From Turkey, with Love

New Anatolian Collection

Every year or so, a vendor friend from Turkey of long acquaintance offers us a small collection of Anatolian rugs. They have proven to be very popular. We generally sell them all.

 

Anatolia (Asia Minor) refers to the geographic region that occupies the land that modern Turkey occupies.

 

The rugs are older, but as always in great shape. Some may qualify as "vintage," that is older than 50 years but younger than 100.

 

The rugmakers make traditional knotted rugs, but shear them down quite severely so that there is no pile. 

 

This results in a very clean linear presentation wherein the design elements really stand out.

Anatolian Rug 4 x 6
Every element of the rug is finely delineated. In addition it's made with angora wool which gives it a sheen.

 

Anatolian rug 4x10
Clean and neat in every way.

An Intriguing Mystery

Anatolian Rug 4x10
Notice the "1946" in the lower right corner.

Every once in a while you see one with the date woven into the carpet.  At the time it was woven it probably lessoned the value of the rug.

But wait 72 years and it's cool.

And it's fun to speculate. What does it mean?

Here's a close-up.

Why Designers Like Them

These rugs make great accent pieces and can quietly enliven a neutral space.

 

Plus they are totally unique.

 

Although the majority are a traditional field/border layout, there are some interesting exceptions.

 

Anatolion 3x5 rug
Beautiful in its simplicity.

 

Anatolian rug 3x5
Subtle and vague, unlike the more precise layouts.

These rugs are available in both the Orlando and Tampa showrooms. The entire collection can be seen at in the Just In section of our website.
