(Connoisseur-Caliber) (“Fall/Winter New Arrivals Event“) An extraordinary fluency with the vocabulary of naturally-inspired motifs informs the spectacularly accomplished vision of this superb Bashaish Camelhair “Tree of Life” carpet. Its iteration of this cherished arboreal format is completely unique: set within an allover lattice, individual diamonds alternate between two entirely different presentations. Naïve, larger scale blossoming trees use open space as an essential part of the design. As counterpoint, brilliantly deconstructed pinpoint diamonds suggest aspen-like leaves shimmering in the breeze. When paired with exquisitely time-softened camel, sapphire blue, and terracotta, the sense of movement is enrapturing. Learn About This Rug Type
