The pattern of a rug shouldn't scream or whisper, but rather feel like it's carrying on a lively and enjoyable conversation. In other words, a patterned rug shouldn't be too bold or too dull for the room, but should always hold its own. The rug's design should complement the rest of your interior decor, and tie everything together. A plain, neutral lounge, a bold artwork and a few textured cushions will come to life when set against a backdrop of a chic scroll tile pattern, or a Persian-inspired print. Pottery Barn's printed rugs are handscreened to give the slightly faded appearance of a timeworn heirloom. Our kilim rugs are woven on a hand loom to replicate the look of a Turkish antique. For something with a higher pile, try tufted shag designs that echo the traditional spirit of Moroccan rugs.
