Southwest themed rugs can include a wide variety of images, from the rugged landscape to the Native Americans and Anasazi cultures from that area. The open plains and the rustic aesthetic can make these unique south western themed rugs the perfect addition to
any southwest or western design, and you can show your love or interest for the area with some high quality designs. Many people only think of the harsh deserts of the region when they imagine what it’s like in the southwest, but the truth is that there is so much more to the area's landscape, and culture.
The plateaus, the cacti and the tumbleweeds are what a lot of people expect from the southwest landscape, but even these images lead to a huge variety. Use a picture of a lone plateau in the dessert to conjure up impressions of solidarity and strength, or use a rug design filled with color red rock or deep blue waters to complement the design theme in any room.
There are artists representation of the Native Americans who populated this region as well as pictures of some of the indigenous animals. If you’re looking for something a little more light hearted, the kokopelli pictures can add some playfulness to the overall look of the room. The ancient Pueblo peoples built huge cities in this region, and the remnants of those buildings make a great image for your home décor. Or you can create an area rug that features a setting sun turning the sky a deep, warm red, which only looks brighter against the dark silhouettes of the cactus plants. Whether you’re interested in the geometric and abstract designs or pictures of the different cultures from the area, take a look at these images and find that one that is right for you.
