(Connoisseur-Caliber) The town of Ferahan Sarouk was a well established center for meeting the fine carpet needs of domestic and international aristocracy throughout the 19th century. A signature ambiance of graciousness, that combined grand formal elements with natural spontaneous fluidity, sets this carpet style apart. Remarkable in both its artistry and design, this highly preserved connoisseur caliber piece exemplifies this zenith of Ferahan Sarouk design. Every part of this carpet reflects a virtuosic control of artistic elements, based on an acute understanding of the effect a grand rug can have on an interior. One discovers a vast array of flowers, a mesmerizing medallion, and remarkable balance and harmony between the intense field and cavernous, languorous meander border. Note the congenial relationship between the sinuous organic contours of medallion and ivory spandrels that comfortably circulate together. Learn About This Rug Type
