Carpet Interiors by Farid Rasulov

I have a confession to make!!! I have been obsessing over the Farid Rasulov installations for a while now!!! His installations are not minimal at all and very unlike me to like right?…. Well….I don’t what’s come over me… but I really am considering converting one of the rooms in my house into something inspired by him?

 The thing with Rasulov’s installations is that you’re surrounded by the familiar (chairs, tables and well rugs, rugs, and more rugs) and yet there’s something wonderfully off!! Something a bit crazy yet magical about the space. If I decide to devote a space like this in my house I will have to be a hundred percent committed or otherwise it just wouldn’t work!!!! As you can see below Rasulov took simple everyday interiors and covered every inch (and I mean every single inch) in traditional Azerbaijan carpet patterns, from floor to ceiling, from doors to bookshelves, right down to the individual books. Look at the details of the accessories like the flower arrangements, the plants and the chandeliers… The only point of contrast in his works are the minimal all-white sculptures of living creatures, like dogs, lions, birds etc that he places within.….

So? What do you think? Should I convert one room in my minimal home into a piece of art instead of putting art in it?
