The art of antique Oriental carpets stems from a milieu that valued the enlivening effect age-old patterns have on the psyche and emotions. The Asmalyk wedding trapping from the Central Asian Turkoman Yomut tribe on the right wall reveals a dynamic chevron pattern while the unadorned camelhair field of the small 19th century Bakshaish rug draped over the ottoman in the foreground imbues a calm, earthy ambiance. The 19th century Persian tribal Afshar bag face on the far left wall adds additional interest.
