This truly remarkable antique Persian rug features asymmetrical design of Shah Abbas palmettes that is focused around a central motif. This element is used stylistically in the same manner as one would typically find a medallion, only the medallion is not present. This has the effect of drawing the eyes outward to the edges of the carpet, rather than focusing the attention on the center. This artistic treatment of the design creates a sense of space that is enhanced by the size of the motifs in comparison to the overall size of the rug.
The intricacy of the design is another element that reflects the artistry and skill that went into making it. This classic rug design is versatile and would make a magnificent addition to a traditional design and architectural elements that are on a grand scale. The floral elements use shades of brown and rusty red that both add contrast, yet are harmonious with the dark blue background.

It is a beautiful antique room size rug that would be the perfect addition to add a hint of sophistication and elegance to the interior design of almost any decorating approach.
