(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("Spring/Summer 2019 Print Catalog, p.9")Uncovering superb examples of the elite Bakshaish style for our ever-widening group of clients who relish them is a particularly ambitious challenge. Thus, we proudly present this unabashedly spirited carpet with its astonishing cornflower blue field. Bakshaish carpets are often chosen for a curated home setting and it is easy to imagine the enrapturing impact that this singular piece might have as the foundation for a private gallery of paintings or sculpture. The grand scale of its magical, evocative geometric field pattern is masterfully balanced by an exceedingly dexterous stylized floral repeat in the wide border. Underscoring the celebratory nature of this large carpet is its delightful palette of lively midtones. Learn About This Rug Type
