Would you believe me if I said rugs change colors? Depending on the pile(the grain) of the rug you will see different colors. When looking into the pile, against the grain, you will see the true colors of the rug. This is also the darker side of the rug. When looking with the pile, with the grain, you will see muted colors of the rug. This isn’t a bad thing though! This is referred to as the lighter side of the rug. We can help you decide which direction looks best for your room!
