Long and Narrow Antique Turkish Oushak Rug, Country of Origin / Type of Rug: Antique Turkish Rugs, Date of Origin: Early 20th Century – This brilliant Oushak rug uses a vibrant color palette that relies on different shades of the same hue to establish a defining presence. Though the colors are wonderfully warm, there is enough difference in the shading and highlighting to establish clear points of contrast within the antique rug, which helps define the smaller details within. The long and narrow rug uses a principle of symmetry that is similar to what is common in runner rugs, where activity leads the viewer’s attention from the top of the piece to its bottom. Gentle movements create a soothing flow that stands out against the warmth of the antique Turkish rug itself.
