1. 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.

2. Bijar (Bidjar) Carpet Pair Fills A Formal Interior With Unexpected, Dynamic Energy

This image is from a whole home project in a massive lakeside family compound in the High Sierras. Persian carpets have long been associated with Old World formal interiors, where their luxurious elegance effortlessly complements and enhances European design. Though this compatibility is well known, the transformative impact that expertly selected, top-tier 19th-century antique rugs have often comes as a welcome surprise, even to seasoned aesthetes. Note how the medallions of these two 19th-century Persian Bijar (Bidjar) rugs, each intentionally positioned slightly off-center, appear to levitate in their own distinctly different way. The winged medallion of the larger piece appears to soar, while the nearer rug seems to vibrate within its narrower, more confined smaller space. The two rug’s structured symmetry and dynamism creates a living energy that radiates along the corridor, becoming a mesmerizing focus of attention.

4. Using Open Modern Architecture To Its Fullest Potential, Captivating Caucasian Kuba rug and Persian Bijar Runner Have a Fascinating Conversation

The open plans of contemporary architecture are ideal for displaying art carpets and, from a collector’s perspective, enhances the viewing options and the magical interplay of artistic impulses between one-of-a-kind pieces. The color synergy of the 19th-Century Caucasian Kuba in foreground and Persian Bijar in this passageway share midnight indigo fields as a saturated backdrop on which jewel-like diamond explore the most nuanced aquamarine, celadon, garnet and cerulean in turn, arriving at remarkably similar yet entirely personal aesthetic statements. When presented in the light-filled setting of this connoisseur’s modern home, the interaction of the dynamic asymmetry within each of  the two pieces captures a uniquely expressed, yet shared playfulness becoming more memorable together. In this particular space five pieces can be enjoyed in a stroll from the entry to the living room.

5. Modern Home Design Attains Incredible Impact Through The Uniquely Collaborative Energy of Antique Area Rugs

Contemporary design and art-level Caucasian and Persian geometric rugs share an affinity that is dramatically expressed in passageways, where the strikingly potent color of multiple rugs and their earthy ambiance are more unmistakable viewed in concert. Here, the lofty white walls and blonde hardwoods provide “less is better” aesthetic that quietly emphasizes the electric exuberance of the rugs. The Karaja in the foreground fully explores mint and emerald green in its potent, unaffected design, while the Bijar in background showcases the impressive versatility of multi-medallion 19th-century pieces for hallway display. When combined with virtuoso art in other media, the effect is transformative: this collector’s exceptional John Bracken collages have been especially chosen to hang above these weavings. Though entirely different in material and era, an equally evocative Simon Gaiger sculpture in steel shares an easy, enrapturing affinity with the rugs that surround it.

7. Elegant Grandeur of Traditional Persian Bijar (Bidjar) Rug Ideally Complements Passageway in Mountain Estate

This image is from a whole home project in a massive lakeside family compound in the High Sierras. The exquisite coloration and graceful contours of a quintessential 19th-century Persian Bijar (Bidjar) carpet are immediately compatible within this luxurious high-mountain residence, which draws heavily on European influences in its architecture and antique furnishings. As would be expected in a grand Old World estate, the showpiece home includes numerous antique Persian carpets in the styles most avidly coveted by affluent English, French, German and Swiss buyers during the 19th-century. It is easy to see why such carpets remain so popular in grand homes: the 140-year-old Bijar (Bidjar) rug brings a poised compositional balance and genteel appreciation of natural color that supports the elegant stonework, paneling and porcelain on display, while also adding its own entirely unique aesthetic contribution.

8. Majestic Camelhair Bijar Carpet Brings Luminosity And A Stately Ambiance To Personal Haven

The linear shape of this rare Persian Bijar camelhair room size carpet fits perfectly in front of the master bed in this high-ceilinged space. 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. Lapis blue glass vases and silk pillows augment the enjoyment of this rare rug’s splendid cerulean corner pieces, while its copper toned border “talks” to the Gauguin-inspired Polynesian scene above the hearth creating a secondary chromatic interaction that enhances the visual splendor. The grandeur of the 140 year old, classic Bijar reflects and supports the room’s noteworthy architectural elements, including its beamed ceiling and carved mantle.
