1. Two Antique Village Weavings Reflect Rustic Ambiance of Log Cabin Mountain Retreat

Clients find that our selection of Northwest Persian styles is second to none. As you can see, the two antique rugs in this cozy room appear to have been made specifically for each space. Both the area-size Karaja near the door and the Heriz in front of the cobblestone fireplace are village weavings that immediately reflect the rustic ambiance of this log cabin mountain retreat through their timeless aesthetic. The time mellowed colors of each are in concert with the surroundings. Saffron gold spandrels speak in tandem with the natural wood tones and wicker chairs. Madder red fields counterbalance those predominant lighter hues and pick up on the other soft red accents in this warm and inviting dwelling. This masterfully balanced aesthetic has the potential to inspire immense enjoyment and inevitably foster fond memories for untold years to come.

2. The Elegantly Proportioned Artistry And Warm Camelhair Tones of Antique Persian Serab Carpets Add a Joyful Central Focus to This Grand Foyer

This image is from a whole home project in a massive lakeside family compound in the High Sierras. Very few carpets are equal to the grandeur of the most opulent and ambitious Beaux Arts-inspired interiors.  This very rare room-size antique Persian Serab camelhair rug handles this challenge with aplomb, brilliantly harmonizing the theme of light and dark that appears in the gilt-iron metalwork and lofty domed ceiling.  The 19th-century art carpet provides the tactile, human touch that beautifully softens the impact of each commanding decorative feature.

4. Outstanding Antique Hadji Jallili Tabriz Adds Magnificent Court Artistry To Engaging, Eclectic Contemporary Bedroom

Part of a 3-rug display around the master bed, this exquisitely woven, one-of-a-kind 19th-Century Hadji Jallili Tabriz adds fascinating counterpoint to the modern bedroom and the less formal village rug at the foot. At once capturing rapt attention, thrilling tones of emerald and blood orange shimmer in the filtered sunlight, achieving effortless fluency here not just within the rug’s elliptical, organic forms but also with the neighboring Camelhair Serab rug and the East Asian-inspired vases—never dominating, but inviting each to contribute to the dialogue. As perhaps the most formal piece in his collection, this connoisseur has situated this antique Persian city rug for easy viewing, where its exquisite drawing and nuances of ethereal color will provide an unending source of enjoyment and discovery.

5. Adding Palpable Whimsey, A Potently-Colored Antique Northwest Area-Size Rug Creates Delightful Synergy Within Collector’s Contemporary Dining Space

Given incredible magnetism and movement by its astounding array of tiny, individually scattered daisy flowers, this whimsical, quite unique 19th-Century piece woven in Persian Azerbaijan anchors a harmonious selection of curated pieces in this connoisseur’s modern home. The mid-century sculpture was intelligently and intentionally chosen to mirror these flowers, and also finds similar resonance in its shared artisanal quality, with each piece reflecting great investment of time and artistic insight. Even the table’s potted plant’s leaves mirror the small circular shapes in the rug. The contemporary Italian dining chairs reference the time-softened carnelian diamond at the heart of the carpet, drawing interesting comparisons between symmetry and asymmetry. The freeform spontaneity of Persian village art rugs such as this allows welcome creativity in their use: this seasoned art collector understands that a winsome piece such as this need not sit beneath a dining table, but shines even more brightly beside it.

6. Blending Soft Camelhair and Concentrated Color, Exquisite Hues of Captivating Antique Malayer Transform Light-Filled Contemporary Entryway

The magical combination of inherently luminous, lanolin-rich undyed camelhair and the creatively combined natural dyes of a circa 1910 antique Persian Malayer runner bring an upbeat, striking character to this graceful modern entry. Vivid flashes of mint green, cobalt blue and warm terracotta shine in this air- and light-filled white space. This short runner inspired the rest of the decorative choices for this space, acting as a textural and chromatic complement to the exquisite slate blue lacquer sunburst console and artisanal accessories on it. The depth of the camelhair’s rhythmically striated, understated negative ground expands this remarkable, welcoming tableau. Here, this rug-connoisseur homeowner took the rug’s three medallions and echoed them brilliantly with two other threesomes, the undulating Riflessi mirrors and the hand-blown glass statues creating a fascinating welcome for his guests. Like so many of the best Persian village runners, its size and proportions are especially versatile, enabling collectors with an eye for brilliant juxtapositions to bring deeply personal artistry into additional spaces in their homes.

7. Luminous Natural Camelhair of An Antique Serab Runner Transforms A Passageway Into A Destination

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.

10. Exceptional 19th-Century Area Size Bakshaish Camelhair Rug Creates Captivating, Contemplative Master Sitting Area

As carpet connoisseurs such as this couple have long realized, the perfect antique Persian rug can completely transform a room, elevating the experience of a space in a profound but unobtrusive way that is unique to this art form. The outstanding 19th century Bakshaish carpet seen in this couple’s Mediterranean-inspired desert home exemplifies this avidly prized effect, both complementing and anchoring the entire space. A highly inviting conversation area is established by its clearly defined, elemental composition, with a shimmering sky blue medallion providing a natural centerpiece. The coveted unadorned field of luminous camelhair, which is beautifully abrashed (intentionally color striated) instantly harmonizes with the cheerful soft golds of the walls, as well as the warm wood of paneling and shutters, as if the 19th-century folk art weaving was originally woven for placement in this genteel environment

15. Rare 19th-Century Persian Serab Camelhair Carpet Perfectly Matches The Preexisting Carpeting and Decor of This Grand Entry

This image is from a whole home project in a massive lakeside family compound in the High Sierras. The right antique art carpet is surprisingly easy to integrate into a pre-existing decorative scheme.  Here, the delicate latticework and soft camelhair tones of a superb 19th-century Persian Serab carpet pick up the gold scrolling hues of the stair carpeting for a completely integrated and distinguished effect.  The two textiles coexist beautifully, even though the 19th-century Serab carpet was a later addition to this space. See this stunning piece from the top of the grand staircase in the following interior.
