The immersive artistry of a spectacular 160-year-old Laver Kirman carpet profoundly enhances the carefully orchestrated elements of this contemplative sitting area in a contemporary design home. The harmonious craft-dyed hues of parchment, celadon and claret intensify under natural light from circular skylight and window, continually offering new tones as the day progresses. When the sun sets, flickering firelight from the custom designed woodstove reveals entirely different nuances within the carpet’s intricate botanical design, to be savored at length over the course of an evening from the casual comfort of an overstuffed leather chair. Blonde wood paneling and beige ceramic tiles are given new resonance, taking on a heightened character alongside the exquisite time-softened patina of the masterful Court weaving, the result of their shared use of natural materials. Its unaffected expression of balance and harmony ensures the rug is immediately compatible within the adventurous modern minimalist aesthetic of this LEED certified home, just as it would be in a more traditional setting.
