(High-Decorative) Offering an accomplished use of color, this unique late 19th century Malayer rug also features rare small room size dimensions . Luminous flashes of soft sand in the understated medallion, broad corner pieces, and dovetailed triangles guide the eye into the heart of the space, where the sheer abundance of different patterns--some geometric, some organic--engenders rapt attention. The use of continually shifting turquoise and aquamarine is a singular and extremely effective accent that transforms the entire character of the carpet, establishing a completely new plane of movement and subtlety. In concert with deep ochre, russet and brick reds, the interplay between tones becomes just as rich and nuanced as the motifs themselves.
