When you begin decorating a room, start with a rug. It lays the foundation for space management, color pallet, and furniture style. Elegant, royal, rich, or flowery you just can’t go wrong with a well made rug. Golran rugs began in 1898 in Mashad, a Persian city between Russia and Iran. Hajizahed Golran was the founder who was succeeded by his son Elyas Golran from 1950. International business opened up in Europe, and the headquarters moved to Milan, Italy in 1968 where it remains to this day. The masterpieces that roll out of Golran’s workshop are beyond words. The luscious colors of magnificent artisan creations and the jaw dropping ornate varieties make us say wow! The shame of it all is they are destine to go on the floor! Each rug is hand woven with perfection. They only use top quality materials of wool, silk, linen, and cotton. Golran also has an unbelievable collection called Carpet Reloaded. With this collection Golran combines its know-how and experience accrued over the years with creativity and experimentation, thus anticipating a tendency and channelling it into a new trend. Carpet Reloaded uses new cutting-edge techniques to rework and reinterpret Oriental rugs from the first and second halves of the twentieth century. The past, with its materials and traditional weaving techniques, is projected into the present via decolorizing processes and successive monochromatic dyeing stages that give the rug a completely new identity. Moving forward, this company is striving to keep itself current by consulting with cutting edge decor and design influences. They even have a unique option for customer interaction allowing you to participate in the creation of your perfect rug. Golran also offers custom-made service for architects, interior designers and design studios to satisfy all demands, always keeping the focus on quality and excellence. They are expected to release a brand new collection which will be presented January 18-22 at Maison & Objet Paris.
