Rug Styles and Types

Cyrus Artisan Rugs has several rug options for you to choose from, including tribal, traditional, contemporary, and transitional rugs.

Tribal Rugs

Tribal rugs are crafted by nomadic weavers from Iran, Turkey, Morocco, and Afghanistan. Each piece's unique and storied history makes its designs one of a kind.

You can use these gorgeous and meticulously handspun carpets to contrast a minimalist space. Tribal rugs often have earthy, neutral hues and geometric, symmetrical patterns that pair well with almost everything.

Traditional Rugs

Traditional carpets are antique rugs that date back centuries. These pieces boast vibrant colors, decorative borders, and ornate and intricate designs that give off an opulent feel. Persian rugs and Oriental rugs are examples of such pieces.

You can incorporate a traditional rug into your living space to break the monotony of a simple design concept. It's also an excellent statement piece that exudes elegance, especially when paired with furniture with soft curves and gentle edges. Candlesticks, luxurious draperies, and still-life paintings also perfectly complement your traditional rug.

Contemporary Rugs

Contemporary rugs break away from the established styles and designs of tribal and traditional pieces. Instead, these handmade rugs feature modern and free design elements that make them stand out amidst other conventional styles.

Their bold look is why they're often hung on walls and showcased like artwork. Contemporary rugs are best paired with furniture with exposed legs so you can still appreciate the rug's intricate design while keeping your furnishings anchored.

Transitional Rugs

Transitional rugs are incredibly versatile thanks to their seamless blend of traditional and contemporary design elements. These pieces feature traditional elements like intricate borders and embroidery and modern details like abstract designs and bold colors.

These rugs are ideal for creating cozy and relaxing spaces. You can pair transitional carpets with clean white furniture and soft dark wood for better contrast.

Rug Brands and Designers

Our rug collection includes pieces made by celebrated designers with multiple awards under their names, such as Kevin Walz. He has been in the rug industry for years and won the prestigious Prix de Rome fellowship from the American Academy. He was also included in the 1994 Interior Design Hall of Fame and inducted into the Metropolitan Home Design 100 Hall of Fame three years later.

While Walz never studied design, he has a fine arts background. His skills from this discipline gave him a more detailed approach when considering his rug design's tones, lights, feel, and textures.

According to Walz, he takes inspiration from past masters and himself whenever he dives deep inside his mind to develop creative modern themes. He also maintains a keen eye for specific nuances in culture-specific design, which is why his rugs are such a hit.

Erbil Tezcan is another example of a rug designer who has garnered multiple awards over the years. Similar to Walz, Tezcan doesn't have a background in design. He began his career as part of the shipping department of a rug company, then worked his way up to manager before finally striking up on his own in the rug industry.

Tezcan typically takes an existing design and re-envisions it to his liking. A fine example is his piece, Summit, inspired by a photograph of capsized boats frozen in ice. Tezcan reinterpreted the design to a mountainous landscape rendered in wool and silk. The rug went on to win the distinguished Best Modern Design, Deluxe Rug award in 2017.

Even with numerous awards, Tezcan creates pieces for the love of the craft rather than the recognition. His recent works, like the piece titled Divine and The Beautiful People, can attest to that. Today, apart from continuing his career in the rug industry, he's also collaborating with his son, Anka, who inherited his gift. Anka's rug, called Circle of Life, was inspired by nothing more than a concrete floor.

Then we have James Tufenkian, one of the pillars of the rug industry. Tufenkian was the one who introduced Tibetan coarser construction back when Persian pieces dominated the market. The idea immediately spread like wildfire in the interior design community.

Tufenkian said that one of his most memorable experiences was the call he got from a Philadelphia rug dealer. He said that once the dealer displayed the Tufenkian rugs in the shop window, it caught the eye of a passing designer in just one hour, who immediately purchased the piece.

Tufenkian loves designing his rugs based on cultural inspirations from a specific geographical location. For instance, he created a rug collection based on the colorful and nature-loving aesthetic of the Northwest.

Manufacturing and Weaving Methods

Our rug collection at our Bloomington showroom includes pieces constructed using various weaves. These include:

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

Machine and power-loomed rugs are our most budget-friendly pieces. These are made using synthetic fibers and natural materials, while flat-woven rugs are more elegant and constructed with low-density fibers. These rugs are lightweight, reversible, easy to clean, and pair well with most furniture.

Our most coveted pieces are hand-knotted rugs. These pieces are crafted by hand, which makes every color and detail stand out. Hand-knotted rugs are highly durable and meticulously knotted to elevate their elegance.

Colors and Decorating Tips

Choosing a rug for your home involves considering three factors: positioning, color psychology, and room orientation. It would be best if you also thought about your living space's size and any existing decor.

Positioning refers to the placement of the rug. If you plan to put a square area rug in a living room, ensure it touches all furniture points. That means its edge should catch the chairs, tables, and sofa to create a cohesive orientation that ties everything together.

For bedroom carpets, you'll want to place them under the bed while still occupying at least two-thirds of the space underneath. If your room is too small for one, you can settle for round area rugs instead. Avoid placing a huge rug inside a small space since it will make the room look cramped and tight.

A round area rug positioned at the side of the bed can also create a textured layer that adds depth. The carpet will also act as the focal point of your room, elevating its coziness and comfort.

Lastly, color psychology will depend on the area you're decorating. For entertainment areas, you'd want red or yellow to emphasize the energy in the room. Black and white area rugs are also ideal for these areas if you want a simple piece that still stands out.

Use different hues of red, orange, yellow, and other warm colors to make the space more inviting to guests. For bedrooms, you can choose pieces with cool-toned shades like blue area rugs to achieve a calm and relaxing atmosphere.

Don't forget to always consider the room's existing décor before buying a rug. A minimalistic space can benefit from rugs with captivating colors as they'll break the monotony of the area. Conversely, a room with a vibrant design should have carpets with neutral colors to dial down the contrast of the space's design.

How often should I clean my rugs?

The general rule is vacuuming your rugs twice a week. If it's placed in high-traffic areas like the hallway or dining rooms, increase the frequency to thrice a week.

You should vacuum your rugs more frequently if you have pets at home since hair and dander can quickly accumulate in the rug pile. An unclean carpet may attract insects and contain allergens that can harm you and your family.

Do you have a rug cleaning service?

Yes. Our experts use effective methods to revitalize your rug and bring back its former elegance. We'll first check for any rug damage. If any is found, we'll provide the necessary repairs. If there's none, we'll proceed with the cleaning procedure.

We'll soak the rug in pH-balanced water with our unique solution. Afterward, we'll gently but thoroughly brush the rug to remove any dust and dirt on its surface. The last phase is rinsing your carpet and letting it dry in a room with state-of-the-art climate technology.
