more info...Apple Rugs presents a huge selection of red rugs online in all styles from contemporary designer lines to traditional pattern rugs. A red rug is a very popular choice today, and has been a classic choice since ancient times. Rich reds feature in modern wool and other fibre rugs, and in luxurious long pile shaggy rugs. Red shades vary from deep burgundy and wine reds to softer, earthier terracotta reds. Also included in this section are orange rugs and pink rugs. For traditional rugs, the deep burgundy reds and Afghan red have a long tradition in classic designs, often combined with softer, lighter colours against the overall red background.
Red, Terracotta, Burgundy, Pink and Orange RugsContemporary red rugs tend to be rich reds, near a burgundy or other wine colour, while some of these tones are also termed berry reds. Amongst the lighter reds, terracotta and rust colours, which have hints of brown in them, have been very popular.
Orange rugs are a more specialist colour and require careful consideration if you are trying to match with other orange fabrics in the room. Oddly enough, colour research has shown that as people getting older, they tend to like orange less.
Pink rugs can be hard to find. Many customers want a real "girlie" or "lipstick" pink, but rugmakers have found this hard to replicate, especially in wool rugs which favour more natural colours. Synthetic fibre rugs produce a better "lipstick pink," while silky texture of a sheepskin and sheepkin dyes also reproduce this kind of pink well.
Amongst traditional rugs, the red you will most often see is again a deep, burgundy red, either produced from natural vegetable dyes in authentic handmade originals, or by newer chemical dyes that also produce a fine effect. Afghan red is one popular term for this kind of deep red. Some traditional rugs also come in a soft pink, often nearer a light rose colour, and are often referred to as rose pink rugs.
