Port Kenny Highland Hand Knotted Tibetan Rug, 6' Square
Port Kenny Highland Hand Knotted Tibetan Rug, 6' Squareby Christopher Fareed Design Studios
$3,760
Sponsored
The Tibetan Collection came about through Fareed's desire to pay tribute to an age-old method of rug making, a method which brings with it a unique aesthetic rooted in the traditional designs and customs of its origin culture. These pieces are not only masterful examples of the style, they are reinventions of it. Drawing from a wide range of Fareed's influences, these pieces owe just as much to 21st century movements as they do to the cultural heritage they signify. In challenging our notions of antiquity through integrating modernist art influences, these rugs are transcending the boundary between being a piece of functional art and being the traditional centerpiece of any living space. Drawing inspiration from natural landscapes, abstract shapes and concepts, bridging the conventional and the abstract, these rugs will transform your space with all of the elegance and charm. With a distinct urban and cosmopolitan feel, these rugs play a vital everyday role, not only as an expression of individuality, but as part of the shelter that sustains us. All Christopher Fareed Tibetan Rugs are hand-knotted using only the purest New Zealand Wool and masterfully blended with Banana Silk in some cases to guarantee a top level of quality and durability. Child labor free and made with biodegradable, all natural materials. 10 to 14 weeks lead time.Read More
Odense A Signature Rug, 6' Square
Odense A Signature Rug, 6' Squareby Christopher Fareed Design Studios
$2,350

The Signature collection is comprised of some of Fareed's most modern and striking designs, emphasizing experimentation over convention. While the production of his rugs is done according to age-old methods, his experimental creative process allows him a means for departure from the conventional parameters of rug designing. Fareed doesn't enjoy creating sterile, unremarkable pieces. Just as important to the formation of his notion of artistic integrity is the acknowledgement that anything pure and noble is all the more ripe for corruption. As an artist attending university in London during his formative years, he invariably began to see new, radical forms of modern expression, including graffiti, punk music and the Neo-Pop movement. To him, this experience introduced him to a new type of culture, a transient culture characterized as transient, nihilistic, and sometimes even self-destructive. For him, the implications of these new forms of expression were clear: nothing is meant to last forever. This mantra, a far cry from the romantic notions his predecessors echoed in their craft, was the heart of his methodology. In our mass culture of consumerism, celebrity worship, instant gratification, and a conspicuous obsession with material wealth, still some traditional mediums have managed to survive the onslaught of pop-culture iconography. This all the more deepened his fascination with a medium long considered traditional, while forcing him to reconsider the nature of creativity in the context of textiles, an area of art with which very little had improved upon or changed for some time. Drawing inspiration from natural landscapes, abstract shapes and concepts, bridging the conventional and the abstract, these rugs will transform your space with all of the elegance and charm. With a distinct urban and cosmopolitan feel, these rugs play a vital everyday role, not only as an expression of individuality, but as part of the shelter that sustains us. All Christopher Fareed Signature Rugs use only the purest New Zealand Wool, or masterfully blended with Banana Silk in some cases, to guarantee a top level of quality and durability.
