Is Your Living Room Ready for the Pop Art Rug Comeback?
From those iconic Campbell’s Soup cans to the ubiquitous dot-work comic-book prints, pop art has always been a one-of-a-kind aesthetic. But it’s not all about the artwork; pop art also lends itself to countless other forms of media – including pop arts rugs. And it seems that they’re set for a comeback in 2016, so if you’ve never explored how pop art rugs could brighten up your home, this article is for you.
The anatomy of a pop art rug
Let’s begin at the beginning: what makes a pop art rug… a pop art rug? Well, there are really two factors that really define a rug of this kind: the colour and – perhaps more importantly – the design of the pattern itself. If you’ve seen examples of pop art from the late 50s and 60s before, you’ll probably already have some idea of what to expect: round-cornered geometry with a layered texture, combined with vibrant colour choices. This aesthetic is exactly what you’ll find with pop art rugs, more specifically our selection of pop art rugs by Arte Espina.
Soft, resilient, colourful
As one of our bestsellers, it’s no surprise that the pop art rugs we stock are made from durable materials and designed to last. These pieces are hand-tufted for that personal touch, and the fabric itself is 100% Espirelle – a one-of-a-kind material that’s as soft as it is resilient. On top of that, Espirelle is one of the most colourfast fabrics used to produce rugs today, so there’ll be no risk of the vibrancy fading over the years. If you’ve been looking to explore the world of pop art rugs, the Arte Espina pop art rug range is a fantastic place to start.
