Blending Antique with Chic: On Display in our D&D Showroom

Combining our love of antique textiles with our passion for bespoke contemporary design, we’ve put together a collection of contemporary carpets boasting modern interpretations of traditional oriental motifs in our Manhattan D&D showroom.

All gorgeous and unique in their own right, these pieces pair the soulful history of East and Central Asian weaving with nouvelle flourish. The result is a collection that manages to be both edgy and distinguished. Take a peek:

This Deco Dots runner presents a mesmerizing field of earth-toned buttons that hint at traditional medallion patterning.
Depictions of fruit and flora run throughout the aesthetic history of Samarkand carpets. This is a bold reinvention, stripped down to just two colors and clean lines, but with a tight multiplicity of patterning that seems almost digital in its precision.
This lovely contemporary Khotan rug provides a clean, geometric take on traditional Khotan medallions.
A pretty, wheat-and-fallow Samarkand that’s utterly subtle with a border that just about blends with its inner, abstract patchwork. The checkerboard of organic and geometric shapes suggests an abstract garden.

The rugs are on display now at 979 3rd Ave, suite 625.  Stop by and say hello!
