Antique Indian Amritsar Rug BB5022 11'5" × 18'4" $90,000
The history of antique Indian rugs is a fascinating one. Floor coverings were always present in Indian culture, although not in the form that we are familiar with today. Due to the fact that Indian rugs were introduced to the Western customers not so long ago, their designs easily fit into contemporary interior arrangements. Amritsar rugs exhibit a truly unique appeal – they are be perfect for any type of interior. While there are numerous kinds of antique Indian rugs, you can be sure of one thing – all of them will bring in the glamour and recherché charm of Indian craftsmanship straight to your household.
This Amritsar Rug was woven in the early 20th century, circa 1900. Everything in it, from the colors to pattern, has an Oriental charm, characteristic for all Indian rugs. However, some elements of it suggest that it was also inspired by classic European rugs, thus becoming a perfect mix of both. Its symmetrical design is mirrored in both directions, giving this composition a relaxing sense of balance. While geometrical figures seem to dominate, some floral elements also are present. When it comes to the color palette, we receive a fairly modest, yet elegant set of colors. Delicate beiges are accompanied by darker shades of brown and black, with elements of sandy yellow.
The size of this piece, 11’5″ × 18’4″ (348 × 559 cm), while rather large, makes it a great choice for spacious households and offices. The natural elegance of this antique Indian rug is bound to make your interiors look special.
