Tommy Hilfiger Opens East Hampton Store

Designer Tommy Hilfiger has opened up an East Hampton storefront which will be his 10th freestanding location in the US. The store has been decorated in a style fitting of both Hilfiger design and the local East Hampton area. The Persian rugs we see in the photos are on top of a herringbone oak floor. We'd definitely have to see better pictures of each rug to say what each is.  We would venture to guess the big orange one could be a new Indian interpretation of a oushak design. They're often washed 3+ times to get high luster and a deep bright orange.  It could also be a Moroccan rug or Gabbeh, but gabbehs usually aren't made that large as they're typically a nomadic weave made by the Qashqa'i. The smaller 4' x 6' carpet is probably Turkish or Persian, seen in the second photo below. 

It's interesting that retailers are begining to integrate oriental rugs into their decor.  We visited a local clothing shop not too long ago where a patchwork rug was out on the floor.  They can be found on ebay for around $2,000 in a 10' x 15' size, but if you're the governor of NY , you can have 2 for $21,000.
