Barbara Barran has designed two limited-edition rugs in conjunction with the Metropolitan Museum’s “Court and Cosmos: The Great Age of the Seljuks” exhibition.

This is the first time that the Met Store has commissioned contemporary rugs based on objects from their collections. Inspired by a 10th Century Seljuk Turk vase and an earthenware bowl, Barbara created a hand-knotted New Zealand wool and silk rug, and a wool flat weave.

The rugs are available exclusively at the Metropolitan Museum Store and on-line:
