Turkish Handmade 8x10 Angora Ushak Area Rug
Classic Angora Ushak Area Rug in Soft Pastel Palette.
Ushak rugs and carpets, also spelled Oushak, are a style of rug that has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity within interior design during past decade. However, the aesthetic of the modern Oushak rug design actually originate in the 19th Century. While the areas around Istanbul have been known for producing rugs and carpets of high quality since the 15th Century, during the late Ottoman period the designs began to show a distinctly Persian influence with larger floral shapes combined with a usage of softer, more pastel like color palettes. The open motifs are said to foster as feeling of calmness often accentuated by these color choices. Often employing a larger knot and a silky luxurious wool and Angora blend, these rugs bring a casual formality and are often designed with larger rooms in mind.
Gorgeous light blue and heather brown area rug. The large exagerated floral shapes in the central field are astmetrically placed which is a very classic Ushak design feature. The pastel palette of colors in fresh and airy. The large knots typical of these rugs and the playful colors make these rugs a great option for adding some subtle color to otherwise neutral decor choices. The use of Angora wool in the hand-knotted pile adds a nice sheen to piece that has an over all defused and slightly faded look.
