Some Of Our Most Favorite Movie Rugs
“The rug really tied the room together – did it not?” Rugs have made many a cameo appearance in many a Hollywood movie.
Here are our favorite rugs in movies:
The Big Lebowski: The Dude’s (Jeff Bridges) heart is broken when some local muscle mistakes him for a millionaire, breaks into his shoddy L.A. Home, and soils his rug. Claiming that “the rug really tied the room together,” The Dude seeks out his millionaire doppelganger for recompense. The rug is the genesis of chaos in this epic Coen Brothers film.
The Blind Side: Leigh Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock), an interior designer with impeccable taste and balls of steel, lays down the law when negotiating the price of an antique Oushak rug for one of her clients.
Here are some beautiful Oushak rugs from the Nazmiyal Collection:
Downton Abbey Antique Carpets: Discerning set designers chose a marvelous Aubusson carpet that captures the essence of early 20th century aristocratic decorative tastes in England.
Harry Potter: the Gryffindor common room features an antique Sultanabad rug that, alongside walls draped with antique tapestries, gives the room the scholarly feel of a luxurious study or library (which reminds us of a certain New York City library featuring a similar piece from the Nazmiyal Collection).
