Survival of the Fashion Fittest

Survival of the Fashion Fittest

Graceful Evolution.  When thinking about fashion or home fashion and its evolutionary spirit, one may notice that the fashion industry has all of the defining elements of a truly evolutionary scheme.  The crux of it is that ‘fashion organisms’, i.e., the designers, editors, art directors, retailers, bloggers and models, emerge through the natural selection of small, inherited variations that bump up their ability to compete, survive and sustain their creative niches.  The fashion world provides an evolutionary outlet for artistic creation.  It serves as a kind of structural template for reflecting and expressing identity.  As in nature, the blending of the classic with the new will always be at the core of graceful evolution.

Simplifying Your Life

Simplifying Your Life

Are you a right-brained or left-brained individual?  Are you more of a creative type or methodical type of personality?   Which side of your brain is dominant and which side is your “secondary” brain?  The dichotomy of the human brain is fascinating and affects every aspect of our lives.  It even manifests in a collective-conscious way, evident in evolving opinions and tastes throughout the eras, including, for example, the notion by some that deep floral colors no longer hold the same currency they once enjoyed in our contemporary world.  It’s a matter of personal taste, of course, but this is where we, at Summit Rug, come in to help you make the ultimate decision of bringing beauty and elegance to your home and your floors.

 

 

Moroccan & Organic Collection

Moroccan & Organic Collection

Pale and interesting, the Moroccan carpet is a traditionally made rug by the Berber Tribes of the North-Eastern Middle Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Originally used as bedding in the winter, these handmade, double-knot, undyed and dyed carpets are 100% wool. Usually heavy cream or white pile with geometric diamond designs, each one is unique and timeless.  The lush feel is a defining reason why Moroccan rugs are an excellent choice for your home.  They are uber soft, organic, fresh and accent any vintage motif beautifully.

Off The Runway & Into Your Home

Off The Runway & Into Your Home

Designing for fashion and designing for the home have many similarities.  Each one contains the same elements: color, texture, pattern and silhouette. Bringing fashion trends into the home from the runway has never been easier.   This Winter’s fashion collection of must-have items parallel those for Spring 2015.   Light, flirty, fresh gingham designs in color schemes of light blues and creamy whites also work well on your floors to create the perfect seaside nautical theme for the solarium off your patio or pool, not to mention for your beach house.
