The carpet uses a tiled, repeating motif that is consistent throughout the field and border of the carpet. The scale of the design gives it a delicate, dainty effect that offsets the sense of scale created by the brilliant red color.

It could also be used to add interest and a touch of color to a contemporary design. This carpet could easily be used to add a point of contrast in any design style.
The choice of color, the scale of the design, and consistency in the design motifs give this carpet a traditional feel.
