Have you ever used a car­pet on the wall ver­sus the floor? If yes, did you like the re­sult? If not, do you need ideas? Well, noth­ing beats car­pet for its wealth, tex­tures and pat­terns. For cen­turies we have been us­ing car­pets to add warmth to the space. Wall car­pet de­sign is paramount to the space’s aura, as the spe­cific pat­tern and colour choices am­plify the visual ap­peal. Wall rugs are es­sen­tially wo­ven art and can eas­ily add that ex­tra touch that en­hances the in­te­rior. Though we have al­ways seen them on floors, but plac­ing them on wall works as a beau­ti­ful el­e­ment for wall art. With the pas­sage of time, car­pets on walls re­defi ne the trend - since rugs and car­pets have a tex­ture and an in­nate qual­ity to them as com­pared to any other flat wall-art, they work well on the wall. De­pend­ing on the ac­tual art­work, their weave and tex­ture on the wall can be­come a fo­cal point in the room. Be­sides this, rugs on the wall also serve a func­tional pur­pose of ab­sorb­ing sound and mak­ing the room feel cosy. Adding to this, Aditya Gupta, Founder, The Rug Repub­lic shares, “Hang­ing a car­pet on the wall is in­deed a cre­ative way to lend a room depth and warmth, while con­tribut­ing to the de­sign el­e­ments. Many in­te­rior de­sign­ers, stylists and dec­o­ra­tors are now opt­ing to use rugs on the wall as it is an easy way to have life-size cen­ter­piece in the decor set­ting, and at the same time it comes in handy to de­sign the rest of the room around it.”
