More About Our Colorful 6 x 9 Rugs
A 6 x 9 area rug is a pleasingly neat size. It’s not so small that it gets lost in the rest of your decorative scheme, but it’s not so large that it takes over. It works well in the living room, in front of the hearth or surrounded by the couch and chairs. It fits tidily under full sized beds, and gives twin bedded rooms a welcoming, cozy floor covering.
Because of its reasonably modest measurements, it’s a great rug to be daring with. We have 6 x 9 rugs in all sorts of bold, modern designs, from striking geometric squares, to large, stylized flowers. Look out for patchwork area rugs in this size, which combine a wonderful array of vivid shades: definitely a talking point.
If you’re thinking about a 9 x 6 area rug, how about trying something truly different and original, and adding some vibrant color to your décor?
Patchwork rugs are extremely popular. Loved for their funky feel, they bring a spark of fun into any room they’re placed in. With many shades to match to, patchwork area rugs suit so many decorative styles, and add a sudden splash of surprise color to neutral or pale décor.
6 x 9 Is A Versatile Rug Size
How are patchwork area rugs made? Simply, pieces of different original rugs are knotted together to create a stunning new whole. That classic patchwork look is achieved by using contrasting shades and patterns. Our craftspeople in Pakistan choose a vibrant variety of samples, and carefully cut them to size, and lay them out so the colors and designs are perfectly composed.
After the design has been finalized, the expert weavers then hand-sew the pieces together using a good, strong stitch, and the rug has a sturdy backing put onto it to make sure it lies flat. The new patchwork rug is overdyed to give it the desired tone; and like all our rugs, it’s finished off with a gentle wash, to make sure it’s as soft as you could wish for. The result is a truly unique rug, repurposed from old designs and given a modern new update.
If you like the idea of a re-used vintage rug, but patchwork’s not for you, search out 6 x 9 overdyed rugs. Like our patchwork collection, these are antique rugs which have been given lots of tender loving care to create a whole new look. The older rug is washed carefully, then the original colors are desaturated. This removes a lot of the color, but leaves clear traces of the designs. The rug then has vegetable dye applied to it to give it its brand new shade. Again, it’s a superb way of breathing new life into an antique area rug – although it’s a complex and delicate process that’s best left to the experts.
