As we walk into the historic 19th-century building where Ardean is, we went up two sets of staircases. The walls have beautiful vintage carpets draped over railings, and between the two sets of stairs, another staircase leads you to a building filled with carpets. Even the door that led to this other building had carpets draped on it, totally inspiring our modern blue Persian rug.

Located in Yerevan, the Ardean gallery is a center for arts, architecture, and design. This gallery features work inspired by medieval Armenian scriptures, sculptures, and architecture. The art, textiles, and accessories at Ardean are made using modern technology and some limited editions through handwork. The gallery has beautifully crafted and unique products showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Armenia.

Inspired by the wide variety of colors and patterns at the gallery, we decided to recolor the Paisley Shawl carpet. The cream and blue combination are reminiscent of a Persian rug. This carpet is part of the Easy Recolor Cultures collection, which features various designs inspired by spiritual, religious, and tribal themes.

We included light beige materials for the material board, such as Clayon by JAB and Sugar Plank by WoodCo. We also included Cubeline Anodized to add just the right amount of contrast. This materials palette features various unique patterns and colors, like the Ardean staircase with rugs hanging all around it. Chaos and Bavaria are busy patterns that add just the right amount of charm. The warm colors of Disco by Brentano, Chiseled, and UV Power Grid balance out the cold-toned recolored carpet. We also included Dynasty by Burch, which is another pattern reminiscent of Persian rugs. Lastly, Kirei’s print adds a hit of purple to take the material combinations even further.
