Curator's Notes

Motifs
  • A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, this medallion centerpiece design was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers
  • Twin pendants flank a central medallion
  • A crosshatched fade from gentle wear over time produces a soft, distressed look, muting the original color palette
  • Classic and timeless Persian motifs feature intricate patterns and floral designs, all framed by a border
  • The corners of the rug are heavily ornate
  • A larger border is flanked by two smaller borders
  • A simple, open field pops in contrast with the rug’s more complex borders
Region of Origin

Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and floral designs.

Material Details

Wool is the most widely used fiber in Turkish rug design. Not only is it plentiful in supply, it’s durable, long-lasting, and incredibly plush—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on. This wool pile is woven onto a cotton foundation, another popular choice in rug design. The cotton used is rigid, strong, and provides a sturdy foundation that’s designed to last a lifetime—or ten.

How to Style This Rug

Medium rugs between 5’ x 8’ and 6’ x 9’ are loved for their versatility.
