Extraordinary clarity of color and composition is the hallmark of this superb Gendje runner carpet from the far reaches of the rugged Caucasus range. A memorable bright sapphire blue field is the stage for an incredibly compelling assortment of octagonal rosettes, harmoniously integrated into a continually varied allover design. Of equal weight are the carefully crafted and perfectly balanced borders, with a one-of-a-kind ivory main band that introduces multicolored triangular facets abstracted in a strikingly minimalist way. Vivid lemon yellow and rich emerald green are used in welcome profusion.
