(High-Decorative) Capturing the attraction to softer, more nuanced hues seen most frequently in 19th century Persian rugs, this 150-year-old Serapi offers a delicate color palette exploring a range of atypically light hues and greens that creates a striking individuality. From a weaving tradition known for saturated earth and sky tones and powerful geometry, this artistic piece is elegant and graceful, while retaining the over-scale drawing and magnificent medallion design of the region. Aqua, sage and steel blue play a secondary role and work together to bring absolute balance to this antique carpet that would easily unify any space it decorates. Learn About This Rug Type
