This hand-knotted classic rug joins the latest additions to the Homage Collection by Rug & Kilim, an ambitious custom-capable encyclopedia of periods recapturing and reinventing an unprecedented range of international styles including Oriental patterns with fresh, European influences. Drawing inspiration from a variety of motifs including the chest, cloudband, Bereket, and serrated leaves—the latter of which exemplify a joyful variation of colors alongside the floral motifs in the meandering border patterns—this classic rug’s play of luminous gold and blue hues complements a more subtle approach to shabby-chic, distressed aesthetic this piece enjoys; an ideal representation of the comfortable wash taken by our long-standing partner loom in India. The unique subtlety of the brighter red hues lends a sense of movement to the more regal symmetry this 8×10 offers as well.
About the Collection: About the Collection: The Homage Collection has become one of Rug & Kilim’s most encompassing, diverse archives of periods and styles never seen for such an approachable price and soothing, refined look. Nearing more than 100 designs and numerous full-sized stock pieces and samples available with this exceptional colorway selection, Josh sees the representations of traditional, transitional, modern impressionism, abstract, and even as far as American hook rugs in the collection as some of the best of each category in his experience.
Likewise seeing the line as an encyclopedia of designs and a handbook for everyday use at very reasonable prices, our team is particularly proud of the custom service, fast delivery, and consistent production this new archive offers. Even seen as a natural complement to the aesthetic of our respected Scandinavian Collection, pieces in the Homage collection have been washed to achieve a comfortable look of distressed, chic aesthetic and texture—though clients are certainly welcome to ask for pile in custom projects. The Homage Collection is an especially ideal choice for second homes, studios, beach houses, country homes, farm houses, and young families; easy to maintain, adaptable, and lending a reserved, dignified tone to many projects.
