Hand-knotted in wool and all-natural silk, this 9×12 rug is a new addition to the Mid-Century Modern rug collection by Rug & Kilim. This collection is a bold custom-capable line recapturing an underrepresented, iconic period with an entirely new approach to large scale, drawing, varied color and refined texture.
Further on the Design:
This design by Red Dot award-winner Nikita Nagpal enjoys bold hues on a lustrous silver-gray background with a fabulous sense of movement. Keen eyes will further admire how finely drawn the geometric patterns and dot motifs are for a rug in this large size and scale. Furthermore, the silk’s natural sheen pays a natural complement to both the metallic and vibrant hues alike for a gorgeous presence in varied light.
