Samarkand Rug N11612 11'10" × 15'0" $22,000
Although made in the 21st century, this beautiful rug stays true to the abundant and exceptional tradition of Samarkand designs. The oasis town located at the famed Silk Route has given out some of the most intriguing weaving pieces thanks to the combined influences of neighboring cultures, including China, Persia, Turkey, Russia, India and all that came along with the wanderers of the Silk Trail. This enchanting Samarkand rug is an excellent example of this rich variety of themes. Its main field is covered with an allover trellis of stylized medallions with far-eastern spirit, interlinked by delicate flowery vines. This repetitive yet complex pattern is enclosed within a series of highly ornamental borders, where the main one carries bold palmettes and secondary ones are embellished with abstract architectural motifs. The tranquil color palette of sandy beige and indigo is enlivened thanks to delicate touches of pale brick red – such color combination is distinctive of classic Persian carpets. All features of this beautiful Samarkand rug coexist in perfect harmony sending out a soothing vibe. Its firm texture was masterfully hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques by a skilled artisan and these qualities ensure the rug’s ever-lasting quality. Due to its versatility and timeless elegance, this Samarkand rug has a chance to fit into all kinds of contemporary decors.
