Rendering of the Month: Perak III
The bold, edgy graphic of W77227-Perak III has been a favorite of mine since it launched back in our Solstice Collection. With its torn, live edges, and the bright saturated colors, how could you not fall in love? For November’s rendering of the month, I thought I’d try to appeal (mostly) to a more subdued audience and turn this gorgeous, loud carpet, into something that might be a bit more useable in some quieter spaces. Enjoy!
In this deconstructed alternate design, I removed a good majority of the original shapes, leaving just a few to sporadically move your eye around the rug. Rich, burnt sienna is really speaking to me lately, so I used that hue as the focal accent color, allowing some light neutral shades to carry the rest of the pattern. Using the outline of one of the jagged forms, I envision some portions of the design to be an interesting undertufted accent.
As a darker, more dramatic contrast to the previous design, I deepened the colorway, in grey and brown tones. I scaled up the pattern and stretched it a bit horizontally to emphasize the flow across the width. Portions of this pattern could exist as undertufted texture, and other areas could be solid cut pile.
…Because I love color and I can’t resist. 🙂 For the design, I (dramatically) scaled up the pattern vertically, and used a bright saturated teal and yellow palette.
