Our Rug Types and Styles

At Cyrus Artisan Rugs, we've divided our pieces into four categories: tribal, traditional, contemporary, and transitional.

Tribal Rugs

Tribal rugs are time-worn carpets originally constructed by nomadic tribes in Iran, Morocco, and Afghanistan. Tribal rugs go well with modern-themed homes since their rustic, old-world charm perfectly complements a trendy contemporary aesthetic.

Moreover, their neutral colors make them the perfect seamless addition to almost any room. For example, tribal black and white area rugs placed inside a gaming room can instantly elevate its visual appeal.

Traditional Rugs

Traditional rugs can function as a central figure in any room. Bold, exquisite, and eye-catching—these rugs effortlessly add a layer of sophistication wherever you put them. Persian rugs and Oriental rugs are typical examples of these carpets.

They make great additions to a room with a minimalist design, further enhancing their unique elegance. Furniture with gentle curves and soft edges, exquisite vases, candelabras, and still-life paintings pair well with these opulent rugs.

Contemporary Rugs

Contemporary rugs break away from the conventional styles found in tribal and traditional pieces. These carpets are easy to identify as they won't look like any rug you've seen before–for example, contemporary bespoke area rugs with geometric patterns and bold colors.

Always consider the design when pairing a contemporary rug with a piece of furniture. A carpet with an overall pattern can still showcase its print even when placed under large furniture pieces. But if it has a single design element, like a flower or a fruit, consider putting it under a piece of furniture with exposed legs. That way, you're displaying the rug design's full beauty.

Transitional Rugs

Transitional rugs marry elements from both traditional and contemporary pieces. As such, it's the most versatile type among the four types since it can be sophisticated yet comfortable; simple yet arresting.

Most transitional rugs are designed to enhance the design elements around them. In short, they do well in the background instead of taking center stage, such as in cozy areas conducive to silence and relaxation. Adding transitional bedroom area rugs in a nursery or library can enhance these areas' soothing atmospheres.

Rug Brands and Designers

Award-winning designers have contributed numerous pieces to our Hillsborough, CA rug collection. These creative masters source their inspiration from different areas making our rugs unique and elegant.

Thomas O'Brien is one of these virtuosos. His rugs reflect modern and classical design elements to create stunning pieces. O'Brien has always had an eye for versatile patterns, which he emphasizes by using sharper lines and shapes. In turn, the material becomes more distinct. This skill allows him to insert a traditional flavor into a modernist space.

Another noteworthy carpet designer is Barbara Barry. The inspiration for her rugs ranges from small doodles to the stars. She typically chooses a single hue for her pieces but plays it up by using different shades and tones. Her contemporary handmade rugs, for instance, could have walnut, caramel, cinnamon, and hickory for their design. Barry said that gradation plays a primary part in her work, producing a calming effect.

Then there's Jenny Jones, whose primary goal is to create an emotional connection with her audience. She does this by rearranging classical designs to suit the modern era. In 2001, Jones joined some designers in Australia to create contemporary hand-knotted rugs. Since then, she has earned awards while staying true to her passion.

Meanwhile, Erbil Tezcan gets his inspiration from mundane patterns to stunning photographs. His gift is rearranging these designs in his mind and interpreting them in his rugs. One of his most celebrated pieces is a rug called Summit, inspired by a photograph called “Stacked Boats, Lake Baikal, Russia.”

As the name suggests, the photograph showed capsized boats frozen in ice. Tezcan flipped this upside down and transformed the image into a mountainous landscape depicted in silk and wool. In 2017, it won the prestigious Best Modern Design, Deluxe Rug award in Hanover, Germany.

Safavieh has been around longer since 1914. One of its pillars is creating antique rugs produced from weaving centers around the world, with designs inspired by couture clothing.

Manufacturing and Weaving Methods

Our rug collection includes rugs produced using different weaves. These include:

  • Hand-knotted
  • Flat-woven
  • Hand-loomed
  • Hand-tufted
  • Power-loomed
  • Machine-loomed

If you're on a budget, our machine and power-loomed rugs are your best option, as these are made with synthetic fibers and natural materials. On the other hand, flat-woven rugs are charming and easier to move because they're made with low-density fibers. They're also reversible, easy to clean, and complement any furniture piece.

Our most exquisite luxury rugs are our hand-knotted pieces, made using millions of knots to ensure their design and material stand out. They're also highly durable, making them perfect family heirlooms.

Colors and Decorating Tips

Color psychology is one of the fundamental rules to consider when using a rug for interior decoration. Maximizing color can evoke different emotions.

Red connotes passion and energy, so they're often used for entertainment areas like the living or dining room. A fiery red square area rug can enliven conversations among your guests and put them at ease.

On the other hand, blue is associated with calmness and relaxation. Light blue area rugs placed inside a bedroom can enhance the space's cozy atmosphere. Moreover, it can encourage greater focus and clarity of the mind.

Get a yellow square area rug if you have a dimly-lit area you want to brighten up since it can illuminate corners with poor lighting, like a small bathroom or a tight kitchen. Just be mindful that you don't go overboard with too much yellow, as it could contribute to feelings of agitation instead.

Aside from color psychology, it helps to position the rug in your space strategically. If it's in the living room, the rug should be big enough to touch all the corners of the furniture. This arrangement creates a sense of cohesiveness, making all the elements appear part of a bigger whole.

For small spaces, avoid decorating with long rugs that stretch from one wall to the next, as it could emphasize the cramped space and make your room look smaller. Settle for round area rugs instead. The piece can act as an island that adds dimension to the space.

It would help if you also considered the rug's design relative to the room's décor. For instance, if you have a minimalist living room, try adding square area rugs with vibrant colors like red or orange. You'll immediately see how the rug's vivid shades can break the room's monotony.

Conversely, add square area rugs with neutral colors like beige or white if the room is already vibrant. The carpet will absorb some of the décor's visual noise and make it look less overwhelming.

Regarding rooms with too much natural light, avoid exposing your rugs to UV rays as it could fade your rug's design and color. A faded carpet loses its visual appeal, and you'll need the expertise of professionals to restore its quality.
