View Our Fashion Week Runway Inspired Antique Rug Selection

Antique Rugs Inspired by Fashion Week — At Nazmiyal, we believe that style extends to every aspect of life, from the way we design our homes, to the way we dress. Fashion Week in New York just ended, and we’re feeling so inspired by the beautiful styles worn by the models walking the runways. We couldn’t help but notice that many of the collections shown were reminiscent of styles of antique rugs and vintage carpets in the Nazmiyal inventory! We’ve highlighted a few below, in the hopes that you will also feel that spark of creativity!

Fashion Week: Jil Sander Collection & Vintage Scandinavian Rugs

Jil Sander’s new collection and our vintage Scandinavian rugs both place an emphasis on bold colors, clean lines, and graphic geometric patterns. Scandinavian design places an emphasis on balancing form and function, an idea we feel was well-represented in Jil Sanders’ collection of smart trench coats, sensible rainboots, and casual separates. If smart design and bold colors speak to you as well, we recommend you browse our selection of vintage Scandinavian rugs!

Fashion Week: Etro Collection and Antique Persian Rugs

When we saw the new Fall 2015 collection from Etro, we were excited to see paisley motifs in abundance. The paisley, or “Boteh,” is a very common symbol in antique Persian rugs, which signifies fertility and long life. The Boteh Plant also symbolizes autumn in many middle-eastern cultures — a very appropriate motif to use in a fall collection! If you feel drawn to these autumnal and auspicious flowers, click the image to view our collection to antique Persian rugs!

Nazmiyal’s collection of antique rugs from East Turkestan speak to a similar aesthetic. Woven with both tribal and classic designs, each antique East Turkestan rug is uniquely interesting. If you like elegant, bohemian designs, antique rugs from East Turkestan are perfect for you!

Michael Kor’s new collection for Fall, 2015 is modern, subtle, and luxurious. Our mid-century Moroccan rugs, which feature lush, wooly pile and spare geometric designs are similarly modern and subdued. Our Moroccan rugs prove that neutral colors in interior design can be incredibly interesting, especially since these rugs feature luxe details and plush softness.

Christopher Kane’s Fall 2015 collection was filled with graphic pieces composed in primary colors. Vibrant geometric patterning and a strict palette of blue, red, and black kept the collection feeling clean and contemporary. Our collection of vintage Roy Lichtenstein rugs, which feature the artist’s pop-art motifs in classic colors feels fresh and bold. If you’re looking for a carpet to add an artful pop to your interior, these Roy Lichtenstein rugs are a perfect option.
