Hand knotted in wool originating from Turkey circa 1960-1970, this vintage rug remarks a vintage Turkish Art Deco rug design joining our Mid-Century Pasha Collection, honoring designer Zeki Müren with our team’s hand-selected favorites like that of this transitional play of blue and beige hues. The curvature of the patterns bears a resemblance to ancestral Khotan and Chinese rugs with cloud and floral patterns, further remarking the variety of Art Deco rug influences in Müren’s distinctive style often marrying these principles with Turkish technique. The almost superimposed nature of the pattern within the solid color border has a natural depth to it keeping with the iconic, unmistakable nature of this line of vintage Turkish rugs and the individualistic nature of each design. Connoisseurs will note both the distressed, shabby chic charm and the refined low height of the pile, taken down to the appeal of a Kilim or flat weave style. The distressed charm, forgiving colorway, and spacious size lends this Art Deco rug a particular suitability to modern living room rug projects, discerning dining room rug projects, and a surprising variety of adjacent interior design projects adding to the collectibility and approachability of this design in the history of Turkish rug making. In the select variations we’ve seen of this substyle in the Mid-Century Pasha Collection, this Art Deco rug enjoys both a crisp white colorway with a notable grace and elegance, particularly against the richer navy blue colorway than its sibling patterns of adjacent distinction.
