Persian carpets are featured in the most recent popular media and magazines as the foundation of many different modern styles. They are the core of styles ranging from Boho chic to traditional formal settings.

Over time, the designs changed as tastes changed. However, more recently, pieces based on more traditional designs have once again become popular.
This vintage carpet uses traditional motifs, including cloud bands, and a range of traditional floral designs in an all-over pattern.
