Rugs are an awesome way to express character in a room and what much better way to do this then with 1 of a type vintage rugs that have been reinterpreted into a modern day day art form by way of the process of decolourisation and re-dyeing with monochromatic vegetal dyes. The Golran collection vintage mohair rugs use this process to develop spectacular expressions of either bold vibrant colours or natural tones and pastels. Adore the concept of this Jack and Jill rug with potent pink hand knotted on one particular half and Cerulean blue on the other.
For a a lot more industrial aesthetic, this smoky pattern of greys with random hand tufting of cayenne would look quite amazing in a loft with brick walls and concrete floors. I really like how the decolourising/redyeing approach creates an uneven striation within the background colour even though the original pattern emerges in a hazy shadow of its former self.
Each yarn and every single weave has a various reaction to the decolouration and dyeing approach creating the final impact practically accidental – significantly the exact same way a garden will often surprise the gardener from week to week with its reaction to the numerous climate patterns. Speaking of gardens, does not this rug remind you of 1?
For those who really like a black and white scheme, this rug fits the bill. It is almost a doily for the floor with its lacy pattern but the formality of the doily imagery is whimsied up by the occasional sandy tufts – as well considerably fun. This would be excellent at the foot of a bed.
The total decolourised line functions vintage mohair carpets that are hand knotted. Some have several hand knots and some have just a couple of such as this version with its couple of tufts along the edges in rose, pumpkin and olive. These tufts can be super enhanced by repeating their colours in a selection of toss cushions and accessories.
Here the tufts are clustered on a single edge as though the rug is starting to deconstruct. I would love to see this rug in a living room below a glass topped coffee table and surrounded by leather furniture in shade of cream.. Golran
