Mid-20th Century Blue Striped Indian Dhurrie Handmade Cotton Rug BB6536 12'6" × 15'3" $26,000
From where comes the beauty of vintage Indian Dhurrie rugs? Some people would say that it is hidden in their stunning patterns and rich color palettes, however, this piece proves that sometimes simplicity can be more eye-catching than opulence. While the area rug was woven in the 1950’s it displays a surprisingly modern approach to the design – undoubtedly a sign of its weaver’s genius.
The pattern is constructed of straight stripes, which reach from one end of the antique rug to the other with no frame present. Small irregularities in the pattern are a proof that it was indeed handmade, making it a truly unique piece. The simplicity was also preserved in the choice of color palette of this vintage carpet. Composed of cool shades of blue, from almost gray to deep navy, it helps to highlight the minimalist beauty of the pattern without losing its own composed aura. The size of this piece, 12’6″ × 15’3″ (381 × 465 cm), makes it a great choice for spacious interiors.
