Rendering of the Month: Upano
Happy New Year! Let’s kick off 2016 with a new batch of renderings of the month. 🙂
While W76045-Upano was originally designed as a beautiful subtle textural pattern, I decided to play up its graphic potential. I amped up the contrast of the field vs. pattern areas, changed a few of the triangular directions for a more random appeal, scaled up the entire design, and created a colored accent within the pattern to utilize the movement within the rug. To finish it off as a multi-leveled rug, I’d design the thick outlines of triangles at a higher cut pile to differentiate from the field.
Toying with the concept of designing a pattern within a pattern, I removed some elements of the triangular shapes to add a simple interesting factor. This rug could be a textural design with a grid overtuft to break up some of the pattern lines. The field could be gorgeously dimensional with multiple colors of striae running vertically up the length.
On a final note, I scaled the pattern up even more, and used the negative spaces between the striped triangles as an opportunity to add a multi-faceted colored aesthetic. I organized the pattern in a more clean cut formation, keeping the stripes all pointing in a consistent direction, and added a horizontal loop overtuft in a light gold hue to tie together the palette. The use of muted gold, cream, black and white make this an ultra modern rug that would add beautiful contrast in a minimal interior.
