Homage to the Square, after Josef Albers Hand Knotted Wool Rug N10873 14'9" × 15'0" $33,000

Josef Albers was a German-born American artist and educator whose work, both in Europe and in the United States, formed the basis of modern art education programs of the twentieth century. This exquisite scholar and genius creator knew that the greatest sophistication lies in simplicity. His famed painting “Homage to the Square” was the inspiration for this chic contemporary rug.

The design of the rug explores the possibilities of a plain square by a subtle and intriguing application of color. A sharp eye will notice at first glance that the rug is not evenly beige but it consists of tone-on-tone squares, from darker on the edges to lighter in the center. Simple but truly timeless, this exceptional composition will easily match any kind of décor, organizing and optically enlarging the space.

On top of iconic design, this modern rug is distinguished by refined workmanship. The pile is soft and luminous while the structure is durable and resilient – all due to careful hand-knotting of the finest wool in accordance with traditional techniques by a skilled artisan. Provided minimum amount of care, this contemporary carpet will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
