Beautiful and Tribal Vintage Shabby Chic Persian Gabbeh Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century – Breaking away from traditionally simplistic shapes, this wonderful Persian Gabbeh rug uses angular lines and rigid movements to recreate scenes in nature. Striking perennials and branching stems make up the majority of the background, their presence evident in every section of the vintage rug. Darker colors of this Shabby chic rug define the primary palette, and the beautiful Stygian black and midnight blue tones create ample points of contrast against lighter instances of cream and red. The vast majority of the composition is designed to lead the viewer’s eyes along the borders before bringing the attention back to the core of the Persian rug, where the activity picks up in a flurry of shapes and colors. Two primary oval shapes stand out at the foreground of the rug’s center, themselves home to a beautiful field of flowers meant to entice and attract attention.
