Fall 2011 Rug Preview

Area rug suppliers are giving retail buyers a reason to attend the various markets this fall. Their latest batch of soft floor covering offerings demonstrate varied sources of inspiration but similar efforts to execute design innovatively.
     From Ikats to fine art paintings to foreign lands to nature's subtleties, the gallery of new rug styles demonstrates how suppliers are broadening their design scope, looking for beauty in sometimes unexpected places to then reinterpret it for the floor.
     Blue and gray shades are this season's anchor palettes with the help of more saturated neutral like taupes and browns. Brighter pops of color - bright corals, crimsons and chartreuse are still important, except in less overt ways.
