Antique Persian Khorassan Rug, Country Of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: 1900 – Khorassan carpets represent a fine tradition of carpet weaving that goes back several centuries. This gorgeous piece is elegant and refined, and it has a bit more subdued character than one typically finds in carpets throughout the region. One of the things that distinguish Khorassan carpets is their formal sense of symmetry and color palette that gives them a gentle, delicate feel, as with this piece.
This carpet was produced around the turn of the twentieth century and has a fine weave that allows for an exceptional level of detail. The carpet uses a medallion pattern with a design that reflects similar motifs in the corners and throughout the borders of the carpet. This gives it a grounded and balanced appearance. One of the features that stands out about this carpet is the contrast between the ivory background and the gorgeous spicy colors in a medallion, corners, and borders. This gives it a light and airy feel that it will carry throughout the rest of the space.
This antique carpet is a larger piece. The scale of design, combined with the color of the background, will make the room appear larger and grander. This carpet could easily fill the space in a room with tall ceilings and larger architectural elements such as columns, or perhaps a floor to ceiling stone fireplace. It has an Oriental flavor that would make it perfect for a master bedroom for a Boho chic room where you want a bit more formal flavor.
The colors of this rug are reminiscent of the spices that were once exchanged along the ancient Silk Road. It has a garden theme, but the overall layout is reminiscent of a Chinese or Oriental influence. This would make it the perfect piece to complete a chinoiserie style room, or to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any room decor. This carpet could easily be paired with fine silks and exquisite brocade fabrics for a Parisian look. It would not be afraid to embrace a hint of gold. It is a luxurious and versatile piece that sparks the imagination and is the perfect base for creating a quiet sanctuary away from the rest of the world.
