floor in the room and the colour of the walls.
Bathroom and outdoor carpets will be the focus of interior design in 2021. If the bathroom becomes a small private spa, the patio or garden of the house becomes an extension of the home. A place to retreat to whenever the temperature permits.
To make the bathroom special, we recommend luxury carpets with soft textures and moisture-resistant fabrics and finishes. For a cover-to-cover result, colours and shapes should also be consistent with the overall atmosphere of the room. For example, choosing a modern round rug or an abstract shaped rug can help to add a touch of originality. And it can help bring all the elements back into balance.
Softness, moisture resistance and character are also characteristics that a luxury carpet should have for outdoor use. For this area of the home, the trends for 2021 are for strong colours and geometric or floral patterns.
Nature reclaims its space with eco-chic rugs
The eco-chic style is one of the furniture styles that has been emerging for some time now. What is it? It is a trend that is appreciated by interior design enthusiasts and less experienced consumers alike. However, more than a furnishing style, it is in some ways a philosophy that influences the way of furnishing and living the various rooms in the home.
Let’s be more precise. Spaces are furnished exclusively with materials of natural origin and with little treatment. Those who opt for this style rely in particular on wooden furniture, which is combined with wooden or metal accessories. Textiles made from vegetable or animal fibres are also part of the trend.
Rooms furnished in the eco-chic style are fresh and bright, warmed slightly by the natural tones of wood and the colour and warmth of the chosen materials. In such environments, luxury carpets become the highlight of the interior design. They are the element that adds colour and personality to the atmosphere.
It will come as no surprise to you that there are also eco-chic carpets. For example, there are undyed wool carpets, which are in some ways the quintessence of the modern wool carpet. They are eco-friendly, environmentally friendly and bring out the beauty and quality of the wool fibre to the fullest. Thanks to the variety of wool’s natural nuances, this type of carpet fits perfectly into any room in the house. You can choose lighter or darker shades of colour, depending on whether you want to emphasise the brightness of the room or balance size and volume by playing with colour. The trend gives great freedom of choice in this respect.
A valid alternative, consistent with this style and ideal for those who want a warm and soft carpet, are long pile wool carpets. Again, the pieces are made from untreated fibres and have a design that enhances the role of the chosen material. Such a carpet is perfect as a bedside rug. However, it is also excellent for furnishing a living room or for giving personality to a patio or outdoor veranda.
A trend that is destined to remain: art and decoration meet in textile sculptures
More and more often, rugs are being interpreted in a new way, becoming a creation that elevates them from a simple decorative element to a work of contemporary art. When the carpet becomes a sculpture, it becomes an art object to be admired and proudly displayed to guests in the home.
Lovers of contemporary art and carpets find in textile sculptures the meeting point between these two different forms of artistic expression. In textile sculptures, the materials chosen by the artisans change their shape and appearance, becoming something new and completely original. Shaped by the hands and creativity of the Designers, metals, textile fibres and other materials give life to unique and never seen before works.
The result? The creations are carpets with a three-dimensional design and rich details. Prestigious products made from unusual materials. One example is the creation “Metal Rug: Steel” by Spanish artist Nacho Carbonell. The steel threads are treated like a fibre and knotted by hand to create an effect very similar to that of a traditional rug. The “Circus” carpet by Estudio Campana is another example of textile sculpture and is the result of a completely different interpretation of the concept. The protagonists here are the irregular shape of the carpet and the human figures, which are distributed in a circular pattern over the whole surface, giving the whole a characteristic sense of movement. As mentioned, this is more than just a trend. This is art, in the purest sense of the word, and it is destined to stand the test of time.
Augmented reality at your service
Even those who have a clear idea of how to furnish their homes need to visualise the entire environment before making a final decision on which carpet to choose. They need to check that the style, size and colour of the rugs are in harmony with the furnishings.
Through augmented reality, technology comes to the aid of those who want to be sure of their choices. Nodus has integrated this technology into its e-commerce and, with an extremely intuitive and easy-to-use solution, allows you to “transfer” the carpet from the web page to your home. So you can evaluate the final effect.
So, when you browse through the different models of the Nodus collections, you have the possibility to see how each piece could furnish an individual room. Simply frame the blue symbol on the page with your smartphone to see an augmented reality reproduction of the carpet. This allows you to assess whether the model is right for the room. Or whether you need to continue your search.
The use of AR (Augmented Reality) technology responds to the need and desire of people who want to exploit the full potential of new technologies to build a tailor-made, modern and cosy home. This is also a trend for 2021, but it is not a fad. In fact, AR has a practical purpose: to help customers find their way around luxury carpets easily and effectively.
