Fine Tibetan "Arabasque" - 9 x 12 - Nepal

#36690 – Fine Tibetan “Arabasque” – 9 x 12 – Nepal

The  fine Tibetan “Arabesque” displayed in WINDOW LEFT  measures 9 x 12.  It grounds a room with strength and beauty.   The carpet was hand-knotted in Kathmandu, Nepal using handspun, Himalayan wool.  This “Arabasque” of varied shades of grey, charcoal and black with metallic tones of gold, copper and bronze exudes richness and depth.  The intricate and simple patterns perfectly complement each other.  Like all Kebabian carpets, this piece is beautiful in its own right.

We always encourage our customers to begin their room design with a carpet.  Imagine this piece framed by a sparkling wood floor, against a backdrop of eggplant painted walls, dark wood furnishings and textiles with a pop of citron.  The accessories could include beautifully framed photos of your favorite destinations making this room a getaway, but keeping it home!

The amount of detail in this carpet makes this piece even more unique.  The pattern on the bottom gives the carpet a more playful vibe, while the golden floral pattern provides sophistication.                                                                                         


Sultanabad - 9 x 11.8 - Afghanistan

#35888 – Sultanabad – 9 x 11.8 – Afghanistan

The lovely Sultanabad displayed in the WINDOW RIGHT measures  9 x 11.8.  This piece was hand-knotted in northern Afghanistan by Hazara women using handspun vegetally dyed Ghazni wool. The bold color palette of madder red, peach, sky blue, lime green and ivory is both warm and cheerful.

The floral vines in the inner field gracefully dance around the larger floral elements, while small flowers march happily around the main border, producing a perfectly choreographed ballet.  The guard borders, which are chock full of tiny details (i.e., paisley,  split lotus leaves, rosettes, etc.)  ground the carpet and contribute to the overall harmony of the piece.  This delightful piece has endless charm and grace.

A Kebabian carpet, which is always beautiful in its own right, is the perfect place to begin for inspiration and a foundation that will endure!  Kebabian’s Oriental Rugs making homes for over 131 years!
