This beautiful Oriental carpet was woven using both silk and wool and the silk highlights really pop against the richer blue and red coloration. It is this juxtaposition that gives this magnificent modern Persian Isfahan rug a really fresh and updated look. The rich red field is filled with beautifully outlined floral arabesque designs that seem to flow effortlessly. Though this rug is filled with intricate vine scrolls and floral patterns, we also see quite a bit of negative space. This unusual amount of “empty” spaces give this modern Persian Isfahan tug a much more open (and not “busy”) feel that we are not accustom to seeing.
The contrasting cool and darker blue tones, that frame the warm red field, create a beautiful flowing sense of transition. As if moving from dusk to night and back again, the stark contrast is reminiscent of the silhouettes created at dusk.
When viewed separately, each specific design element and pattern, within this modern Persian rug, is just as magnificent as the rug as a whole. This is indicative of the fact that when this Isfahan rug was woven, so much attention was paid to even the smallest of details.
