PLEASE NOTE - this item has now been sold. If you're looking for something similar please get in touch and we'll do our best to help.


Originally designed by Verner Panton this rug is exclusively produced by German rug specialists Designer Carpets and hand knotted in Nepal from the finest silk. It features the Ypsilon design which has a 3D effect of contrasting coloured ‘Y’ block shapes. It’s naturally a very expensive rug to buy new and as you can see from the screen shot retails at 1,535 Euro per sqm. However, this rug is larger than their maximum set sizes and so has been made bespoke to order at a considerable cost.


It’s just over 3 years old and has just been professionally cleaned by silk rug specialists James Barclay in London. As such it’s in excellent condition with no major marks, stains, holes or tears and no furniture dents in the surface.

It’s a stunning rug that would look great in a reception room, large entrance hall or lounge setting but would also work well as a counterpoint under a dining table and chairs.


A note on silk rugs
It’s important to understand that silk rugs have a nap which creates texture and colour variations depending on how it is brushed and touched. If you are therefore looking for a rug that is always constant in colour and texture a silk rug is not for you. Silk is very different to wool because not only is it softer to the touch but is constantly changing in texture a colour, almost like a living tapestry or painting. The main pattern naturally always remains constant but the texture and contrast of the silk is ever changing with use. This is of course why some people prefer them but it’s important to note the difference.


The rug, as shown in the pictures, has been carefully brushed to eliminate any aspect of variation in colour and texture in the nap for photography but in real life with use it will naturally vary in look for all the reasons previously described. You’ll also see that it looks darker from one end (more dark grey, mid grey and copper toned) and lighter from the other (more mid grey, light grey and gold) and this is the nature of all silk rugs.
