A Parting Piece of Knowledge…
Celebrated for their rich hues and intricate designs, Persian rugs are steeped in tradition and represent some of the oldest types of carpets in the world. Dominant hues tend toward reds and other jewel tones, and weaving patterns typically feature geometric motifs and framed borders. These rugs were highly valued by ancient Persian rulers; Cyrus the Great’s tomb is said to have been covered in Persian rugs, and other leaders were credited with fostering new styles and turning Persia into a major player in the global rugs market. Today, designers rely on them to add a sense of history to traditional and modern spaces alike.
