Let’s be honest; not everything is always black and white. If you found your perfect antique rug to create that heavenly ambiance you’ve always wanted, or today’s more modern rug that provides the visual inspiration and focal point you were looking for, that is fantastic! But not everyone, or every rug, is one or the other.
Transitional rugs are often ornate and have intricate details woven into the fabric; modern rugs embrace strong geometric patterns with light-colored hues and vibrant bursts of color for an eye-popping visual impact; transitional rugs blend both traditional and modern or contemporary styles together.
Lawrence of La Brea’s Transitional Collection combines elements from both traditional and modern or contemporary styles. Transitional rugs offer the best of both worlds. You can feature an area rug that has character with a decorative pattern similar to an antique rug but with the splash of bright, bold colors that you would find in a modern rug.
Freedom. That’s what the Lawrence of La Brea Transitional Collection offers. The freedom for you to choose the perfect rug that speaks to you; the choice to adda stylish, trendy, versatile rug to any décor.
Meticulously crafted. Unique. One-of-a-kind designs. These are just a few words that come to mind describing all of Lawrence of La Brea’s Handmade area rugs.
Handmade area rugs are created from many different areas around the world. Rugs from Persia and India, and of course, Oriental rugs are a few of the most recognizable and most often instantly come to mind when you think of a handmade rug.
All Lawrence of La Brea handmade rugs reflect unparalleled craftsmanship: intricate details and motifs; personal stories of the weaver, the tribe, the region where the rug originated, make each handmade rug special. These rugs aren’t perfect by design…they are designed to tell a story.
Handmade rugs are available in a multitude of fabrics from cotton and chenille, from wool to silk. Every handmade rug is knotted by hand; therefore, the knots and weaving are not perfectly uniform. The quality, time, attention to detail, the vision behind each of the handmade rugs make each one an extraordinary treasure that can be enjoyed for many generations to come!
The mention of wool may no longer surprise you as this material is vastly known for its durability and quality. It has long been the norm that materials sourced from Mother Nature are inevitably some of the finest ones in the world.
Rugs made of wool come at a hefty price only because they last the longest, despite being a soft haven even when barefoot. Even more so if the wool is sourced from highlands where a sheep’s wool is thicker and would be more resistant to dirt, dust, and water.
Natural materials are always the superior quality in comparison to synthetic ones. The material of the base should be wool, silk, or cotton for better quality. Wool rugs should be completely matte in comparison to a shiny silk rug. Natural materials also have an effect of the air quality of the air in the room that it is placed in.
