Runner Rugs

Runner Rugs: A Place in Every Home

Runner rugs are extremely versatile and serve many purposes in a home*. They provide a focal point or define an area of interest. They can also be placed in any room: in front of the kitchen sink, an entryway or hallway or flowing down a flight of stairs.  And such rugs can be changed with the seasons or per your mood!

When we create custom runner rugs for a home there are many elements to consider. The colors and design of an area runner rug should bring together the colors of a room. Because we are using latex paint for the hand painted canvas runner rug we use a paint swatch kit and consider what works  in harmony with the colors of the floor, curtains and furniture. All design reflects character or a theme and creating a custom rug allows the perfect ambiance.

Chorotega Pottery

On a particular custom runner area rug project we  used a design taken from the art of the Chorotega Indians of Costa Rica. These Indians work with pottery using earthy colors such as rust, mustard yellow, browns and black. Natural clay colors and tans coupled with black go well with the terracotta flooring; this runner rug provides a focal point and warmth for a tile floor.

Additionally, canvas rugs for wood floors are ideal for decorating and functionality. Using runner rugs can help preserve a wood floor especially in high traffic areas. A runner rug in a hallway can turn a simple passage into a statement. And there are few stairways that don’t look stunning with a runner cascading down them, providing protection and decorative beauty.
