Antique Heriz Serapi Rugs are Smart and On-Trend Solutions to Home Design in 2015
Heriz Serapi Rugs — We’re now officially one week into 2015, which means that it’s time to get to work on those resolutions we prescribed ourselves while under the influence of the allure of a new year. It’s time to sign up for those gym memberships, make good on pledges to be kinder, and spruce up all the various aspects of our lives that need updating.
One of the best resolutions you can keep that will have a real impact on your lifestyle this coming year is an investment in your home. We spend a significant amount of time in our homes, and great quality of life depends on living in a space that feels inspiring and beautiful. Updating your home décor is a great way to get into a fresh new mindset and to take on the challenges and opportunities 2015 is sure to bring.
Updating your home often comes with a considerable investment, which is why it’s important when redecorating a room (or rooms) to keep in mind the longevity and timelessness of your home décor, as well as contemporary trends. Purchasing beautiful antique pieces that increase in value over time and are made to last is a fantastic way to ensure that your home design never feels overly trendy or quickly outdated. Our Antique Persian rugs at Nazmiyal Collection, especially those of the Heriz-Serapi and Bakshaish variety from Northwest Persia, are wonderful pieces to consider for your home for this very reason.
Omri Schwartz, General Manager of Nazmiyal Collection, states: “Heriz Serapi rugs are probably the most popular oriental carpets in today’s market, and with good reason: They exude a casual elegance that seamlessly integrates into and enhances both traditional and ultra-modern interiors,” Overseeing an inventory of thousands of antique rugs from a variety of origins, Mr. Schwartz is an expert on helping clients choose the perfect piece for their home, and often recommends carpets of the Heriz-Serapi variety. The reason, he states, is that “these rugs are extremely versatile, and work beautifully in a range of design schemes”. Since Serapi Heriz rugs come in an incredible variety of color, size, and pattern, finding one to fall in love with is easy.
Furthermore, these rugs are hand-made to last for centuries. They acquire a beautiful patina over time that can’t be matched by contemporary, machine-made imitations. Finally, current trends in interior design, which place an emphasis on large-scale patterning, and the mixing of antique and contemporary elements in a single space, make decorating with Heriz rugs and Serapi rugs a no-brainer.
The construction and diverse weaving patterns that can be found in antique Heriz-Serapi and Bakshaish rugs makes them an incredibly versatile type of rug for decorating. Because there is no one pattern that defines these rugs, their patterns can range from the more tribal side to the more classical end of the spectrum. Heriz-Serapi rugs can be very strictly composed, or can show more of the weavers’ “hand” in their idiosyncrasies and quirks; this variety allows antique Persian Serapi-Heriz rugs to work in many different styles of interiors.
Furthermore, antique Persian Heriz Serapi and Bakshaish rugs are incredibly resilient, and made to last: Our experts here at Nazmiyal and other antique rug scholars attribute their strength to the large amounts of copper in the water of Northwestern Iran, which makes the wool of the sheep who drink from there particularly durable. Hand-weaving also contributes to the strength of these gorgeous antique rugs, as each is made with the skill and care of a master artist, using only the finest natural dyes and yarns. Plus, because antique Persian rugs are made by hand, no two are the same; using an antique Heriz-Serapi rug in your home ensures that your space will look and feel uniquely yours.
While antique Persian rugs are great investments and truly never go out of style, the popular design trends for 2015 make these types of carpet particularly appropriate and enticing choices this year. Many design publications and high-profile decorators are forecasting 2015 to be a year of large-scale, bold patterns. These types of design motifs abound in antique Heriz Serapi carpets. Although patterns in these antique Persian rugs range from floral sprays to geometric designs, one aspect their patterns have in common is their boldness and vibrancy. This means that these rugs hold their own and make a statement, whether paired with ornate classical furniture, or sleeker more contemporary designs.
Another strategy for interior design that is projected to be popular in 2015 is the mixing of vintage or antique pieces with modern designs. This approach gives one’s home a unique look that is extremely narrative and customizable. Paired with contemporary design elements like polished metals, funky furniture, and chic minimalist accents, these rugs appear on-trend, yet un-fussy. Furthermore, the versatility of these rugs ensures that when your tastes change, the antique Heriz Serapi or Bakshaish rugs in your home will be easily adapted to new design schemes.
The key to following through with your 2015 goals is to remain inspired and energized long after the clock strikes midnight on New Years’ Eve. Investing in your home, and designing a space that revitalizes you and excites you is a fantastic way to stay motivated throughout the year. The beauty and longevity of antique Persian Heriz, Serapi and Bakshaish has been inspiring people around the world for centuries, and we at Nazmiyal are sure you will find them inspiring in your own home as well.
