Our clients appreciate that our collection consistently offers the unexpected and enrapturing, such as this unfathomably detailed rug in the esteemed Tehran style. We have never seen the treasured guli farang (“foreign flower”) expressed in quite this way. Each sheltered rose bouquet is set off by just the right amount of indigo outline to create a perfectly balanced field that is both quiet and staggeringly beautiful. Based in citrine, the shimmering main border holds its own delicate cascade of pinpoint flowers.The fineness of weave is a palpable part of the experience of this rug's beauty and at 150-years -old it offers the riches of significant abrash.
