Caucasian Runner Carpets Seamlessly Integrate With Traditional European Decor, Bringing Fascinating Color, Texture and History To Refined Hallway
Outstanding Caucasian tribal carpets have been a treasured part of grand European homes for centuries, prized for their inimitable depth of artistry and the flashes of brilliant, intelligently combined color they bring to any space. This passageway in an 18th century English manor immediately becomes the scene for contemplative art appreciation by the inclusion of two antique Shirvan runners, illuminating with potent highlights of saffron, crimson red and sapphire blue. Though their patterns are dissimilar, there is an immediate affinity that links the two carpets, creating a continuity of shared artisanal craftsmanship that also extends to the handcrafted sculpture and paneling. The carpets’ versatile sizes integrate easily into the often-challenging dimensions presented by historic homes. As well, new and unexpected artistic connections are created: note how the depth of indigo blue within the Gubpa Shirvan interacts with the maritime canvas placed above.
