Surya’s rugs are horizontal works of art. The 30-year-old company, founded in India, spins out a vast variety of high-quality, hand-knotted wool carpets, including elaborate Oriental patterns, romantic damask prints, and graphic contemporary designs — and has partnered with everyone from fashion designer Bob Mackie to the Smithsonian to create special collections. Recently Surya has partnered with HGTV's Angelo Surmelis, host of uber-popular show 'Rate My Space', to create the Angelo:Home line of rugs. With a motto that claims “360 degrees of style,” Surya also designs throws, pillows, and even wall art inspired by — and meant to coordinate with — its rugs.
Conflicted over whether you want a solid or a printed rug? A tonal look may be just what you’re looking for. To that end, these tone-on-tone floor coverings impress with their saturated, gradated hues. They’ll add plenty of visual interest to any room, without going over the top.
You can’t go wrong with a blue, white, and gray color scheme. It’s endlessly versatile: it can go preppy, nautical, uptown, downtown, bookish, stately, or relaxed. The floor coverings on offer here exemplify this goes-with-anything quality — they’re pieces that transcend trend and season, and are always appropriate and elegant.
We love the distressed-rug trend because it’s toned-down and laid-back, yet sophisticated — these designs will fit in as well in a semi-formal room as they will in a breakfast nook.
All the furnishings and accents here are inspired by midcentury-modern style … but without the staggering price tag that often sadly typifies this aesthetic. So you can make your picks without guilt. Add structure, sophistication, and personality to your room with these standout designs.
