Wassily Kandinsky

The warm brown shades in this custom rug from Kandinsky’s Gloomy Situation celebrate quality and simplicity. Balanced shapes and down-to-earth minimalistic elegance.

Kandinsky painted his artwork Gloomy Situation in 1933, the year in which the Bauhaus dissolved and he moved to Paris. The original artwork is at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, but you can have it as a custom rug in your very own home.

Numbered limited edition of maximum 100 fine handmade rugs with this art piece. Each rug comes with a sewn-on label with the artist’s signature image and numbered by hand, per order. When we have woven 100 rugs of this art piece, we will no longer offer this painting as a custom rug. If this art piece calls to you, we suggest you take your decision to buy now!

For environmental reasons and to provide our full bespoke service, our rugs are always made to order.

Delivery time for this rug is between 10 and 12 weeks, depending on the desired size and technique.

Almost 700 000 knots are woven by hand for this rug in the smaller size 240 x 170 cm (7.9 x 5.6 ft).

Please note that the sizes are not exact to the centimetre and there is always a 3% variation margin in sizes and colours, due to the completely handmade process and natural materials.
