Sigmund Freud shaped the twentieth century idea of what a person is; we would not recognise ourselves without him; his influence reverberates in Henry James and Virginia Woolf, Alfred Hitchcock and David Lynch, the art of the Surrealists and the lure of advertisements.
Draped over Freud’s psychoanalytic couch is an oriental rug, glowing in colours, displaying rich textures and it transforms the plain and simple couch into a fitting landscape for the retelling of dreams…..
This splendid Qashqa’i shekarlu rug covers the most famous piece of furniture in the world, Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic couch. The brilliantly coloured rug was made by one of the nomadic tribes of the Qashqa’i confederacy in Persia in the nineteenth century. Freud’s patients reclined on this rug recounting their memories, dreams and fantasies.
The new Freud MouseRug. The surrealism and magic of this oriental rug has been captured in our adaptation of the exquisite MouseRug.
