DALLAS -- Feizy Rugs hosted a special pre-Galentine's Day Instagram Live event that kicked off its new For the Love of Design series that will focus on design trends and themes. The first video celebrated a special pre-Valentine's Day themed area rug vignette highlighting pink area rugs..

Galentine's Day, celebrated on February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day, honors close (gal) friends, and Feizy's Leighton Lloyd, brand manager, and Callie Maggee, rug designer, teamed up in a video to showcase some of their favorite pink area rugs and to highlight top rug trends -- and also toast their friendship.

The event on Feb. 11, was the first installment of Feizy's for the Love of Design, a series of Instagram Live video presentations of the duo's top rugs and trends. The Galentine's vignette highlighted the trending pinks, transitional designs in contemporary color palettes and the layered rug look.

Maggee's favorite pink-inflected area rug is the hand-knotted Breel in berry (6348F), a luxurious hand-knotted wool and raw silk construction.

Feizy's hand-knotted Breel in berry (6348F), crafted of a luxurious, plush wool and raw silk, features large striations and contemporary color combinations.

"On trend yet timeless the Breel collection has a textural fashion sensibility in a luminous raw-silk shag construction," Maggee explains of her front-runner. "Each hand-knotted masterpiece marries a luxe sheen with soft hues inviting you in to experience each design. The hi-low texture and shaggy pile made of silk, striated arger stripes as a contemporary pattern

Leighton, on the other hand, selected a more adventurous design, saying "I love a bold color!" She selected Feizy's Mariell, hand-knotted of 100 percent premium wool with ornamental motifs and adventurous colorways. "What a lot of our clients are asking for and what's trending is this traditional or transitional design but in updated trend-forward color palette, such as this sunset palette [in Mariell 6702F in pink], and what I really like with a bold color is to pair it with something a little more neutral."

Leighton teams up Mariell 6702F in pink with Lorrain (8571F in blush), a loop tufted rug made of 100 percent wool and featuring a geometric motif in pink on an ivory ground. "[Lorrain] has more a tie-dye effect and comes in rounds and runners --when you don't want your rugs all matchy-matchy, you could have [Marielle] in your living room and then [Lorraine] in a round under your dining room table to have a nice juxtaposition of not only color and texture but also design as well -- that is my favorite [trend] right now, a mixing of designs, mixing a little bit of contemporary and transitional together."

Feizy's Lorrain 8571F in blush offers a loop tufted construction of 100 percent wool and tie-dye pink motif.
An emerging trend that is really beginning to take off is layering area rugs. Maggee explained, with the layering trend, "we see a lot of a very neutral simple, maybe woven jute or sisal, base, and people put a more patterned rug on top." But Maggee and Lloyd instead illustrated the trend with the machine-made Armont 3946F in pink as a base and a shaped Luxe Velour on top.

The machine-made Armont 3946F by Feizy features an all-over motif in subtle palette of pinks, red and orange.
"This is a nice example of how you can really mix it up," said Maggee of the look. "On the bottom we have one of our machine-made Armants and it has these nice subtle abrash tones of the purples, its almost more of a reddish pink and mixture of the red and orange. It's an allover pattern so you aren't getting anything that is too statement --it's a little more subtle but still [has] really nice coloration. We've paired it with this sort of blush/mauve-y plush Luxe Velour rug that is so soft and a luxurious shag in a shape. So having the pattern on the bottom and the solid on the top, is a nice way to mix it up and make it a little more organic and fun."

Added Lloyd, "I love this layering look and I really think we are going to see a lot of this in the home decor arena."
