For the past few weeks we had some tapestries on one of our walls in our rug gallery here in Los Angeles. Today, we decided to re-decorate that wall so we replaced the tapestries with 14 unique hand knotted Persian runner rugs. These are all rural, tribal antique one of a kind pieces from Iran and regions such as Sarab, Qaradjeh, Meshkin, Hamedan, Malayer, and Nahavand. Several of them are around 100 years old and they still look pretty and decorate any part of the home they are used in.
I tried to use different designs and different color palettes on the wall so two or more red background runners are not displayed side by side. Since many of these runners are rural and tribal pieces, they have geometrical designs with broken-line motifs.
