Rare Tribal Carpet With Exquisite Cane Design Provides Immersive Foundation For An Art-Filled Passageway
Antique kelege, or corridor carpet, pieces offer uniquely versatile dimensions that are perfectly suited for the wide halls and galleries often found in signature homes. Here an art-savvy collector has used a strikingly graphic Senneh carpet as the foundation around which many other expressive works are impressively displayed. Note the virtuosity of contrasts the homeowner achieves: the mesmerizing axial orientation of the rhythmic “Cane” design brings out other geometries and textures, such as the sphericity of the stone sculpture, tonal values of canvases, and the natural organic texture of the floorboards and bureau. Like the other artwork, it benefits from both direct and indirect lighting, where the rich natural ivory and terracotta colors come alive.
