Modern Rug Designs from Tissage Gallery
A new wave in emulating the effects of time is now appearing in contemporary rugs. Designers are creating sophisticated patterns to mimic partially erased motifs, as one would see in worn-out antiques after many years of service.
Starting in the early 2000's, the producers of new hand-knotted carpets revolutionized the industry with a distressed or antiqued look in new carpets, creating the look and feel of antique Oriental rugs. However, these techniques distressed the fibers and foundation, shortening the life of the carpets.
Some especially creative rug designers now incorporate the look into the design, rather than physically distressing the rugs. Incorporating faded designs and erased motifs keeps the surface of the carpet in perfect shape; the unique look is achieved by outstanding design work and use of colors.
The erased motif concept adapts nicely to both traditional and contemporary Oriental carpet designs, a big relief to interior designers working with contemporary furniture and textiles.
Landry & Arcari is proud to be exclusive New England distributor of Tissage, a Jaipur, India, company who are among the best practitioners of the faded-look carpets. This gallery has examples of some designs and colors of the Tissage collection. Some of these rugs have silk for highlights and some have a surface entirely of silk.
If any of these designs interest you, please contact us for price and availability. We can check for availability of the size and design that you requested.
