Striking 19th-Century Bijar (Bidjar) Persian Rug With Majestic Center Medallion Provides the Ideal Decorative Solution For Expansive Passageway In Traditional Home
This image is from a whole home project in a massive lakeside family compound in the High Sierras. Only particular Oriental carpets have sufficient character to ground a voluminous space and unify the panoply of color, textural treatments, and precious art and antiques in the grandest homes. This memorable sitting room ambitiously blends Dutch Delft tile work, shimmering marble, expertly wrought mahogany woodwork, green silk wall coverings and an antique European maritime painting. The addition of the 140-year-old Bijar (Bidjar) corridor carpet with its massive scale of design, clear complementary colors, and deep patina brings warmth and unity to the two sides of this vast parlor as it also acts as a splendid passageway rug.
