As all designers know, preparing for the next trend or looking for the next “big thing” is your life. Sometimes just when you think you’ve found it, a new trend comes out that you absolutely must use in your showcase. You’re always looking to stay ahead in the interior design world, to come up with something so unique and eye-catching before you see it on a Pinterest board.
So how exactly do you “stay ahead?” With Blackstone Carpets, of course! Let’s take a look at some trends we think will dominate in the new year, and get you ready for the Spring style season – yes, it’s already here!
- Green, Green, Green…
The bright, cheery shade of green is something you’ll see in home decor, fashion, and commercial design in 2017. Named the 2017 Pantone Color of the Year, “greenery” is meant to represent refreshment and revitalization. From lime green to emerald, the hue works throughout the home—whether it’s as a wall color or a room-filling rug. Blackstone Carpets has an exclusive designer list of carpets and rugs to choose from, from a full carpet in the entry/living room to an Moroccan accent rug with green hues, that incorporate any shade of green that you desire.
- Cut and Loop Carpet
“Cut and loop” is a style of carpet that combines both cuts (straight) and loops (the ones that look like a little loop, like Berber). Cut and loop carpet was first popular in the ‘70s, lost steam in the ‘80s, and is now returning full force. Cut and loop carpet offers lots of patterns and texture options – a big reason why it’s so hot right now.
- Soft Carpet Is Always In
Softness is exactly what makes carpet special, and that ultra softness is something hard floors cannot compete with. Blackstone Carpets has a unique process of smoothing, spinning and blending natural fibers to create your exclusive designer soft sisal carpet. Blackstone’s soft sisal is 25% more stain resistant than regular sisal. Blackstone Carpets currently offers soft sisal carpet in 16 different designs and colors, each hand-loomed to give every rug it’s own individual look.
- Vinyl Patterns
A recent trend in the last few years has been the increased use of carpet vinyl placed in a mismatched or arranged pattern. Homeowners are using vinyls to create shapes and designs through the layout of their tiles. In 2017, you’ll see a lot of mixing and matching colors and patterns to provide a unique, one-of-a-kind look. We predict this look will stay current in business offices, but a short lived time in residential properties before it loses popularity.
