Blue Persian rug inspired by our visit to Ardean Gallery in Yerevan

Ardean & Carpet Staircase moodboard Talk Carpet

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.

Sitting right next to Pompidou in Paris is Atelier Brancusi. This place is a reconstruction of the studio of renowned Romanian-born artist Constantin Brancusi. In the atelier, there are 137 sculptures, 87 bases, 41 drawings, two paintings, and more than 1600 grass photographic plates and prints by the artist.

Brancusi died in 1957, leaving behind a lot of his work in his studio, which consisted of 11 joined studios. The Romanian artist would break down walls to adjoin studios and create various environments to exhibit his work. He considered the relationship between sculptures and the space they occupied to be of crucial importance.

In 1997, the Atelier Brancusi as we know it today opened its doors on the esplanade of the Center Pompidou. So much of Brancusi’s work is on display at the atelier, giving you an idea of how much the artist put into the world. There are wood and plaster sculptures, bronze colonnades, animal shapes, and photographic studies. It is a beautiful and inspiring place to visit.

Inspired by the stone and natural textures of Brancusi’s work, we recolored the Stone Surface carpet. This is part of the nature collection by ege carpets, which takes inspiration from forests, deserts, and oceans. This light recolor of the carpet allows you to bring a textured palette to your next interior design project.

We created a material board that focuses on a textured palette with the atelier colors and the recolored carpet in mind. We included dark woods like Texas Mesquite 83000 and Artisanal Hardwoods. Keeping the dark brown theme, we also included different textured textiles like Artisan Textured Finishes by CopperSmith, Basketcase by Cortina Leathers, Lafayette Velvet by Opuzen, and Chesney by Valley Forge Fabrics. Additionally, we decided to bring some lighter tones of cream and white by adding Cove, True Terrazzo, Concrete Look Porcelain Paver, and Passion. To tie in the soft colors with the dark ones, we included mid-toned neutral paints like Crewel Tan by Sherwin-Williams and Mesa Tan by Dunn-Edwards Paints.

If you like our textured palette, you might be interested in our Easy Recolor Program. We used this to recolor our Stone Surface carpet, enabling us to source the perfect backdrop for our textured palette. Using our online tool, you can do the same. Choose from any of our collections and recolor them to match any interior. You can then visualize the carpet before ordering physical carpet samples. You’ll receive your samples within three business days at an affordable price. Contact us if you want to learn more.
