A Turkish Karapinar plainweave in natural wool from central Turkey ideally suits the light and airy feel of this sparsely furnished penthouse admirably suiting its surroundings. The flatweave made for utilitarian purposes was never used and is is at least 50 years of age thus preserved in as new condition for its new life.
We had a request to provide a carpet for a Scottish borders church used by the Kelso Music Society. A carpet was required jointly for church chancel furnishings and also as a pad for chamber groups of musicians. The brief being for a sober yet elegant appearance and a firm texture with the right acoustic attributes. The carpet chosen was a Persian Sultanaband carpet, densely knotted and relatively modern with a traditional ‘ Herati ‘ design. The design name taking its name from the Timurid city in W. Afghanistan comprises of a flower inside a rhomb surrounded by four acanthus type leaves sometimes seen as fish. The pattern is often used on carpets as an all-over/repeated motif.

Having long been involved advising with the carpet collection at Herterton House Nursery,Northumberland its a pleasure to see that the National Trust owned ( privatly leased ) house and nursery garden has been featured in a book by by Pimpernelpress.
Very well regarded in gardening circles for its exquisite garden it is less well known that the layout and aesthetic has been influenced by Persian carpet design.

We support the work of Handel and Hendrix House at 25 Brook Street, Mayfair, London helping source comparable rugs to the originals of the rooms occupied by Jimi Hendrix in 1968 - 1970. It appears Jimi was fond of oriental rugs. Although he hardly had the time to fully develop his taste one can see he was certainly on the right track.
