("New Arrivals Gallery") The mountainous region of Dorasht in northeast Persia has an illustrious history of carpet weaving dating back to the late 16th century, a pedigree that shows in the distinctive weavings that survive to this day. This stunning carpet features an astonishingly intricate allover pattern of idealistic swirling vinery laden with realistic blossoms of varying scales juxtaposed in a melodious splendor. The diversity of species represented here is staggering. This magical gardenscape continues into the border where the most exquisite renditions of irises can be found tilting at slight angles among a fantasia parade of botanical delights. Ravishing, naturally wrought jewel-toned colors sparkle with unrestrained magnificence, shading the subtle nuances of every leaf and polychrome bloom. This distinguished, nearly century-and-a-half-old Dorasht carpet is an exemplary choice for rooms with formal decor that demand an equally eloquent floor covering for harmonious effect. It would be tempting to place this masterpiece on the wall for a stunning tapestried backdrop for rooms with high ceilings.
