(Featured in catalog Vol. 28, No. 1, p.6) A wide spectrum of our clients use exceptional smaller rugs to enrich the depth of their home’s ambiance, strategically displaying singular pieces. This standout 140-year-old Persian Serapi is one such carpet, offering glorious hues that will immediately captivate the viewer and animate either a space. A profusion of shimmering golds join exquisite sapphire and sky blues, particularly in the virtuoso medallion where this duo of unexpected, rare tones interacts to stunning effect. The inventive abrash color shifts in its radiant terra-cotta to scarlet reserve bring compelling dynamism to a brilliantly cohesive, perfectly balanced design.
