Historically used within Buddhist prayer halls, these long Tibetan carpets were once wrapped around structural columns to adorn and insulate the interior. Intended to be hung on either side of a column, these carpets are designed in complement to one another, so that the decorative elements flow seamlessly around the entire pillar.

Hand-knotted of plush Tibetan wool, this pair of vibrant column carpets is decorated with two sinuous golden dragons against a field of dark blue-black. Auspicious creatures of protection and power, these dragons once swirled around a column as benevolent guardians of the monastery. Meant to be seen from a distance and to animate a space with their spirit, these rugs have a graphic design that looks incredible as an area carpet or wall hanging.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
