New Delhi – April 2020—– Summer is here and you must be in the middle of reshuffling your décor, wondering what carpet to select for the season. Carpets are an integral part of interiors irrespective of the season, not just for decorative purposes, but also for adding comfort and coziness to your space. They anchor the rest of the design features and furniture pieces in a room, completing the big picture. However, thick pile carpets of winter may not always be ideal for summer as they tend to retain heat. So you should consider thinner low pile carpets for summers.
Summer décor calls for keeping everything light and airy with lots of refreshing hues and vibrancy. Irrespective of the material composition, thinner carpets or rugs work best in summer. Hand-knotted rugs with a low pile do not absorb much heat. And in fact, they might help in retaining the cool air emitted by air conditioners. So you could go for materials including wool, botanical silk and bamboo silk, or a combination of two materials that are light and breathable.
At Hands, our range of botanical and bamboo silk carpets complement the summer vibe with their natural hues. From 100 percent wool to 100 percent bamboo silk and botanical silk, and a combination of materials, each one is handcrafted to perfection to offer a fine finish and a luxe touch. They allow you to infuse your space with sprightly colours, fun florals, playful patterns and moody abstracts…
The Bouquet collection with its floral flair, Urbane with its modern and geometric designs, Nouveau with its vibrant and colourful patterns, Minerology with its abstract imagery and bright shades… come to mind.
However, every other collection comprises fresh concepts in its range that evoke a summery vibe. From Contemporary to Traditional and to Transitional… each style offers its own timeless beauty and appeal.
Your carpet selection for summer can have you covered for the entire year. However, if you want extra warmth in winter, you could simply layer it with another – a large carpet over which you throw a smaller one. While it renders the space that much more intimate, it also makes an on-trend statement by adding an extra dimension to your décor scheme. You could create contrasts by pairing a neutral shaded base carpet and a bold, patterned carpet on top, or by pitting two different patterns for a heady note.
