Persian Serapi Antique Rug in rustic dining area Chicago Illinois Lake House

Sunny Pastel Colors of a 19th-Century Serapi Carpet Welcome Guests To A Lakeside Home

FEATURED IN OUR NEW BROCHURE, Vol. 29, No. 1. Soft, cheerful pastel tones of this superb Serapi village carpet create an instantly welcoming, casual atmosphere in the breakfast room of this sunny Great Lakes summer home.  Like the bright wooden architecture, the Serapi is not rustic, yet retains and stresses a strong connection to nature through its skillful mastery of natural materials and dyestuffs.  The resonance between the carpet’s soft blues and the lake beyond reveal the antique weaver’s deep awareness of the natural world, and further helps to connect the inside and outside spaces.
