Nourison Somerset Traditional, Contemporary, Transitional Area Rugs Review

Updated on January 13, 2015

Nourison Somerset

When it comes to design, Nourison Somerset stands out as a true master collection: featuring over fifty patterns, it represents geographical areas from Persia to New World, and aesthetic trends from antique oriental to modern abstract. What Momeni spread across their New Wave and Harmony lines, Nourison knit into a single eclectic collection of rugs – a bold modern approach that goes in line with brand philosophy.

Unlike Nourison 2000, Somerset consists of powerloomed (machine made) carpets made from a synthetic material known as Opulon (a fifty-fifty combination of acrylic and polypropylene). The material and the weaving technique lower the costs, rendering the rugs suitable for a wider range of utility purposes.

Somerset rugs come in rectangular and round shapes, and display a palette of beige, ivory, brown, burgundy, mocha, khaki, green, peach, blue, and other colors. Abstract linear designs combine several tones into a multi-colored grid.

Among the most popular modern motifs in today's flooring industry has been the botanical transitional. It consist of loosely spreading vines and blooms, usually large and expressive, sometimes vaguely limited by a border, and organized into broadly symmetrical compositions. Nourison Somerset contains several rugs created according to this classic scheme – an important point in this weave is that all the flowers are real, as opposed to the highly stylized or outright fantastical florals of traditional Persian rugs.

Indeed, more antique oriented variations dispense with realism in favor of orderly winding vines (these items also include a border). We think that each of these design trends has its own charms, and will suit different kinds of interiors.


Several Nourison Somerset rugs display abstract patterns: differently colored thick lines that sometimes transform into recognizable geometrical shapes. Interestingly, the visuals still bear resemblance to classic handmade Gabbeh weaves.

Not yet as bold as Nourison Parallels and Dimensions, where the lines and the circles begin to rock and roll, these carpets offer a quiet, “entry-level” abstract imagery for customers willing to experiment without extra risks.
