Human culture and divergent schools of architecture and design have provided us with a glorious and endless variety of styles and rules by which we clothe and organize our homes and offices, our restaurants and hotels, our public and private spaces. Drawing from the ancient philosophy of the "the middle way" path to freedom and bliss, the Transitional design style pulls inspiration from a myriad of these design styles. Because Transitional area rugs are often the best mix of multiple styles, or a fresh new take on an older one, they rarely go out of style. Enlarge a traditional design motif (as seen in our Brocade area rug) to find something enticingly new. Take a Lotus or a Chrysanthemum and repeat it in an all over border-less pattern for a new twist on the floral motif. One of our most successful and popular designs, ‘Rag Weave’ by Kevin Walz, is transitional on several levels: not only in its linear pattern, but in his use of recycled textiles transformed into elegantly new woven art as inspiration. Another popular transitional style, our Armenian Twilight series, uses the gradations of colors found in the evening sky and transforms this inspiration into a contemporary and timeless reversible rug design. Transitional need not only apply to source of inspiration or design style. An extra dimension is added to the transitional mix when one considers new types of materials and constructions for hand knotted production. Choose from the more casual and textural high pile or go with the more refined, smooth and formal low pile. Choose Wool or Silk. Made in Nepal or Armenia. Pile carpet or flat weave. Furniture of the Mission, Shaker, or Asian variety compliments a transitional design because of the clean lines and simple design. In this category you will see rug designs influenced by these ideas. In an era that seems to celebrate extremes, Transitional style area rugs find pleasant and pleasurable compromises. In this category we offer area rugs that allow us to be more diplomatic with our desires and to marry what might seem polar opposites. Welcome to the category of the eclectic, a simple equation that endeavors to find balance. Area rugs are often the bridges that unite the familiar with the fresh. Many of us find ourselves wanting the best of several different styles combined in a fluid way that brings harmony to our interior spaces. Carpets in this section make it easier to enjoy an array of furnishings and objects with a tailored yet dynamic vibe. Creating a Transitional look is guided by a vision of simplicity, straight lines, possibly seasoned with curves, tones not too warm or cold, nor too modern or traditional, more in the direction of casual comfort with a dose of formality. Find happiness in the middle and browse our inventory of transitional area rugs at the Tufenkian Outlet.
