Beautiful Small Scatter Size Grey Antique Persian Malayer Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rug, Circa Date: 1920 – This striking antique Persian Malayer rug boasts traditional motifs and patterns we would normally expect to see in the antique Persian Tabriz rugs. Showcasing an exciting yet rare color scheme of greys, reds, salmon, light blues and browns, this beautiful small size antique Persian Malayer rug is one of the most decorative carpets one could hope to find.
The pallet mainly consists of neutral tones accented by brilliant and happy reds. This rare color combination gives it a feel as though it was woven about 100 years ago for today’s interior decorating trends.
The weavers chose such a modernist neutral color pallet and offset it incorporating classic traditional design patterns. This type of dichotomy is one of the most fascinating aspects of this grey antique Persian Malayer rug. It also makes this piece one of the most versatile antique carpets one could hope to find.
The beautiful and classic pattern is almost perfectly symmetrical both horizontally and vertically. Only the smaller tribal rug design motifs are used to break up the symmetry. This unusual and spectacular approach gives this small scatter size rug a strong sense of order and symmetry that we would normally associate with the the finer more floral Persian city rug industry productions.
The versatility of this jaw dropping antique Oriental carpet enables it to be used in many different interior design schemes as well as settings. The neutral earthy tones of this grey antique Persian Malayer rug are quite exciting yet subdued, this allows it to serve as a supporting decorative piece or as the main focal point in the room.
Regardless of how you choose to display and use it, this is one breathtaking Persian rug that could easily complement a traditional decor just as effortlessly as it could be incorporated in a minimalist Scandinavian design.
