Modern Oushak / Country of Origin: Turkey / Circa Date: Modern – This gorgeous modern Oushak carpet has a tribal feel, but its design is modern and updated, making it perfect for contemporary interiors. This piece is based on traditional Oushak designs that date back thousands of years, but it is done in such a way as to give it a completely modern flavor. It has a bold design that has a graphic quality, but its colors are gentle and rich.
The colors of this carpet are a blend of the old and the new. The carpet has a darker border and a variation on the traditional colors that you expect to find in Oushak carpets, but it also uses blending techniques that make it perfectly suited to modern color trends. Neutral tones are a popular choice for creating a feeling of calm and serenity in the space. Grey is the new black. This carpet uses a technique that blends neutral greys and soft blues to create a piece that works well with neutrals in the room, but that also has a barely present hint of blue.
The chocolate browns and spicy reds create a natural, neutral theme of this carpet. The floral design in the border reflects the natural world and the traditional patterns that inspired this piece. This carpet uses symmetry in form, which gives it a formal quality that it would carry throughout the space, but the tribal designs soften it and give it a more casual feel. The result is a versatile piece that is perfect for a number of today’s popular design trends, from classic to a bit more eclectic.
The deeper colors of this modern carpet give it a rich, regal flavor that is accented by eclectic motifs that are reminiscent of the ancient village carpets of Oushak. One of the features of Oushak carpets that had made them so popular throughout the centuries is their range of design and variation. This carpet demonstrates the talent and ability of the Oushak weavers to adapt their designs to modern tastes. This is a beautiful piece of modern artwork for your contemporary interior design.
