Damask Rugs Bring Luxury and Style to 4 Interiors

Posted by Kate Watson on Nov 22, 2013 8:50:00 AM

Damask rugs can bring a feeling of luxury and style to an interior because of their rich cultural history, beautiful patterns and artistic colors. Damask rugs are inspired by damask fabrics which were first woven in Damascus in the middle ages. The beauty of these fabrics results from the fact that the pattern is woven in a satin finish and the background is woven in a matte finish. The best damask rugs also contain two different textures- a cut pile and a looped surface. The pattern is woven in cut pile and the background in loop. The texture of damask rugs gives an additional dimension to its pattern and colors which in turn adds a richness to the room design. However, not all damask rugs contain a combination of two different textures. Since cut and loop weaving is far more difficult the plain cut pile weaving, most damask rugs are made in just cut pile. They are still called damask rugs because their patterns are inspired by damask fabrics. So how can you use a damask rug to enhance the interior design project? That’s what we’re going to show in a quick tour of four elegant interiors where leading designers have used damask rugs to create fabulous interiors.

Damask Rugs Enrich 4 Interiors with History and Beauty

Posted by Kate Watson on Nov 17, 2013 9:22:00 PM

Damask fabrics originated in the Middle Ages in the ancient city of Damascus and they have evolved over hundreds of years with influences from Byzantium, Persia, Italy and France. This rich artistic history gives damask fabrics a unique appeal. The pattern in a damask fabric is woven in a different weave than the background- for example if the pattern is woven in a shiny satin weave and the background in a duller weave, the contrast between the shiny pattern and duller background adds another dimension. This added dimension and texture distinguishes damask fabrics from fabrics in which the pattern is merely printed on the cloth. The best damask rugs follow the lead of damask fabrics and they also contain two different textures- the pattern is usually in cut pile and the background is in a loop weave. Today most damask rugs take a simpler approach and are made in just one texture which is usually cut pile. These damask rugs do not have the dimensional interest and texture of a cut and loop damask rug. Damask rugs come in a variety of color palettes ranging from tonal colors to highly contrasting colors. The four interiors in today’s post feature different styles of damask rugs and show how to design stylish rooms with these sophisticated rugs.
