Brand New Carpet Trends – If you’re looking for design inspiration, start with one of these four gorgeous new trends.
Going for the natural
Priority is on handmade pieces made from precious, natural materials – the most popular are the hand-weaved and the tribal rugs. Muted whites, taupes and modern copper tonality are big news this season. The clean, classic color palette is complemented by furnishings, draperies and accent pieces in neutral colors with metallic accents. Rose golds and muted silvers are particularly popular.
Hardwood might seem like the obvious choice here, but carpeting and area rugs work surprisingly well with the neutral-and-natural theme too. For a luxurious feel, choose a shag carpet in crisp white. To accent a Berber carpet or Kasuri rugs on hardwood floor, choose a soft throw rug that incorporates metallic threads.

Bringing historical eras into your home
Lush styles inspired by the high romance of bygone historical eras are also big this year. These period-centric looks make use of antique furniture, statement pieces and fanciful baubles. The key to pulling off a clean decor scheme with all these elements is setting a good foundation.
In terms of carpeting, that means choosing deep colors with shades of gray. Frieze, cut-and-loop and Berber styles all work well with a historically inspired decor scheme. If you’re choosing area rugs to suit this theme, consider ornate floral or geometric designs.

Luxury carpeting began a comeback this year. Ultra-soft, textured styles that feel good beneath your feet are what this trend is all about. Today’s manufacturing technologies mean that luxury carpets offer the best in comfort and durability while offering gorgeous aesthetics.
Of course, it’s important to remember that high-end carpets aren’t suited to every area of your home. They provide excellent performance in bedrooms and other lounging areas. However, it’s best to keep luxury carpeting out of the kitchen, bathroom and basement.
Getting the outdoors inside
Decor schemes that combine the urban and the natural are also big this year. If you plan on bringing live plants into your home but want to enjoy the comfort of carpet, consider Berber, or cut-and-loop styles.
Carpet tiles are also a great choice if you’re set on bringing the outdoors inside. They’re easy to clean and replace, and you can easily configure them to meet your unique style needs. Whatever carpeting you choose, stick with dark browns, greens and neutrals.
