Antique Persian and tribal carpets have a most engaging interplay with contemporary design. When juxtaposed with the clean lines, neutral finishes and floor-to-ceiling glass windows of modern architecture, the human scale and deeply personal character of antique rugs is on full display. The individuality of their artistry becomes intensified and unavoidable: without distraction or clutter, the viewer encounters their archetypal forms directly and intimately. Dynamic effects of saturated color and compositional massing are left to emerge and exert a palpable magnetism, such as in the mid-19th century Caucasian Khila Baku hanging so comfortably alongside modern art while the antique Serapi carpet graces the floor. The outcome is a perfect pairing: like a museum gallery, the individual aesthetic nuances of antique rugs are highlighted, yet the clarity of the architect’s own aesthetic and spatial intentions also become more keenly appreciated.
