In addition to traditional African patterns, new patterns are being designed by artists and artisans. The Day Rug by AphroChic (https://www.aphrochic.com/) is one such example. The dark blue shade is reflective of indigo design that can be found throughout West Africa, while the pattern is inspired by the designs of the famed ante-bellum, African American craftsman, Thomas Day. The print with a mix of lines and circles feels similar to many of the geometric prints found in traditional indigo print fabrics from the Bamana people of Mali and other West African cultures.
A luxurious rug in the bathroom makes the space extra delightful for bare toes. This modern space keeps the rest of the room's style streamlined with a glass walk-in shower, vessel sink and floating vanity.
This hallway continues the modern design of this apartment. The floor length mirror helps to reflect the white walls and ambient lighting that makes the space look clean and bright, while wood accents in the space add color and warmth. The patterned rug on the floor helps to give the area texture and dimension, while maintaining a sleek, modern look.
