Special Show & Tell: Geometric Rugs # 2
There is something mesmerizing about looking at a geometric rug; the longer we look, the more patterns we see in it. Geometrics are timeless with their roots in ancient civilizations and are seen not only in rugs but also in tilework, weaving, quilting, and artifacts. Colour, both hue and value, plays a vital role in how the pattern is perceived. The symmetry, repetition, and even stitching add to these geometric rugs’ soothing appeal.
