50 Shades of Gray Rugs

Gray... the  multi faceted, neutral color that spans centuries and propels us into the future. Gray is dramatic, sexy and understated. Gray is Provincial, utilitarian and sleek. The complexity that encompasses gray can be overwhelming yet intoxicating. The pendulum swings from warm to cool  and the subtle nuances among grays that are close in saturation require a keen eye to decipher  the nearly indiscernible variations. With 50 + shades of gray to play with, it can be quite daunting to choose a tone. The outline of the rose petals rug above (Mafi International's Golden State Collection)  add shadows and definition to this nature inspired designs. The soft, supple texture of the rugs in this collection is perfect for awaking ones senses.

Abandon Your Inhibitions | 50 shads of Gray Rugs

This canvas inspired design from our Infusion rug collection, illustrates a harmonious approach to merging several hues and tones.The abstract design is straight from the runway. Chanel  and bamboo silk are the perfect luxurious pairing. Even though silk woven rugs look glamorous, the bamboo fiber is  Eco friendly. Designed for sophisticated homes  and modern lifestyles, the borderless designs in this collection have an uniquely soft look and feel that gives them a special appeal. Hand knotted of bamboo silk in a Tibetan weave. Intriguing, universal  and diverse, gray provides the perfect backdrop for accent colors.

Silvers & Silks | 50 shads of Gray Rugs

The lustrous bamboo silk reflects light and infuses a brilliant sheen. Here is another modern approach driven by the masculine and orderly yet vintage Greek key design, while the distressed overlay creates a little chaos. A beautifully symbiotic relationship of harmony and variety. (Bamboo produces the same silky feel as traditional silk, plus it breathes better and feels cool to the touch.).

In time for Valentine's day celebration, lets abandon our inhibition and discover our own "50 shades of GRAY..."
