(High-Decorative) A refined art rug, this 135-year-old antique Tabriz rug offers exquisite, technically masterful color striations through a rug technique called abash. This superb carpet would be a mesmerizing counter point for either a very minimalist contemporary space or the subtle underlayment for a richly textured traditional home. Its vegetal dyed, metals-inspired palette stresses prized tones of bronze, copper and gold that is avidly desired today. Taupe and warm earth tones, such as ochre and jade, rarely seen in Persian carpets, are here in abundance. The intricate, quietly nested concentric design reveals the Persian renown weaving skill. This fascinating Tabriz inspires countless avenues of expression for choosing fabrics or furniture. Learn About This Rug Type
