Medallion rugs versus All Over Pattern rugs

Choosing a rug design can be quite cumbersome. In today’s fast paced world, picking a rug for your space should be the least of one’s problems. However, it is important to know what kind of carpet would one want to pick to adorn his or her living space. A traditional rug can be usually be categorized in two types. On one hand, there are rugs with a medallion in the center of the piece that is generally a large floral pattern.  On the other hand, there are other types of pieces that have an all over floral or geometrical pattern. There are various factors to consider as deciding what kind of rug should one go in for.

Medallion Rug:

A medallion is also know as the centerpiece of the rug and is a big motif design pattern placed right in the center of the rug. When choosing a rug with a medallion pattern, it is highly recommended not to place a table on top of it. Placing any piece of furniture right in the center of the carpet not only covers or hides the medallion design but also ruins the whole look of the room.

It is best to place furniture like a table, a decorative piece etc. on the sides or corners of the rug. This way the middle design is visible and the look of the entire room is also enhanced.  Some experts are of the notion that the medallion designs stems from religious nature of the craftsman or weavers. It seems that their inspiration probably came from domes of the mosques or its artwork.

All over Pattern Rugs

All over Pattern rugs are those types of carpets that do not have a medallion in the center of the piece. Such rugs have an all over running pattern and can either be geometrical or floral. These rugs are formed by repetition of the same motif. The design is woven by nomadic weavers and the motif of a carpet can be used to determine the particular tribe, or place of origin.

Experts highly suggest placing a piece of furniture when placing a rug with an all over pattern and without a medallion. Placement of such furniture or decorative items in the center of the rug, break the monotony of the running design pattern of the rug and also create more room to place other items on the four corners around it. In such rugs, all parts of pattern are interconnected and usually drawn without the designer’s hand being lifted.

Hence, though it is an individualistic choice to pick a rug with or without a medallion, it is highly suggested to choose one according to the look of the room and place the furniture accordingly.
