Contemporary Tibetan Yellow-Green Handwoven Silk and Wool Rug N11211 4'0" × 6'0" $2,400
While not as famous as other types of Oriental rugs, Tibetan carpets still dazzle with their stunning designs and high quality of weave. In the past Tibetan rugs were available only for Chinese officials, who would often gift them to various important figures, but nowadays anyone can enjoy exotic beauty of those Oriental carpets. Antique Tibetan rugs usually depict religious scenes, but also stylized animals and flowers. Many traditional Tibetan patterns were profoundly influenced by Chinese culture, but contemporary rugs often find inspiration in the West instead of East. Just a quick look can show you how much Tibetan rugs changed throughout last few decades and it is certainly a positive change.
This gorgeous contemporary rug is everything a rug aficionado could ask for. It was hand woven using a luxurious blend of silk and wool, which ensured not only its elegant luster, but also delightful softness and durability of the pile. However, what really draws the attention to this luxurious rug is undoubtedly its design. Central field includes an allover pattern of delicate flowers in different sizes and shapes. The whole is bordered by a very modest frame, which helps to anchor the design in place. Color palette accompanying this design contains mostly shades of yellow-green with a bit of brown and gray to balance everything out.
