Deck Your Halls With This $59K Oprah-Approved Turkish Rug From Nakkaş

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2014

It seems like no one is immune to Oprah's influence so when we saw that she is a client of Nakkaş, we paid attention. Thankfully, the Istanbul-based company has a wide array of beautiful hand-woven Turkish carpets and rugs (some 20,000 products that are priced as high as $260,000) to keep our interest past the initial peek. Their collection includes pieces that date as far back as the 17th century, featuring traditional Hereke, Konya, Kayseri, Sivas, Bergama and Uşak carpets. Promising that everything is one of a kind, Nakkaş even works with customers and interior designers to create on-off designs based on historical craftsmanship. That said, if you're looking for something to drop in your online shopping cart for the holidays, we suggest you go with the Hereke Sultani pure silk rug pictured above. Inspired by the "kaftans" (robes) worn by the Ottoman Sultans in Topkapı Palace, the rug features a "ton-sur-ton" design, which is the use of several different shades of the same color with one design, making it super difficult to weave—in this case, that's blue.
