(Connoisseur-Caliber) ("New Arrivals Gallery") An entirely unexpectedly subtle rendition of the “Tree of Life” rug pattern, this profoundly atmospheric piece offers sublime, understated coloration, playing off the natural neutrality of camelhair to create this earthy, yet gossamer visage. Glowing with a deep patina, a most nuanced selection of exquisite Bakshaish blues are surrounded by khaki, aged persimmon, and ochre, all understating the beloved, age-old cypress and willow tree compartments of the field and the rosette and oak leave border meander pattern. This carpet's immersive, highly personal aesthetic is a one-of-a-kind example of the this style’s unpredictable expressiveness. Its virtually 9-½ x 10-½ dimensions are uncommon and can accommodate a great variety of applications. Learn About This Rug Type
