Whether hand-woven antiques from established and reputable antique and vintage dealers, or found in estate sales, these handmade works of art are beautiful additions to any interior, traditional, spanish colonial, farmhouse and rustic modern, Scandinavian, retro mid-century modern, even contemporary. As well there are a number of fine companies offering beautiful rugs that are handmade abroad including India, Pakistan, Turkey Afghanistan, Iran and various other places. Many of the rugs while they reflect regional traditions including Persian decorative elements and Islamic architecture are made for export and show an admixture of signs, motifs, patterns, and artistic additions.

In no way would one wish to classify these contemporary works of art as “reproductions” or knock offs but rather a continuation of the rich artistic cultures of these amazing designers, weavers and artists. It’s quite amazing to see the creative reworking of multi-cultural motifs, patterns, and framing devices within each design.

If you live in a farmhouse style home or maybe an NYC apartment that has seen better days, add an abstract Moroccan style rug for a layered eclectic look and Bohemian flair. Love the contrast of black painted floors with the cream ground of this beautiful geometric woven carpet.

Here we see a lovely mix of a more traditional rug with an updated office chair, dark walls, industry style unfinished floor, and a farmhouse style desk. Wonderful!

A mix of high modern and traditional has an eclectic feel, and is made bright by the canvas like walls, So gorgeous, one can imagine spending hours here with friends and family, reading a book or catching up over tea…

Richness seems a theme here, the beautiful sheepskin throw, ornate patterns on the rug and pillows, offset by white walls, and the cozy feel of a lived space, books, plants and a reading lamp…

  1. I agree that these rugs are beautiful additions to a home. Not only that, but there can be so many variety of designs that can be used in any kind of space, like how the Moroccan rug was used for an eclectic look. To be honest, I’d be interested in learning more about the patterns that are in the rug, and what their meaning could be in different cultures.
