More About High Pile Rugs

Luxuriate with High Pile Rugs

In interior design, deep pile rugs are celebrated for their ability to transform a space into a haven of elegance and coziness. The lush fibers create a soft and inviting atmosphere, inviting people to sink their feet into a world of comfort. This aesthetic is not just about visual appeal but also sensory pleasure of running one's fingers or toes through a deep pile.

Some of the world's original and most loved high pile rugs originate in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco and in Central Asia where long piled textiles provided insulation against cold winds. In village life, rugs were used not only as floor coverings, but wall hangings and bedding. These rugs were often woven in bright colors. 

The brilliant colors of village rugs can bring wonderful energy to eclectic modern spaces. For a quieter sensibility, many white and neutral options are available. And don’t overlook long pile as a tool for literally quieting a space. Thick, dense piles can also absorb sound, reduce echo and dampen noise for the quiet serenity we all crave at the end of a long day.   

Today, high pile rugs have become a staple of interior design signaling a convergence of luxury and comfort. For sumptuous bedrooms, living rooms, or lounge spaces, high pile rugs are a first pick.
