Samarkand Rug N11627 17'2" × 21'0" $55,000
Samarkand, one of the oldest inhabited cities in Central Asia translated as “Stone Fort”, is home to magnificent rugs that for years have been the apple of the eye of collectors and tastemakers around the world. This modern rug made in a distinct Samarkand style greatly reflects the refined craftsmanship of the oasis town. Its main field is covered in an allover detailed pattern of pomegranates which are the oriental symbol of fertility and prosperity. The message of affluence is enclosed within a truly imposing and equally compelling series of borders adorned with geometric motifs and flower heads. The rich composition is supported by an extremely elegant color palette combining the muted tone of teal with dark slate gray and beige. In addition to charming appearance, the Samarkand-inspired rug is distinguished by impeccable execution. Hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with traditional weaving techniques, the carpet enchants with its soft and durable pile that, if properly maintained, will serve its owners for generations. This unique vintage Samarkand rug will easily match a wide variety of interior arrangements, bringing in the magic and recherché appeal of oriental artistry.
