Nourison Nourmak, Julian Rectangular, Round, Runner Wool Rugs Review

Updated on January 13, 2015

Nourison European and Persian

Nourison Nourmak and Julian rugs comprise two different collections in terms of design and weaving techniques: both, however, are made by a human hand from pure wool. The differences, especially when viewed in light of the similarities, remind of the variety available in carpet flooring industry in general. Nourmak and Julian items look and feel completely different, yet they can serve similar interior design purposes while answering to diverging tastes in fashion and home making.

Nourmak stands out as a line of hand weaved flat rugs made with a trademark Nourison method that renders the surface vintage and antique looking. The selection replicate oriental Persian, Turkish and tribal patterns, but on occasion will display the West conceived Arts and Crafts aesthetic.

Julian carpets focus almost solely on open field botanical vines that spread across the pile in spacious symmetrical or otherwise rhythmic patterns. Let's take a closer look.

A collection of over twenty designs, Nourmak consist of less formal, more colorful than usual color schemes and ornaments; some of the items show distinct festive character. An important feature that distinguishes these rugs from the rest is the flat texture – no pile, which in effect makes them kilim type carpets.

Black, light gold, blue, red, and burgundy push away the more urban ivory and beige, leading to simple, unpretentious contrasts. Sharp, angular geometrical motifs in the form of rectangles, triangles, diamonds and stylized trefoils substitute the intricately winding cartouches and stars of such divisions as Nourison 2000 or India House.


A direct rival of Momeni Harmony rugs, Julian collection borrows the reflective hypnotic quality from Persian designs, and gives it a European twist by reducing the tension and simplifying the ornamentation.

Some models dispense with border altogether, appearing decidedly modern, others retain a single thick line to delineate the main field. The flowers are realistic, but it would take a gardener to figure out which is which; we managed to spot irises and dahlias. True to their transitional – thereby more open visually – nature, these Nourison rugs feature a wider-scoped palette, including but not limited to pitch black, persimmon, and lavender (violet) colors.
