We all know—and strive to follow—the concept of openness when it comes to outfitting a room: Steer clear of overcrowding; clean-lined furniture keeps a space from feeling cramped; removing the extraneous allows for air, light, and movement.
It turns out, the same principles can apply to floor coverings. Just take it from the latest launch by Revival, purveyors of restored vintage rugs and original, off-the-loom designs alike. Their Superlight Collection—named after Gio Ponti’s Superleggero chair, which famously could be lifted with a finger—was designed with lightness and minimalism in mind, with muted hues drawn from the pinks, blues, and creams of Rajasthani architecture, the company says.
The soft wool rugs have a medium pile and are woven from the sturdy, warm wool of Sarda sheep from the island of Sardinia mixed with Indian wool, all hand-loomed onto a 100 percent cotton foundation.
