The Children of the Forest would have loved this strong flowing rug with its central tree of life motif, bursts of color and flowers, and images of forest creatures. Maybe made as a gift to the First Men after their truce to remind them of the Old Gods of the Forest.
Despite the rugged lifestyle of the Night's Watch, the Lord Commander at Castle Black would have needed a rug to warm his quarters and remind him of the beauty worth protecting from the threats beyond the wall. Would any rug but a black one do? Maybe inherited from nobler times when members of noble houses made their way to the North to serve the realm. Striking contrast and beauty exists in this piece.
This beautiful finely hand-knotted rug clearly would have been commissioned by Aegon The Conqueror to match the red rocks of the Red Keep of King's Landing. The royal pallet of a deep red background is covered in grandiose flowers and a strong tiered golden-cream border.
With a color and style different from many of the rich traditional pieces, the clearer background and sandy colors evoke the lands of Dorne around Sunspear. A relaxed look clearly belonging to the south, this soft rug would be perfect for lounging on with friends while sipping wine and enjoying the finer pleasures in life.
Much like the great castle of Highgarden and its famed gardens within the tiered walls, this super-fine hand-knotted rug is a great example of how palatial gardens inspire rug designs. The detailed garden squares with their unique flowers, cornered by details crests and walled by golden ornament are subtly contained by the light colored grand border. The Tyrells would have cherished this treasure.
The Dothraki are known to travel and raid towns and cities, but it is clear that this piece evokes the tribal lifestyle and aesthetic, hence a likely gift from other wandering nomads to a great Khal. Rich reds, blues and ivories create the backdrop for the tribal triple medallion, with various animal motifs scattered throughout the favored color of tribal people. Qoy qoyi!
Muted, simple earthy colors but with a rich intricacy and royalty that would be fitting of any Stark's floors. Not too showy, yet still beautiful and regal, this piece will solidly hold any room together. Blends in well with the dark carved wood of Winterfell, and perfect to protect your feet against the coming winter.
Clearly smuggled out of Valyria in the final days of that great city. Much like Valyrian steel, this fine hand-knotted rug is an exemplary piece of vintage rug craftsmanship. An amazingly grand medallion, and beautiful coloration, this vintage piece has been re-dyed and carved to reclaim its old glory.
