Nourison 2000 Handmade Wool Area Rugs and Carpets Review

Updated on January 13, 2015

Nourison 2000

The titular 2000 collection is Nourison's most popular and among its most versatile within the department of traditional rugs. All designs feature traditional elements: a clearly defined border with its own inner ornament (band), and a field, which includes an allover pattern, a large medallion, or a combination of the two – classic Persian configuration. The occasional European variations rely on the same basic scheme, but leave more free, non-ornamented space.

Ivory, black, and burgundy tones, supported by such neutral colors as beige and olive green create strong contrasts that can rarely be found in Momeni oriental rugs; Nourison stands out by willingly employing a range of less familiar, more obscure provincial Persian ornaments. Nourison 2000 includes over 50 models, all hand tufted from New Zealand pure wool with pure silk accents. The silk enriches the texture of the rugs, and renders them a more weighty visual quality.

Round and Oval Rugs

Nourison 2000 area rugs appear in round, oval, runner, and classic rectangular shapes, addressing a range of interior design and decoration needs. When faced with such designs as Tabriz or Kashan, which rely on differently sized round and oval shaped palmettes and floral motifs, the availability of round and oval rug models can be particularly helpful: when the shape of the carpet matches its inner elements, the result can sometimes be especially harmonious and pleasing to the eye.


Though oriental patterns clearly dominate the Nourison 2000, European ones distinguish themselves by offering a clear visual alternative. Western aesthetic usually avoids the luscious intricacy of Persia, opting instead for larger, often architecturally inspired motifs: a large medallion, flanked from four sides by pendants, or simple linear allover patterns.

Perhaps the difference can be perceived best in dance terms – oriental rugs, like a belly dance, show a complex rhythm of many small movements, whereas European carpets seem to waltz.
