Impressive Blue Background Antique Persian Sultanabad Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa date: 1890 – Sultanabad holds a unique place in the world of Persian carpets. Until 1808, it was known as the city of Arak. The area has a long history of rug making, with many of the pieces originating in small villages throughout the region. This exquisite example of a tribal rug features graceful, sweeping lines and bold colors that give it a formal feel.
The gorgeous midnight blue background of the rug is one of the first things you notice about this piece. Its classic blue and red color palette is accented by creams and tans that make a statement anywhere you choose to use it. It uses an all-over design with a repeating motif that adds to its elegance and grace.
This rug was more likely to have been produced in a village, rather than by a larger carpet production. Carpets made in the formal weaving centers are often more precise in their execution than those made with more primitive equipment in the smaller villages. This gives the rugs a human touch and connection with the people who created them.
Pieces that have a connection to humanity is a trend that is becoming more popular. Designers are moving away from pieces that have a mass-produced look toward those that show the touch of human hands. This piece has elegance, charm, and will create a welcoming touch to your home or office. The almost square shape of the rug makes it perfect for a conversation area or as the foundation for a home office or creative space.
Persian rugs are classics that make a perfect way to instantly give the room a sophisticated feel. This piece was created in the 1890s and would be perfect for a room of period furniture or in a room that is a mix of antiques and contemporary pieces. It has a timeless feel and gives a classic look to any space where you choose to use it. We encourage you to contact our team if you have any questions, and we will be glad to help.
