Living rooms we love: Oushak edition

Living rooms we love: Oushak edition

Oushak rugs are of Turkish origin but unique for the extent to which they were influenced by Persian designs. True to Turkish form, they’re coarsely woven and often notable for their monumental scale. Color palettes are soft and light in tone, and the medallion motifs are more rectilinear than what you would find in a classic Persian rug. With this singular combination of size, color, and variety of designs, it’s no wonder that antique Oushaks are one of the most sought after types of rugs to stage a living room around. Check out some of our favorite Oushak-adorned living rooms in this edition of Living Rooms we Love.
