Composition is key in all interior design but more than ever when it comes to Scandinavian design. The minimalist and effortless aesthetic, which is used by many Scandinavian companies, can be anything from a block of colour to a delicately drawn line. Where these small details sit can completely transform a rug and consequently bring new possibilities to your room.
For example ‘Shared’ the rug below by Linie Design shows one vertical stripe down the side. This is a contemporary twist on a classic horizontally striped rug. Not only is this composition pleasing to the eye it also brings a clear proportion of colour to your room. The different proportions inspire overlapping of furniture or accessories to create a new shape, breaking out of the sharp rectangular structure of the rug. This minimal yet bold design is a perfect example of a Scandinavian rug.
A contrasting composition to Shared is Memo. The abstract shapes are placed in different ways around each other to show movement with out repetition. The cream background contrasts with the motifs emphasizing the blank space and the composition the motifs create. An off centered design like this will often draw you in much more than a perfectly balanced one.
