Our Minimalist Area Rug is the backdrop for this new palette

Area rug Minimal Suiting Moodboard Talk Carpet

We launched Talk Carpet back in 2016. In the beginning, we would put together clothing inspired by each collection. This was a way to show how much of our inspiration for patterns, colors, and textures came from fashion. Today, we have broadened our horizons and draw inspiration from more than just fashion. We take inspiration from people, places, and the latest trends.

Fashion is something that can change a lot in a decade. While some trends go away for good, others come back when you least expect them. Men’s fashion, in particular, has had many changes. Before the 1940s, it used to be very monochrome with pinstripe suits, white shirts, and leather shoes. However, the 60s changed everything and introduced bright colors and various patterns. In the 90s, goth fashion made its way to the mainstream with leather jackets, distressed baggy pants, and snapbacks. Today, we see a variety of fashion from past decades mixed with new trends from today.

Sometimes, taking a moment to go back to the classic fashion from the past is a great way to find inspiration. By doing so, we created a minimalist area rug to bring the paradox that makes minimalism modern yet classic. The Una Micro collection features budget-friendly flatweave carpets in a variety of colors. The main inspiration for this collection was minimal Scandinavian elegance.

We created a material board with this beautiful minimalist area rug and minimalist men’s fashion in mind. We decided to include Twine Colour by ege carpets and Fanwall Custom Sport Wall by Stikwood to include some unique patterns in keeping with the minimalist theme. Additionally, we added darker muted colors like Clad Celliant by Designtex, Zellige Noir by Tabarka Studio, and Smoky Forest by Dunn-Edwards Paints to pull everything together.

Talk Carpet’s new rug shop is an excellent option if you want to add something unique to your next project. We offer the best commercial-grade area rugs made from recycled nylon to wool-nylon mix.  All of our broadloom patterns can be made into areas rugs so the sky is the limit design-wise.  You can also visualize any rug online or get samples to see which option best fits your client’s wants and needs. We have a standard lead time of ten weeks, including shipping. Contact us if you want to learn more about the rug shop or get your minimalist area rug.

Sitting right next to Pompidou in Paris is Atelier Brancusi. This place is a reconstruction of the studio of renowned Romanian-born artist Constantin Brancusi. In the atelier, there are 137 sculptures, 87 bases, 41 drawings, two paintings, and more than 1600 grass photographic plates and prints by the artist.

Brancusi died in 1957, leaving behind a lot of his work in his studio, which consisted of 11 joined studios. The Romanian artist would break down walls to adjoin studios and create various environments to exhibit his work. He considered the relationship between sculptures and the space they occupied to be of crucial importance.

In 1997, the Atelier Brancusi as we know it today opened its doors on the esplanade of the Center Pompidou. So much of Brancusi’s work is on display at the atelier, giving you an idea of how much the artist put into the world. There are wood and plaster sculptures, bronze colonnades, animal shapes, and photographic studies. It is a beautiful and inspiring place to visit.

Inspired by the stone and natural textures of Brancusi’s work, we recolored the Stone Surface carpet. This is part of the nature collection by ege carpets, which takes inspiration from forests, deserts, and oceans. This light recolor of the carpet allows you to bring a textured palette to your next interior design project.

We created a material board that focuses on a textured palette with the atelier colors and the recolored carpet in mind. We included dark woods like Texas Mesquite 83000 and Artisanal Hardwoods. Keeping the dark brown theme, we also included different textured textiles like Artisan Textured Finishes by CopperSmith, Basketcase by Cortina Leathers, Lafayette Velvet by Opuzen, and Chesney by Valley Forge Fabrics. Additionally, we decided to bring some lighter tones of cream and white by adding Cove, True Terrazzo, Concrete Look Porcelain Paver, and Passion. To tie in the soft colors with the dark ones, we included mid-toned neutral paints like Crewel Tan by Sherwin-Williams and Mesa Tan by Dunn-Edwards Paints.

If you like our textured palette, you might be interested in our Easy Recolor Program. We used this to recolor our Stone Surface carpet, enabling us to source the perfect backdrop for our textured palette. Using our online tool, you can do the same. Choose from any of our collections and recolor them to match any interior. You can then visualize the carpet before ordering physical carpet samples. You’ll receive your samples within three business days at an affordable price. Contact us if you want to learn more.
