The paper displays the history of the emergence and development of music clubs in Tsarist Russia in the 18th and 19th centuries and the post-revolutionary period of the clubs' existence in Soviet Russia, examines the artwork of carpet makers (artist of tapestry, according to the accepted international terminology) who shape interior design of the concert halls, and provides an integral description of the concert hall in culture as a unity of the concert venue and a specific concert space. Owing to a significant historical event — the entry of Crimea and Sevastopol into the Russian Federation, the carpet becomes a means of self-identification for the people. In our time, the relevance and viability of tapestry is proved by the experience of modern architects, who do not abandon this type of creativity that has a thousand-year tradition and successfully use it in the interiors of modern architecture aiming to create a positive image. The involvement of cultural elements into modern the art is extremely relevant. Having entered the Russian legal and economic space, Crimea is at the same time included into the cultural area of Russia. A group of Russian artists, musicians, writers and environmentalists came up with the idea of creating a universal, multifunctional, innovative, cultural center of the new time in Crimea. The paper represents an attempt to give a comprehensive analysis of the activities of artists engaged in creating carpets and interiors of music clubs, in particular, clubs in the Crimea, in Yalta.
