Bessarabian Rugs in 21 Top-Rated Interiors on Pinterest

Image for Bessarabian Rugs in 21 Top-Rated Interiors on Pinterest

We've collected 21 top-pinned interiors from Pinterest that showcase prestigious Bessarabian rugs which were originally made for Russian royalty in the 19th century. The Russian treasury wanted to keep money from its France and England rivals, that they made copies of Aubusson rugs and English needlepoint rugs in the Bessarabia province of Ukraine, where there was a long history of indigenous rug weaving. However, the rug weavers of Bessarabia made rugs according to their folk traditions. The Bessarabian weavers, unfamiliar with French and English methods of weaving, created patterns in their own spontaneous way. The Bessarabian rugs took on a warm, less-formal look, which was very different from the French and English rugs. Bessarabian rugs have become increasingly fashionable with interior designers such as Susan Zises Green, Janet Simon, Michael S. Smith, Stephane Boudin, Lee Radziwill, David Easton, Bunny Williams, Renzo Mongiardino, Mario Buatta and Albert Hadley, to name a few. Find inspiration with these 21 unique spaces and choose a Bessarabian rug for your next project!
