This Malayer rug has a fascinating pattern that represents sections of a beautiful garden. The colors are earthy and include a range of browns, blues, and reds. The carpet is a fascinating piece that has characteristics of both a village rug and of one from a more formal carpet weaving center in an urban area. The formal layout of the garden carpet is a classic Persian design. The carpet has both horizontal and vertical symmetry. The pattern is reversed along the central plane with all of the florals facing towards the center. This gives the carpet a balanced feel and a well-defined focal point.
This carpet is the perfect match for today’s earth-inspired colors. It would be an excellent addition to layered carpets in a Boho chic interior. It would easily pair with accessories from natural materials, such as baskets and pieces that feature natural wood grain. The reds give it an old-world feel that would complement a touch of spice, such as cayenne red or spiced cider in the color scheme. This piece has an exotic feel that is soft and adds warm character to the décor.
It is an excellent antique rug if your style includes pieces that are a bit on the eclectic side. It would also add contrast in a room with modern furniture with minimal legs and plenty of open space underneath. Wherever you decide to place this piece, it will lend a tribal feel that is global and well-traveled.
