An abstract rug is often seen as a piece of art or showpiece because of its unique pattern. The designs, ranging from cascading printed curves and bursts of color to soothing geometric patterns, are meant to stand out.
Abstract rugs come in a variety of colors, sizes, styles, and materials. These hand woven rugs usually involve a diverse range of tones and hues. The trademarks of an abstract style are freeform shapes, bold use of color, and asymmetrical design. However, these custom rugs can also display a more limited palette with subtle variations in pattern and tone.
Abstract rugs have a strong, decorative presence. They make a statement in a room and offer no apologies. Abstract rugs want to be noticed, and are a great way to liven up a space that might otherwise be dull and boring.
When you choose an abstract rug, you’re saying something about your style. Are you traditional or contemporary? Silly or serious? Formal or casual? Picking an abstract rug is like putting your personality on display for all who enter your home to see.
You can place an abstract rug almost anywhere, just make sure you accommodate for size. A small abstract rug should go in a small space; a large abstract rug should go in a large space. You want your custom rug to fit the room, but not be over-the-top or overshadowed.
Since it’s a showy item, the ideal place for an abstract rug is where most people gather in your home. Living rooms and dining rooms are good choices. Set down a cup of coffee or pick up a fork and get ready to hear questions like, “Where did you find that rug?”
The following woven rugs are all part of a collection by Tufenkian called ‘Untitled.’ It’s a new series of intensely colored and spontaneous designs created to celebrate the artist's subjective point of view.
The unique craftsmanship of Japanese denim is where Canvas Denim draws its inspiration. The influence of abstract expressionists is seen in long, painterly brush strokes and seemingly random, yet intentional, design. The contrast between the deep indigo and the bright white is highlighted by the shimmer of bamboo silk.
Canvas Denim is available in our standard sizes of 3’ x 5’, 6’ x 9’, 8’ x 10’, 9’ x 12’, 10’ x 14’, 12’ x 16’ and 13’ x 18’. Custom sizes, runners, squares, and rounds are also available.
Jackson Firewood is a nod to abstract expressionism as well. It’s an energetic masterpiece rendered in the finest handspun bamboo silk. The organic design will elevate any interior to a work of art. It’s seemingly random, but perfectly balanced.

Marcel Light Taupe combines organic style and craftsmanship into a piece of modern art reminiscent of the Dadaist movement. Organically changing shades of grey create a monochromatic carpet that demands attention. This makes the piece a versatile choice for many styles of decor.
