Rustically Vibrant Vintage Persian Tekke Design Silk Rug, Country / Origin / Rug Type: Vintage Persian Rugs, Date Woven: Vintage – This vintage Persian rug features the extremely recognizable design of Bokara rugs. The somewhat iconic Bokara and Tekke design rugs are usually found in the Caucasian rugs not the Persian rugs – such as this one. This leads us to believe that it was more than likely a custom ordered area rug that was created specifically for someone who loved and wanted the tribal patterns that we find in the Caucasian and Central Asian area rugs. The only difference is that this vintage rug was woven in Persia as opposed to the Caucuses.
The rustic, geometric, all over and more tribal approach to the rug design make it a great addition to a wide range of interior design styles and approaches. The geometry, symmetry and relative use of a more limited color palette make rugs such as this one easy to fit in any modern, traditional or mid century modern design. It would even feel right at home with any Scandinavian or even Bauhaus design where you expect to see magnificent furniture designed by some of the more iconic mid century modern designers.
In addition to all the mentioned above, this piece could be used as a transitional area rug where you may want to bridge the gap between the tribal and refined as well as the more antique vs the more modern. That is what makes versatile area rugs such as this Persian Tekke design area rug so desirable. Not only do they change and enhance the interior design instantly, they are also so easy to work with and tend to work almost anywhere you choose to plop them. That is what makes these rugs some of the best to work with and around.
