Oriental textiles and patterns are renowned for their intricate details and gorgeous designing. They usually originate from the sub-continental, Persian, and Turkish cultures and have carved themselves a special niche in the rug genre. However, they can also be used in several other varying formats, and if you want to use them in your homes, here’s how you can do so while blending it with modernism:
1. In couch cushions
One of the easiest ways to emulate a gorgeous oriental vibe in your homes is by using couch cushion covers that feature such patterns. You can easily find them all over the market. If you don’t know what to look for, then you can take inspiration from this image!
2. In the form of carpets
Area rugs and carpets are perhaps the oldest and most widely used format of introducing oriental patterns in your homes. They’re very attractive and are available in both hand-knotted and synthetic forms so homeowners can easily keep to their budget.
3. In the form of wall tiles
These days, the popularity of oriental textures is at its peak. This is why they tend to be spreading in the most unconventional formats. Who knew you could find oriental patterns in wall tiles? But that’s exactly what’s happening these days. You can apply these in your kitchens and other traditional accent wall areas.
4. In the form of bed covers
Bed sheets and covers are usually used to add a contrasting aura in most homes – but you know what? They’re an excellent way to add oriental patterns to your spaces. The intricacy and detail of such patterns comes off really well when surrounded by a mostly modern setting. You can even play with colour contrast – just like the red and greys in this image.
5. All sorts of fabrics
The most efficient form of emulating oriental patterns in your modern homes is by the clever use of textiles. While bed covers and duvets are one aspect, you can also introduce them in the form of table runners, curtains, and couch throws. It totally depends on how much traditional aura you want to emulate in your spaces.
