Kalaty Carol Bolton Collection

Kalaty CB-889 Carol Bolton

If we had to choose just one single collection of all we have seen in the last few years that represents the best antique reproduction oriental rugs, it is easily the Kalaty Carol Bolton Collection.  Designer Carol Hicks Bolton’s unique combinations of color and texture, plus her love of antiquity are the basis for the entire collection. Kalaty has interpreted her ideas through a special production of high quality antique style rugs. And we are absolutely in love with them.

Carol got her start as a retailer of home furnishings Texas.  Furniture manufacturer, EJ Victor, took a special interest in how she would mix and match different fabric patterns and finishes to create an antique, eclectic look.  This was no coincidence.  In her own words, her style is all about layers, and creating and “old” look.  After partnering with EJ Victor to create an antique reproduction furniture line, they eventually also began working with Kalaty Rugs to produce a line of wonderfully done renditions of fine Persian masterpieces.

There are currently 20 beautiful designs within the collection, and each rug is like an heirloom, an exquisite relic from the past.  Premium hand spun New Zealand wool is treated with natural, vegetable dyes to create a soft, nubby texture and muted color. These exceptional rugs feature unequaled attention to detail through handwork, finishing, as well as careful hand distressing that infuses many of these rugs with the antique qualities for which Carol Hicks Bolton is renowned.

Kalaty CB-889While all of the Kalaty Carol Bolton Collecton rugs are outstanding, one design in particular reigns supreme in our hometown of Lexington, Kentucky.  The Bluegrass area is known for thoroughbred horseracing, the world’s finest bourbons, and small town atmosphere.  We love leather and hardwoods, and the CB-889 fits into our style perfectly.  This antique reproduction Serapi gives the absolute best look and feel of a true antique without the antique rug price.  We personally give the rug our stamp of approval as one of the best antique reproduction rugs out there.  Anywhere.  Period.

We love this collection and think you will too.  You can see them for yourself in our showroom, or click here to see them on our website.  THANK YOU to all of our wonderful customers for keeping us rockin’!
