Profoundly Harmonious Color of 19th-century Bakshaish Inspires the Modern Decor Choices in this Casual Seating Area
Thanks to the timeless immediacy of its evocative natural colors and engagingly abstracted botanical imagery, this superb antique Bakshaish carpet enhances the fluid contours and direct, clearly expressed forms of this contemporary space. The spacious arrangement of motifs and unassuming balance that are a specialty of this 19th-century village weaving group evokes the comfortable, casual atmosphere this homeowner intended to create with his furnishings and accessories. Warm mocha, soft periwinkle, cobalt are the time-softened tones in the rug that resonate instantly with the abstract canvas in the room, revealing a shared affinity for dynamic color juxtaposition. Note how the astoundingly animated yet subtle abrash striation within the carpet amplifies the nuances of wood grain in the Eames armchair, sideboard and flooring, enhancing their visual interest and reinforcing the sense of organic movement and texture in a way that profoundly enriches and immerses the viewer.
