Samarkand Sandy Beige, Carmine Red & Brown Handwoven Wool Rug BB6978 3'9" × 6'3" $6,000
Although its name translates harshly as “stone fort”, Samarkand is a weaving center that has given life to many outstanding and graceful creations which captured the attention of collectors and designers around the world. This vintage rug is a paragon of the remarkable Samarkand craftsmanship that exhibits uniqueness, diversity and quality of textiles coming from the oasis town.
The main field carrying an allover geometric pattern is enclosed within borders adorned with architectural and floral motifs exuding both Asian and Middle-Eastern vibes. The color palette of the vintage Samarkand rug flaunts warm earthy tones – sandy beige, carmine red and brown – that will easily match a wide variety of modern interior arrangements. Such a composition is not too timid nor bold, just perfect for all connoisseurs of timeless design.
Such versatile and balanced composition will most certainly match a wide array of interior décors, from classic to contemporary. The enchanting design is followed by a masterful execution – the vintage Samarkand rug was meticulously hand-knotted of the first-rate wool according to traditional oriental techniques. If properly maintained, the carpet will serve its owners for generations, as it already has for over 60 years without any signs of wear.
