Needlepoint Rugs

A short hop from Spain to Portugal. A navy field is closely filled with a millefleurs pattern around a bold octagonal medallion. The Arriolos factory (and others) in Portugal made a specialty of attractive wool needlework carpets. This rug has as vaguely Louis XIII flavor, but really it stands on its own. The complex pattern makes a striking contrast to simplified contemporary décor. This definitely a non-(or anti-) minimalist carpet. Try maximalist.
