Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” Wassily Kandinsky
The warm brown shades in this custom rug from Kandinsky’s Gloomy Situation celebrate quality and simplicity. Balanced shapes and down-to-earth minimalistic elegance.
Kandinsky painted his artwork Gloomy Situation in 1933, the year in which the Bauhaus dissolved and he moved to Paris. The original artwork is at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, but you can have it as a custom rug in your very own home.

• Technique: Tibetan handknotted 100 kpsi.
In the Tibetan handknotted technique we follow the centuries-old handcraft tradition. We first set a vertical wooden loom, on which we stretch cotton warp threads from the bottom to the top in a continuous loop. We then make the knots around two warp threads and a metal rod. The knot count (80, 100 or 150 kpsi
-knots per square inch-) states how many individual knots are made in one square inch. A higher knot count allows for more detail in the design while also resulting in a finer rug texture and a longer-lasting rug, as the knots are tighter and denser. Tibetan rugs are extremely high-quality and an wonderful example of pure handcraft.
• Material: New Zealand wool.
Pure New Zealand wool is a high-quality, resilient material that offers the brightest colour absorption and creates wonderfully soft rugs.
• Size: 240 x 170 cm (7.9 x 5.6 ft) or 300 x 213 cm (9.8 x7.0 ft) or contact us to request your bespoke size.
