Inspiration can come from anywhere! Much of what our co-owner and designer Bahram Shabahang is inspired by are things that you find in nature. This is definitely true for our line of butterfly carpets.
Bahram took what he saw in actual butterflies and translated that into a stunning contemporary piece. Some of these carpets are a little more literal.
Others, like the carpet pictured up top, are more abstract with an almost pixelated look. Some play with color like the carpet below with has a subtle yellow background with a cream and light blue design.
In the carpet below, Bahram chose to have the design woven in a beautiful grey silk giving the carpet an elegant and understated look.
It’s amazing how one design can have so much variety. From abstract to literal, these translations from real butterfly wings are truly impressive. The full collection of butterfly carpets can be found HERE.
