This week’s Wednesday Wishlist rug is a lovely vintage Turkish kilim! This beautiful vintage rug presents a motif of large alternating geometric medallions of red and pink, each set against a lighter shade of ivory, or ivory-white. These motifs are a version of the “Gol” symbol. Gol is the word for flower in Farsi, also called a floral medallion or rosette. Round gols symbolize celestial bodies like the sun, moon or stars. Smaller geometric shapes appear interspersed between the medallions, and are possibly abstracted botanical motifs. An orange zig-zag border on both ends and crenelated border on the sides give this kilim a rhythmic feel.
Although this rug is from the mid 20th century, the tradition of rug weaving goes back centuries in Turkey. This flat weave vintage kilim rug provides a graphic pop of color, and richly historical tribal feel to any interior its included in. Although it’s over 50 years old, this vintage rug’s geometric design and bold hues feel thoroughly modern.
