About: Where will you ever find another piece like this? The all-over design, the incredible palmette motifs, and the sensational color palette?! Probably nowhere. This is woven in the central-Western part of the rug weaving mecca of the world. Multi-sized motifs add interest, the colors dance like a parade around this piece that's all grounded in the most beautiful deep indigo. The border is beautiful with the needed order and symmetry, and the subtle hints of ancient inspired designs like Herati/fish garden motifs pop up here and there adding even more depth to an already intriguing piece. This rug is just so beautiful; I named it after one of my favorite cities because Barcelona at night is so alive, so colorful, and so full of life and energy - this piece truly embodies that. This piece is an interior designer's DREAM because of the spaces it could go and the accompanying pieces it coordinates with. Blush, magenta, indigo, beige, green, orange, teal, light blue, eggplant, browns, mocha, plums, chocolate, and probably the other half of the crayon box. My face is in this picture of how crazy it is, and the one where I'm pondering is thinking about whom in the hell wove this beauty!!? 

This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available.

Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.

Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out! We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.

A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
