WINDOW WATCH provides details of the latest gorgeous carpets gracing Kebabian’s windows in downtown New Haven.
The powerful Heriz hanging in WINDOW LEFT measures 9.7 x 12.2. This impressive piece was hand-knotted in northwest Persia by Azeri women using vegetal dyed, handspun, local mountain sheep wool. This formidable carpet bursts with a cornucopia of rich colors: madder red, gold, indigo blue, kelly green, ivory, rose brown navy and more.
This Heriz includes traditional design elements, a charming medallion
(window to heaven) and an array of stylized floral patterns. This
masterpiece flawlessly transitions from the early tribal rugs which
primarily used geometric patterns to the more formal urban rugs which
largely utilized curvilinear patterns. The artist’s application of
both geometric and curvilinear designs give a beautiful life to the
blending of the old and the new, creating a harmonious new order, delivering a clean sophistication.
This carpet overflowing with rich colors will bring depth and a striking beauty wherever it lands.
The intriguing fine “Ottoman” with a “Dira” design displayed in WINDOW RIGHT measures 9 x 11.8. This piece was hand-knotted in northern Afghanistan by ethnic Turkmen women using handspun vegetally dyed Ghazni wool and hand-combed cotton on a cotton foundation. The crisp, white cotton brightens each individual sun and circle element methodically illuminating the entire piece.
This captivating carpet enables the buyer to capture the “sun” as the days turn darker and cooler. The blue sky that the sun rests on is clear. There is enough tan/straw to keep this incredible piece grounded and yet plenty of a ivory to have the piece bring light and air into a room. The color palette of natural ivory, straw and white, plus a beautiful blue give a fresh, light ambiance.
The overall sun pattern makes decorating a snap. The beguiling sun design set against the beautiful blue will simultaneously brighten and warm up a space!
