A new trend has landed, one which makes art more accessible, more fun and most importantly more tactile for those who like to get a bit more hands-on. People around the country are having works of art transported from their walls, and the walls of museums, to their floors. There is an extensive collection of art available to the public domain, this art is free to access and use as the copyright has expired, meaning famous works and paintings can be created and placed in any home.
One new and unique method of doing this is to have a custom rug created to an existing design. Modern art works well, is simple enough to create and looks great on the floor. Simple, straight lines, clear designs and bold colors work well with modern interiors, creating a unique focal point and excellent conversation piece which will be preferred by peers and guests alike; while at the same time offering functional comfort and warmth for your home.
Having a custom rug commissioned is easier than you may think, there are various companies around who can create rugs to your own design, it does not need to be a famous painting, and will make the piece to your size. Whether a simple rectangle or square or something that takes on an odd or awkward shape, the choice is yours. Find a design, work out your size and agree on colors and you can have a one of a kind rug, perfect for your interior.
Creating a custom rug is of course more expensive than a standard rug, but does not need to cost the earth. Choices are available from simple plain wool to a mixture of materials, those looking for something that will stand the test of time may opt for a hand-knotted Tibetan weave while those on a more realistic budget can have a rug hand-tufted for less than your would expect.
Of course it is not just art that can be brought to life in this fashion, a kids' drawing or a pattern taken from cushions or drapes could be copied across to tie in perfectly with the rest of your interior. Colors can be picked and pulled from fabric, walls or even light fittings to pull a color scheme together. Having something made to your own specifications really adds the perfect finishing touch to your home and may well be more cost effective than you think.
