10. 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.
