The interlacing “Kufic” border is strikingly authentic and beautiful. But the soft saffron and apricot coloration makes the carpet eminently well suited to contemporary decor.

The combination of these subtle but warmer color tones with the ghosty decorative elements of the design, almost give the antique Spanish room size area rug a summery and old world feel.

The use of the more limited color palette give it an authentically historic and romantic feel.
