Tufenkian’s was highlighted in Veranda’s feature article “The World of…Oushak Rugs.” This Armenian piece is found in our Traditional / Arts & Crafts collection. In an excerpt from the article: "Exported since the fifteenth century from the Turkish town that gives it’s name, the Oushak is a classic wool rug with plenty of plush warmth, both literal and visual. Historically, its earth tones and geometric floral patterns were associated with kings – the rugs appear underfoot in early Renaissance royal portraits – but today’s versions aren’t as formal. They feature softer palettes and motifs in combinations that fit the bill in alls orts of rooms, regal or not." --text by Mario Lopez Cordero, produced by Jill Brown & Eugenia Santiesteban Soto.
