38. Extraordinary Interplay of 19th-Century Persian City Rugs and Eclectic Art Collection Elevates The Contemporary Interior In An Entirely Singular Way

Ever since modern design’s beginnings at the turn of the 20th-century, antique Persian carpets have been universally recognized for the integral role they naturally play in these interiors.  Mies van der Rohe placed them throughout his own homes; even before this, the Bauhaus School honored textiles as one of its very first disciplines, emulating the extraordinary energy found in Persian and tribal weavings.  We see this perfect affinity in full splendor in this soaring modern space, where a carefully curated trio of quintessential Tabriz carpets animates these surroundings with an immersive, yet understated elegance.  Throughout, there is a harmonious interaction between the angular and the curvilinear. Note, for instance, the transformative way the central carpet’s surpassingly intricate scrolling designs mirror, dignify and enhance the stairway metalwork of a master artisan.  Further connections are brought out in painting and sculpture.  The John Dove painting and 13th-century map projection come alive alongside the sensitive organic contours of each carpet.  The work in glass shares the precise time-softened terra-cotta shade of the smaller Tabriz, creating a spirited collaborated.  Light grey wall coverings, so popular in contemporary homes, serve as the ideal canvas for this distinguished artistic display.

This tall-ceiling glass and steel urban condominium is powerfully enlivened by the potent natural colors and striking archetypal geometry of 19th-century collectible tribal and village rugs. Antique Caucasian rugs have long been appreciated by Modernist architects and designers for their highly complementary artistic approach. Both aesthetics are deeply concerned with a viewer’s direct engagement with the essentials of color and form, unmediated by the distractions of superfluous ornament. Here, the archetypal imagery of an exceptional Caucasian piece from the prized Bidjov Shirvan substyle instantly reveals this affinity. The decorative vertical flanges of the Mies van der Rohe-inspired building next door establish instant parallels with the signature radiating ivory motifs seen in the Caucasian rug: both orient the eye with the fewest possible elements. In a clever juxtaposition, a series of stuffed Caucasian grain bag cushions sit alongside a Le Corbusier-designed LC4 recliner–both examples of form in service of function.

When the sun sets, flickering firelight from the custom designed woodstove reveals entirely different nuances within the carpet’s intricate botanical design, to be savored at length over the course of an evening from the casual comfort of an overstuffed leather chair. Blonde wood paneling and beige ceramic tiles are given new resonance, taking on a heightened character alongside the exquisite time-softened patina of the masterful Court weaving, the result of their shared use of natural materials. Its unaffected expression of balance and harmony ensures the rug is immediately compatible within the adventurous modern minimalist aesthetic of this LEED certified home, just as it would be in a more traditional setting.

90. Ethereal Area Size Laver Kirman Rug Provides Harmonious Accompaniment to Wood Paneled Modern Music Room

An inviting ambiance of leisurely aesthetic appreciation is underscored by a sensational circa 1850 Persian Laver Kirman rug in this artist-designed Northern California home.  The area-size art carpet gem provides the perfect accompaniment to this casual, comfortable ensemble–against the backdrop of warm wood grain in wall, ceiling and custom-crafted grand piano. The luxurious jewel tones of garnet, bright celadon and ruby hold the viewer’s mesmerized attention from every point in this open performance space.  The effect resonates with every organic element in turn.- For instance, note how the rug’s unique rose petal medallion interacts with the fluid contours of the colorful blown glass light fixture above.  Like the environmentally respectfully homeowners and their LEED-certified architectural design team,  the antique carpet’s Court weavers drew their inspiration from a close, astute observation of the natural world.  An affinity for the beauty inherent in pure natural forms infuses every aspect of the carpet and the home.

91. Exceptional 19th-Century Laver Kirman Carpets Perfectly Harmonize and Enrich An Ambitious Modern Aesthetic

The inspired contributions of interior designer, architect and virtuoso antique Persian weaver are in perfect sync in this one-of-a-kind San Francisco Bay Leeds Certified contemporary home. In this open living and dining space, two extraordinary oversize Laver Kirman carpets set the stage for a surpassingly elegant, immersive experience that brings nature into all aspects of the design.  Clean, simple lines of warm wooden paneling and a sublime attention to nuanced finishes continues in the complementary Persian City carpets: both compositions that are the result of incredibly meticulous craftsmanship and a heightened sensitivity to color and patina. The profoundly organic sensibility of the rugs, which were woven using entirely natural materials and dyestuffs, is also clearly expressed by their delicate, keenly observed botanical motifs. The result is a purity and honesty of purpose that, like the artist-owner’s own cohesive, environmentally sensitive vision for the home, is impossible to replicate.

92. Extraordinary Oversize Dorasht Carpet Makes A Defining Statement In a Refined Entertaining Space

Grand dimensions, majestic scale of motifs, and the seldom-equaled grandeur of an elegant antique color palette against a clear ivory field allow this exceptional, virtually never produced large Dorasht to become the central foundation for this spacious parlour. Thanks to the exceptionally nuanced combination of rare ivory, periwinkle and oxblood colors and a floating overscale allover design, it effortlessly harmonizes  variety of rich fabrics (including flower print upholstery, golden damask drapes and shimmering silks.) Yet, the antique rug’s majestic visual impact never overpowers, instead permitting the delicate brush effects of the small American Impressionist painting to be equally well appreciated.  As guests move about from grand piano to bridge table to wingback chair, this immersive mid-19th century art rug makes the large room seem intimate and inviting.

Adding visual dimensionality and nuance through a sophisticated interplay of colors and forms, the rug’s unadorned blonde toned field, awash with natural striation of the undyed camel wool, supports a seemingly floating, blossom-covered medallion.

The intensely creative, stylized botanical patterning of a  19th century Persian Sultanabad carpet with a seldom-encountered ivory field unifies the colors, finishes and forms of the dining area of this inventive contemporary Southern California home.  Drawing from its expansive, harmonious palette of rarely combined colors, the Sultanabad’s glowing neutral ground resonates immediately with the polished exotic woods of the table and dovetail-joined sliding door, then contributes warm tropical accents that, like the fresh oranges in the butlers’ pantry, seem naturally at home in the sunlit space.  Abundant accents of rare teal green support the custom upholstery and lighting, but most subtly connect with the space’s natural contributors: the lush foliage of palm and orchid within the room, and the garden outside.  The Sultanabad’s versatile large-scale allover pattern effortlessly accommodates this activity, adding its own elegant, keenly observed floral vinery to intensify the casually dramatic atmosphere.

The compelling artistry of this 19th century Persian Camelhair Serab runner immediately captures the attention of both the homeowner and her guests, turning the passageway of this luxurious high-rise condominium into an inviting environment for gathering and aesthetic enrichment. This undyed Camelhair rug’s glowing palette of luxurious earth- and jewel tones perfectly complements the paired abstract paintings, and establishing an enlivened dialogue between the two creative media. The inner luminosity of extremely lustrous, supple camelhair more than compensates for any absence of natural light in the space, and harmonizes beautifully with the warm wooden bookcases and floors. Rare ivory accents appear to float in space within the enigmatic, faceted geometric design, subtly bringing out the cream-colored molding and further harmonizing the entire scene.

An exceptional, early Persian Laver Kirman rug becomes the essential link in realizing the artful, nuanced vision for a casually elegant entertaining space of this Spanish colonial home. The homeowner, an accomplished collector of traditional art and antiques, immediately realized how the carpet’s complex design and understated colors would quietly anchor the diverse textures and hues of her ambitious design, and used one-of-a-kind pieces as the foundation for a comprehensive aesthetic. Redoubled by an abundance of natural light, the time-softened hues and natural patina of the rug effortlessly harmonizes the varying tones of terracotta tile, polished exotic woods and luxurious cream colored brocade fabrics. Note closely how the Court carpet’s intricate botanical pattern brings out the contours in a candelabra or the leg of a Louis XIV chair, while instantly creating a bridge to the cut flower centerpiece and the effusive tropical foliage of the garden outside. The antique rug seamlessly mingles indoor and outdoor: as they pass between spaces, guests are continually greeted by new vantages, unified by the carpet’s magnetic presence.

100. Extremely Rare 150-year-old Sultanabad Carpet Introduces A Novel, Harmonious Dimension To Contemporary Design

The unusually spacious allover field design of this one-in-the-world, antique ivory Sultanabad carpet brings a powerful level of richness to this sleek modern bedroom of a cutting-edge contemporary Los Angeles home.  The mid-19th century carpet’s beguiling, entirely spontaneous botanical composition is a welcome and captivating counterpoint to the straight lines and open simplicity of the architecture. The very seldom-encountered soft ivory ground possesses an openness and quiet cohesion that, like the decor, holds no extraneous elements.  Virtuoso attention to texture and color awakens the viewer’s eye to the equally nuanced handling of these attributes by the architect, were carefully selected exotic woods, clean off-white walls and flagstone hearth are also used to create dramatic, compelling effects.  Note the immediate interrelationship between the stylized botanical motifs of the Sultanabad carpet and the expansive gardens beyond–the shared organic forms create an instant connection between indoor and outdoor spaces.

101. 19th-Century Allover Village Carpets Give Perfect Expression To The Natural Inspiration That Drives Early 20th-Century American Design

Three highly complementary late 19th-century Sultanabad carpets enhance the underlying “form follows function” theme in this newly built central California oceanside home.  Like the Frank Lloyd Wright-styled architecture and Craftsman hardwood furniture, the carpets’ elegant, casual allover patterns present the elements of the natural world reduced to their essentials.  Intricate, tiny flowerheads reveal their own indivisible symmetry, then expand into a broader relationship with the fluid garlands and lattices of a larger design, as if seeking the light in this airy, high-ceilinged family space.  Because no superfluous ornamentation is present, each balanced line and whimsical flourish of soft, nuanced color can be enjoyed comfortably and without pretense–nothing distracts from the natural materials and supreme workmanship displayed.  The best 19th-century carpets often have this effect on an open floor plan, bringing together connected spaces, warm woods and fabrics and natural light into a cheerful, inviting grand space designed for living.  Though the artistic heritage of each piece is well over a century old, the assemblage is fresh, contemporary and timeless.

A high-collectible, 175-year-old allover Sultanabad carpet with an extremely rare leaf green toned ground and ethereal large-scale allover pattern creates the essential foundation for the quiet, contemplative atmosphere in this contemporary master bedroom. The profound sense of movement and depth of the Sultanabad adds a subtle but pervasive energy that animates the entire space: not only does the room appear much more expansive, but each of the other paintings and carpets are heightened, with unexpected interrelationships discovered between every piece. The central role of adjacent light and dark colors becomes evident in each work:  Mediterranean landscape painting,  circa 1850 Caucasian Lesghi rug displayed on the wall, still life and Degas-inspired ballet scene. Uncluttered, minimalist furnishings permit the nuanced, well-chosen color to be appreciated without distraction, resulting in an unmediated, one-on-one encounter between artwork and viewer.
