George Bashian founded Bashian Rugs in 1931, at the height of the Great Depression. Many Americans couldn’t even afford food and clothing, let alone luxurious, imported floor coverings. Despite the harsh economic climate, Bashian Rugs prospered — thanks in large part to Bashian’s remarkable ability to spot designs that deeply resonated with the public. Today George Bashian Jr. runs the family business, which offers wool and silk floor coverings imported from China, Nepal, India, Iran, and Pakistan. Chinese decorative painting, geometric shapes, European textiles, and architecture are among the many sources of inspiration for Bashian's hand-knotted, hand-tufted, hand-loomed creations. Popular series include the Chelsea — bright-colored rugs featuring contemporary designs and a subtle abrash — and the Wilshire's tufted styles made from New Zealand blended wool. Bashian’s one-of-a-kind rugs will bring opulence to any room and stand the test of time.
Eye-catching prints rule the day in this collection of exquisite handmade floor coverings. No matter which you choose, you can rest assured that these rugs will redefine a room — and stand the test of time.

Designer and stylist Jeremiah Brent has created candles that go way beyond the burn — they’re nothing less than works of art. Each is hand poured into a gold-mirrored glass tumbler, which Brent personally designed. (The luxe, metallic look is especially suitable for this festive time of year.) And the scents — choose from Fig, Rose, and Fire, each rendered in hand-poured soy wax — are nothing less than sublime. Find these candles here, along with a host of other stylish items Brent chose from the Gilt Home coffers, to inspire you to complete your space (yes, these candles are worth building a room around!)
