Modern Home Design Attains Incredible Impact Through The Uniquely Collaborative Energy of Antique Area Rugs
Contemporary design and art-level Caucasian and Persian geometric rugs share an affinity that is dramatically expressed in passageways, where the strikingly potent color of multiple rugs and their earthy ambiance are more unmistakable viewed in concert. Here, the lofty white walls and blonde hardwoods provide “less is better” aesthetic that quietly emphasizes the electric exuberance of the rugs. The Karaja in the foreground fully explores mint and emerald green in its potent, unaffected design, while the Bijar in background showcases the impressive versatility of multi-medallion 19th-century pieces for hallway display. When combined with virtuoso art in other media, the effect is transformative: this collector’s exceptional John Bracken collages have been especially chosen to hang above these weavings. Though entirely different in material and era, an equally evocative Simon Gaiger sculpture in steel shares an easy, enrapturing affinity with the rugs that surround it.
