Turkish rugs are well known and their oushak rugs are prized — especially for an exotic bath.
Turkish rugs have been produced since the 15th century. These antique carpets can be found at auctions and new reproductions are readily available on the retail market. Designs are predominantly geometric, with an allover pattern. The beauty of Turkish rugs is enhanced by a fascinating 1915 Southern California master bathroom reimagined by designer Chris Barrett with a quarry of Moroccan tiles that showcases the skill of Moroccan mosaic tile artists. The spectacular antique Oushak rug further compliments the Moorish designed spa which is gently lit by an amber chandelier. Don’t overlook the amazing Matisse over the “fireplace.” Located in Anatolia, the Turkish town of Oushak (Ushak) is famous for its rugs, new and old. This one has a typical orange field with blue and cream medallions and borders. Oushaks are prized for their soft colors.
The rug’s classic soft blue coloring is a splendid compliment to the tile work since it picks up the blue in the carpet. Furnishings also express the taste for an Orientalist spa, including the highly elaborate custom fretwork canopy over the tub. This is an unforgettable and luxurious bath with very specific taste and a gorgeous and luxurious turkish rug.
French designer Alberto Pinto created a fretwork tub enclosure in a Moorish Tub Bathroom for a house in Tunisia.
