Try A Southwest Table Runner For Wonderful Ranch Style Decorating

Dec 31, 2007
A southwest table runner is an excellent way to create that popular western, rustic or Native American feel in your home decor. Because of their wide versatility, many designers are choosing to buy their southwest table runner online. Used as western accents and also southwestern accessories, in breakfast nooks or when decorating a cabin or log home with a rustic or western theme, southwestern table runners give your home warmth and a beautiful authentic Native American look. When looking for American Indian style table runners, you will find a wide variety making it simple to find a western table runner and you will no doubt want to add a few of the most popular and sought-after runners or table rugs in your home decor. These table runners have a rich history that has evolved over time and can truly be considered as great works of art.

Some of the most popular southwestern and western table runners, in Native patterns, each different runner mixes beautiful colors and characters, symbolizing spirituality or depictions of historical events and a variation of colors and designs.

Not only is a southwest table runner enjoyed for its classic beauty, but the skill and hard work involved in making Native table runners is also greatly appreciated. The makers of hand woven table runners must be very skilled and start the runner making process by kneeling in front of a vertical wooden-framed loom. The designs are then placed by using a shuttle to weave different colored yarn together, making geometric characters and designs. Originally, Navajo rugs as well as those of some other Southwest Indian tribes were made of hand spun cotton thread. However, once the wool of domestic sheep was introduced to the region by the Spanish settlers, the people mainly used wool to create their colorful rugs, table runners and other traditional weaving.

Today, many of the modern southwest table runners come from areas where Spanish and Native American histories come together to create beautiful designs. Southwestern table runners, with their natural earth tone colors and one-of-a-kind southwestern designs make them perfect for rustic home decorating. If you are searching for great southwestern decor, you will probably purchase from American companies or directly from Native American weavers. Buying western table runners from Navajo or other American Indian tribes not only allows you the satisfaction of owning a southwest table runner that is made by Indians but also helps to support the Native American heritage of rug making, and the people who themselves sell their rugs, runners, and Native American art.

The table runner style you purchase will greatly depend on what your tastes are and what kind of decorating you decide on. You will find that a southwest table runner is an excellent southwestern accent when combined with rustic or western home furnishings. Whether you are changing your home decor or decorating an entire home using a rustic theme, you will find many designs and colors available to choose from. Among these options you will be able to choose from Zapotec runners with no two alike, to southwest table runners with western style. Designers love hand woven wool table runners because of the rich colors and textures. Whatever your style and whatever your home decor needs, you will no doubt enjoy the richness of color and warmth brought to life in your home by decorating with a southwest table runner.
