Oushak, or Ushak, Uşak rugs are the most popular Turkish area rugs design. Oushak rugs are named after the city where they are initially made.
Durable, beautiful, elegant; the queen of the rug universe, antique Oushaks are made with love to spread grace in today’s world.
Made by the villagers of the Uşak city, Turkey, Oushak rugs, among all, manifest themselves with the delicacy of their fine floral designs, which surprisingly goes with both modern and classic design language. Thus, Oushaks are indeed a part of a “timeless design”. This elegant floral concept in design is often accompanied by a tentative medallion in the middle. The scattered, unorderly manner of the patterns around it almost shows its post-modernity, a monument of modern expression from the past.
The Use of Color
As being exceptionally unique and attractive in terms of design, Oushaks could be found in different palettes than classic ivory and saffron like blues, pastel tones, apricot, and even green. As they are manufactured in western Turkey, stating that the color palette of Oushaks is Mediterranean influenced would not be wrong at all. Especially in the last decades, the more the lighter colors increased in design, the more Oushaks have been chosen by the interior designers in Europe and USA, rather than bold and dark Persian antique palette.
Matched Interior Design Trends
The decorative ideas for Oushak rugs are pretty easy, as they are already, so to speak, would change all look in your room, taking all the burden from other details. Yet they are still compatible with many popular trends from Traditional look to Contemporary.
This unique design of Oushak rugs merged with the one-of-a-kind nature of handmade rugs has made them irreplaceable for the famous Ottoman mosques and the most important palaces during the Ottoman dynasty. Today, the oversize Oushaks used in Ottoman palaces are still exhibited in a museum in Istanbul.
