ANTIQUE TRIBAL CAUCASIAN KILIM RUNNER RUG. 12 ft x 2 ft 7 in (3.66 m x 0.79 m).

Beautiful Antique Tribal Caucasian Kilim Runner Rug, Origin: Caucasian rug, Circa: 1900 – This magnificent, colorful kilim from the Caucasus Mountain region was created around the turn of the 20th century. It features a diamonds within diamonds geometric pattern and tribal symbols throughout. It is an antique, but its pattern would also make the perfect addition to a contemporary setting. Many modern rug makers are now trying to emulate these traditional rug patterns, but there is nothing as beautiful as an original.

This runner rug would make the perfect addition to a hallway or longer space. It has a loosely repeating pattern, but it also has a spontaneity that only comes from a hand-knotted rug. The pattern repeats, but it also has small variations that reflect the artistic choices of the weaver that can be seen throughout.

The colors and pattern of this rug are the perfect match for today’s interior styles. Geometrics are a trend that finds its way into many contemporary styles. This rug has geometric patterns on several different scales with variations that give it character and depth.

Even though this carpet was created over 100 years ago, the colors look at if it was created for a contemporary color palette. It has an earthy and organic feel that makes it perfect for rooms with an eclectic or global world market feel. The bright colors and simple pattern also make it the perfect piece for a Boho chic room, too.

This year’s color trends include earthy colors and the colors of spices. This carpet would be the perfect accent for a palette that includes colors such as meadow green, earthy browns, terracotta, cider spice, and midnight blue. It has a look that is grounded and adaptable to many different modern trends.

This piece would also be the perfect addition to an ultra-modern space where its classic geometrics and diamond pattern create a focal point. The piece is also reminiscent of mid-century abstract art. This is a fascinating piece because it is a traditional tribal Caucasian rug, but it is versatile enough to complement several modern interior design trends. It will spark your creativity and help you to create a space that is fresh and energetic.
