Magnificently Artistic Blue Color Square Size Silk and Wool Garo Antreasian Art Rug, Country Of Origin / Rug Type: Indian Rugs, Circa Date: 1970 – This fascinating blue silk and wool rug by artist Garo Antreasian brings a sense of whimsy and interest to any contemporary design. The vibrant colors of this beautiful art rug are enhanced by a luster and sheen that only silk fibers can provide. This is not a piece that can be tucked into a corner and hidden from sight. It will stand out as a central focal point when used as a wall hanging tapestry rug or a floor covering vintage area rug.
The most interesting design feature of this artistic Indian rug is the border which appears to wander and intrude into the main field on either end of the Wool Garo Antreasian art rug. The differently colored side borders of the mostly blue colored rug, give it direction and define the borders as the ends of the square size rug.
The field is an allover design of tone on tone round silk polka dots in bold rendition. The field is outlined by a thin red line that helps to set it apart from the borders. This makes it appear as if the artist treated the field and the borders as separate design space.
This silk and wool Garo Antreasian art rug is nearly square and it is only slightly longer in its length than its width. It is symmetrical both horizontally and vertically, with the center defined by a grid of the tone on tone silk polka dots.
The bold colors and interest in the borders, as well as the use of vibrant blue as the background of the central field draws attention to both elements and makes them stand out on their own. This art rug, by renowned artist Garo Antreasian, will make an excellent piece to add interest to any modern, minimalist, or contemporary interior design.
