Four Reasons to Choose an Indoor/Outdoor Rug

Indoor/outdoor. Easy care. No matter what you call these flat weave and hand-hooked rugs, we love them! Made of UV protected polyester (sourced from recycled plastic bottles) and 100% polypropylene, Company C’s ColorSpree collection has the look of hand-hooked rugs, yet resist fading, staining, and mildew. Despite their workhorse ethics, these rugs make bold design statements no matter which side of the door you place them on. Here are the four winning attributes of polyester hooked and flat weave rugs that will make you fall in love, too.

  1. Location, LOCATION, L O C A T I O N. These rugs are perfectly suited for all your high-traffic areas, including kitchens, outdoor and casual dining areas, entryways, and playrooms. A runner on a covered porch is flawless! Our outdoor hooked and flat weaves take daily abuse, and still look great. Whether a spot clean with mild soapy water, or a complete hose down and air dry, these rugs keep up with your life. Flatweaves, unlike their hooked cousins, are reversible for extended wear.

  2. Signature Company C Design. From sophisticated damask patterns to jaunty flamingo motifs, Colorspree hand-hooked polypropylene rugs are available in a variety of colors and themes, and accent any style. Colorspree flatweaves, made from recycled plastic bottles, are either geometric or striped in their design to ensure they can be reversed….and that they complement each other without being too “matchy matchy”. All are a perfect addition to any casual lifestyle.

  3. Ideal in any climate. Colorspree hand-hooked and flatweave rugs have the look of wool without the heavy pile or shedding making them perfect for any part of the country. From ski boots to swim fins, these rugs stand up with style.

  4. Approachable pricing. Bold color and innovative design are the foundation of Company C. For many people, pets and kids have meant foregoing a statement rug until now! Great pricing, fantastic design, and the ease of care makes a polypropylene hooked or flatweave rug a great choice for your home and your life.

How to bring texture to your rooms

Bringing Texture to Your Rooms

[teks-cher] : Texture defined is the visual (and especially tactile) quality of a surface. While color is important to innovative room design, texture plays an equally important role in creating spaces that are both personal and memorable. Texture’s importance to interior design elevates when rooms and their pieces are composed of neutral and like-toned monochromatic elements. Without texture, these rooms feel sterile and starved for visual depth. Surface qualities, while complex in design theory, can be distilled down to two basic thought processes which are easy to understand.

19540-AQUA-ALT2

Smooth and Shiny Textures:

  • Reflect light and feel cooler
  • Make objects seem visually lighter
  • Are more modern and sleek in appearance

Rough and Matte Textures:

  • Absorb light and feel warm
  • Gives an object more visual weight
  • Are more casual and inviting in appearance

It’s easy to add texture and warmth to a space that feels visually empty. A woven throw and accent pillows in velvet (See our Larissa pillows in all the right colors) add welcome and visual dimension to a couch or chair. Embroidered detail and European linen create casually elegant texture in our Echo collection for the bed and windows. Bare wood floors are highly reflective, and given their smooth and 19540-AQUA-ALT4uniform finish, often feel visually cold. The floor is a great place to anchor the room in texture. This season we have used bamboo-viscose in dressier rug designs, including our exciting Echo rug. The modern geometric design of this textural piece is punctuated by a high –to –low cut and loop pile of wool and bamboo viscose. The bamboo viscose brings shimmer and shine to the design……and takes the texture to another level!

 

Pantone Colors of the Year

Pantone

Designs for Colorful Living. At company C, these are the words that define as a company, and guide everything that we design. Each December, we eagerly await the announcement of the color of the year from the authorities at Pantone…..the world-recognized standard for color consistency in design, and the international proclaimers of annual color trend. From rug and textile design to the clothing you will be seeing at your favorite retailer, Pantone’s color decree shapes the coming seasons. This year was especially exciting as Pantone announced two influencers: Rose Quartz and Serenity. This is the first time that a pair of colors has been named. For 2016 and beyond, pale pink and soft blue will subtly influence everything in the market from shirts to mixers, and of course, home décor.

The people at Pantone live color as much as we do……they debate shades of blue to ensure that anyone can differentiate between navy, indigo, and cobalt hues. But how does Pantone predict the color(s) that will influence design? Here are the high notes:

  • International fashion runways set the pace. From Paris to Milan and New York, Pantone will study color trends during fashion weeks, and how those hues are translating onto the street and into real life.
  • Art collections that are travelling with heavy publicity influence the color selection process, as do trends in the auto industry. Pantone looks for color messaging across varied and diverse touch points to find color commonality, and from there establish direction and inspiration.
  • Color(s) of the year are selected to reflect the collective mood of the times, and as a result these are the colors expected to resonate with customers.

As rose quartz and serenity begin to enter into your product selection process, remember that throughout the season their hues and color values will be adjusted by designers to meet interpreted consumer response. And if you hate soft pink and pale blue? You only have to wait eleven more months to learn what Pantone will fancy for 2017!

Introducing Agra… Inspired by the Taj Mahal

Outstanding design begins with an inspirational spark, and our new Agra rug is no exception! Of this textural masterpiece Christine Chapin, our Chief Color Officer and lead designer remarks, “A trip to the Taj Mahal in Agra, India inspired our Spring 2016 Collection. We were so enamored by the Mughal emperor’s romantic display of love for his wide that he built this magnificent architectural wonder in her honor.”

Taj1

Taj2

And while a statement of love twenty-two years in the making, and a true wonder of the modern world, the Taj’s inherent architectural beauty has never been surpassed. Constructed of white marble, and accented with a scrolled floral design of inlaid precious gems including agate and jasper, The Taj seems to glow in the light of the full moon. Part of a vast complex of outbuildings and gardens, the Taj and its environs were designed around the principle that each piece of the monument would stand on its own while constituting the whole. This is the same philosophy that guides arabesque ornamentation, and the design of our thoroughly modern interpretation, Agra.
