(High-Decorative) The pattern of this understated, earth-toned runner relies on a two-tiered arrangement of lobed flower heads ascending the field with a weightless presence that is surrounded by an ordered array of flame-like crimson rosebuds. Each element in this piece is very attentively rendered. Framing this elegantly casual field with its complex precision, an undulating, innovative main border “chain” pattern varies the dimension with a simple, single bud on a stem within each link. The ornamented portion of the rug is surrounded by three accent borders and a final wide swath of ever shifting shades of undyed natural camelhair. Camelhair runners, such as thjs, offer a subtlety and elegance that is often the needed ambiance in today’s homes. Learn About This Rug Type
