“Of all the rooms in the house your bedroom is yours.”

Kebabian’s Afghan Khotan brings vision of comfort and beauty “home”

Afghan Khotan 9 x 12

“You may concentrate on appearances

all through the rest of the house

but in the bedroom comfort should be supreme.

I think that bedrooms should also be very intimate rooms-

they should express your personal preferences

in every way…

Of all the rooms in the house your bedroom is yours.”

Pillow Ideas

     Anyone who has visited a cottage in England knows that there are no two floral prints that clash with one another.  Now let’s change floral print to IKAT!  If a pair of “Ikat” prints appear to be clashing, simply add a third.  If those look like they are clashing, add a fourth and so on, until it all just works.  A wide range of color palettes and scales final result is inviting and sophisticated. (Houzz)

     When it comes to comparing apples to apples, Kebabian’s prices are highly competitive.  After the sale outstanding service is always provided.  We have recently brought in a shipment of pillows.  Our pillows are sold with the filling, because making life simple & beautiful is what we do!

Looking to give a fresh look to a space?  Kebabian’s got the pillow!

Backstory to Stylish Pak-Afghan Tabriz:

#31310 Fine Tabriz 9 x 11.3 Pak-Afghan

#31310 Fine Tabriz 9 x 11.3 Pak-Afghan

The stylish finely woven Tabriz hanging in WINDOW RIGHT measuring 9 x 11.3 brings warmth and a classic style to a space.  This piece was hand-knotted in Attock, northern Pakistan by 4 Afghani Turkmen over a period of 6-7 months using handspun vegetally dyed local wool. The artist’s simple color palette of madder red, cream, tan, navy and teal coupled with a sophisticated pattern brings just the right amount of ease and intensity to create a classic timeless design.

Historically, Tabriz, capital of the province of Iranian Azaerbaijan, has been one of the most important centers for the production of Oriental carpets. Their designs have a mathematical precision that creates a perfect symmetry. This piece contains the classic design of a small diamond, which occupies the center and is surrounded by a series of concentric medallions.  The rich, red field’s floral vines appear as latticework and also define the alluring cream corner quadrants. The main navy colored border contains peonies, which represent power,  separated by a simple floral design, which brings in air and maintains a nice balance. The tan guard borders use of design and color are striking.

     The artist masterfully creates a work of art which implores you to slow down and enjoy the ”colors”. “Speed kills colour…the gyroscope when turning at full speed, shows up gray.” Paul Morand.

Stunningly Beautiful Tibetan & Unmistakably Beautiful Fine Afghan Tabriz

WINDOW LEFT

#37524 Stunningly Beautiful Tibetan 9 x 12

#37524 Stunningly Beautiful Tibetan 9 x 12

The STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL Tibetan hanging in WINDOW LEFT fabulously grounds a room with sophistication and style. This carpet was hand-knotted in Kathmandu, Nepal by 3-4 Nepalese weavers using handspun Himalayan wool  over a period of 4-5 months.

The evolving field of various shades of gray and brown is sprinkled with metallic tones of gold, copper and bronze exuding a richness and depth. The primary designs boast a fresh blue bringing air into the space.

The combination of elaborate and simple patterns perfectly complement each other. The exquisite, dominating design creates a luxurious atmosphere while the simple patterns keep the carpet from taking itself too seriously.

The artist successfully created a stunningly beautiful piece of art incorporating what might be viewed as competing ideas – simplicity versus complexity in design and dark versus light in colors. The final result was a glorious synergy. Well done!

“Art is beauty, the perpetual invention of detail,

the choice of words, the exquisite care of execution.”

#35973 Unmistakable Beauty - Fine Afghan Tabriz

#35973 Unmistakable Beauty – Fine Afghan Tabriz

The UNMISTAKABLY BEAUTIFUL fine Afghan Tabriz hanging in WINDOW RIGHT measures 9 x 12. This Tabriz was hand-knotted in northern Afghanistan by 4 Turkmen women using handspun vegetally dyed Ghazni wool over a period of 9-10 months. The inspiration for this intriguing carpet is Haji Jalili Tabrizes, which are noted for their earth tones and nuanced designs.

The carefully chosen color palette of walnut, pearl gray and copper orange with a touch of pale gray set against a backdrop of creamy muslin effectively champions the artist’s exquisite fine Tabriz design.

The utilization of palmettes interlaced with floral chains in the field is absolutely gorgeous! The main border’s fastidious use of palmettes and floral vines is lovely. The inner and outer guard borders utilize a simple floral chain and the trefoil respectively, while the immediate outer guard border employs a rarely seen level of detail. The various components of the carpet design come together in a spectacular fashion.

The artist’s caliber of design, color and materials is unparalleled. The final result is an Afghan Tabriz of unmistakable beauty!

“Beauty without expression is boring.”
