Antique Oushak Runner BB6492
Antique Oushak Runner Description:
Turkish oushak rugs are floor covering that use a particular set of designs, called by convention after the town of Uşak – one of the largest cities in Western Anatolia, which from the early days of the ottoman Empire to the first half of the 20th century was a major center of antique rug production. This antique Oushak runner is a fantastic example of the refined Turkish craftsmanship, suitable for staircases, corridors as well as transitional and ample rooms. Its main field carries a medallion-based, geometric design with botanical motifs, including the characteristic ‘paisley’, in Turkey also known as ‘buta’.
The oriental pattern is enclosed within a series of equally compelling borders matching the overall spirit of the rug. The color palette is balanced and unobtrusive, with predominance of beige residing on the background, and subtle tones of aquamarine and taupe finished with a warm brown lining. The antique Turkish rug was masterfully hand-knotted of the finest wool in the centuries-old weaving techniques by a skilled artisan, which allowed it to survive until this day without any signs of blemish. It will easily match a wide variety of contemporary interior décors, bringing in the chic and warmth of the Oriental craft.
