Decorating A Room with Antique Khorassan Rugs
Antique Khorassan Rug – If you are setting out to decorate an interior space with an antique Khorassan rug, you’ve already made one great decision. Antique Khorassan rugs have been a widely admired and collected antique rug style since as early as the Late Middle Ages.
Between the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries, rugs made in Khorassan were considered to be among the most beautiful rugs in the world. By the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Khorassan grew into a major modern center for the manufacture of high quality, room size rugs.
Rugs made in the Khorassan style may feature an allover pattern, a classic central medallion, or any other number of different design elements. Khorassans do have a tendency to feature softer, earthier palettes than other Persian rugs, but this also not an across-the-board sort of rule.
The beautiful antique Khorassan rug featured in the picture above, impeccably placed in a wonderful room designed by Lisa Bartolomei, is a wonderfully representative piece that effectively showcases the powerful presence of fine Khorassans.
A pale border flanks a blue field in a lovely contrast that the designer here has used to a tremendously positive effect, using light, monotone furniture to further bring out the lovely blue, highlighting its beauty and ting the entire room together.
Decorating with antique Khorassan rugs presents a multitude of opportunities similar to this, as these timelessly beautiful rug are sure to bring unparalleled elegance and sophistication to any space.
