Antique Persian rugs are universally recognised for the integral role they naturally play in contemporary and classic interiors. There is not a single beautiful home found to not to have placed at least one Persian rug in the interior. The Bauhaus School honoured textiles as one of its very first disciplines, emulating the extraordinary energy found in Persian and tribal weavings. In the full splendour in this soaring modern space, Imperial Rugs has carefully curated a trio of quintessential antique Persian carpets with an immersive, yet understated elegance.
We have worked with homeowners and interior designers for nearly 30 years to create the personal ambiance that makes an environment both individual and comfortable. Whether utilizing palace-size rugs or a suite of compatible smaller rugs in a stylized design, these are hand-woven artworks from the Second Golden Age of Persian Weaving (ca. 1800 to ca. 1910) that become personal design aesthetics for the homeowner and create an emotional and multi-dimensional space. The aged naturally dyed colours and captivating motifs of these 100-00 year-old pieces are as timeless as the atmospheres they create. Antique Persian rugs have not only served at city workshops, there were famous weavers from small villages and towns such as Sultanabad, Sarab, Farahan and so many others where beautiful antique Persian rugs were produced.
It is easy to assume that the recent mass production of fine Persian rugs in the workshops in different cities is ultimately responsible for demise of other Oriental rugs, however one must not undervalue the artistry and craftsmanship of Persian rugs weavers who have certainly indulged us over the past three centuries. God quality Persian rugs have always played huge parts in household’s decors. After many years of uncertainty it seems there is a burgeoning interest in fine Persian carpets whereby ancient skills associated with carpets are being revived just in time to prevent them from being lost forever.
The fair assumption is that, today, some of the best handmade silk and to some extend wool rugs are from cities of Qum, Isfahan, Tabriz and Kashan. Their complex designs and colour platters are as such that have been accepted all over the world and for this very reason their prices are quite high.
