Large Scale Blue Background Antique Persian Khorasan Area Rug, Woven in: Persia, Rug Date: 1900 – Branching arabesques decorated with intricate leaflets and delicate flowers create an elegant allover pattern representing the fluidity and effortless elegance that weavers in Khorassan accomplish so masterfully. The classic color palette centering on a triad of oxidized Persian blue, beige and burnt sienna, which is set over a saturated blue field, creates a stately result while softly oxidized borders and earth-tone guard bands add a touch of levity to the regal and expertly rendered arabesque. Created circa 1900, this luxurious high end area rug is adorned with contrasting outlines, a stunning array of complementary colors and subtle details that contribute to its stunning appearance.
Regal and stately, this impressive large antique Persian Khorassan rug brings a sense of richness to any room. This magnificently artistic antique Persian rug was woven in the early part of the 20th century and reflects refinement in this choice of color and design.
The colors chosen for the design of this Khorasan rug are set against midnight blue background. This creates the feeling of a nighttime garden kissed by moonlight. The tans, blues, grays and mellow reds of the antique large size rug provide contrast, but do so in a way that is not overpowering to the eyes. The balance and harmony of the Persian Khorasan rug is further emphasized by its horizontal and vertical symmetry.
Although this highly decorative antique Persian Khorasan carpet uses a central motif, it is not pronounced like a central medallion rug design would be. This makes it far easier for people to place within a room’s interior decor, as there is nothing in the design that would make it difficult to center it. In addition, portions of the central motif can be seen in partial rendition on the ends, giving it the appearance that it is a repeating pattern, not a true central medallion.
The use of harmonious colors in this large size blue color background antique Persian Khorasan rug creates an organic, natural feel, but it still retains its formality by using a repeating pattern and formal placement of the individual floral elements. This remarkable antique area rug from Khorassan is beautifully executed in a way that makes it elegant, yet not overstated. It is a beautiful addition to any traditional or formal design scheme with its deep, rich tones and bold floral elements.
