Once was custom to place pale coloured carpet on dark floors and vice versa. This habit, that gave immediate emphasis to the carpet, guaranteed an extreme effect.

Nowadays trend is different: the carpet should exalt the beauty and the harmony of the space. So, is it possible, for example, put a soft coloured carpet on a pale flooring.

In this way, is possible to admire the carpet little by time.

This effect is exalted in carpet painted with vegetable dye: the polished and delicate colours pleasantly join to the ambient hue giving life to a well-proportioned and charming space.
