The colors of fall 2017 as seen in our rugs and on the runway
Every spring and fall, the team at the Pantone Color Institute — the global authority on color and provider of color standards for the design industries — examines which colors were repeatedly seen within designers’ collections during New York Fashion Week.
As we sit on the brink of fall, we thought we’d revisit several of the hues that Pantone predicted to be huge by the time the end of 2017 rolls around. Among them are Butterrum, Grenadine, Shaded Spruce, Neutral Grey, and Lapis Blue. And you guessed it — we paired one of our very own rugs with each below.
Use the summer to showcase a kilim
Summer is the perfect time to rotate lightweight flatweave rugs into your home decor. They’re durable and low profile, making them particularly great for high traffic areas. You could also consider putting a kilim down in place of your thick, pile rugs while they’re sent off for professional cleaning.
The most valuable rugs in the world

Living rooms we love: Oushak edition
Oushak rugs are of Turkish origin but unique for the extent to which they were influenced by Persian designs. True to Turkish form, they’re coarsely woven and often notable for their monumental scale. Color palettes are soft and light in tone, and the medallion motifs are more rectilinear than what you would find in a classic Persian rug. With this singular combination of size, color, and variety of designs, it’s no wonder that antique Oushaks are one of the most sought after types of rugs to stage a living room around. Check out some of our favorite Oushak-adorned living rooms in this edition of Living Rooms we Love.
