This vintage 5×8 rug from Turkey is an exciting new addition to Rug & Kilim’s Mid-Century Pasha Collection. This line is a commemoration, with rare curations we believe to hail from multidisciplinary Turkish designer Zeki Müren. Hand-knotted in wool circa 1960-1970.
Further on the Design:
This Art Deco rug draws on minimalism in a playful retro fashion—another of Müren’s calling cards in color and style. The play of red and blue geometric patterns over ochre evokes the feeling of a masterful modern painting. It’s a bold piece from Müren’s finest works that stands out both in his day and ours.
Further on the Condition:
This mid-century Art Deco rug further enjoys an otherwise good condition for this provenance. Its pile has been lowered, which lends a distressed element to the texture.
