This rug is a lovely example of a high-end, silk-foundation Isfahan rug. Sometimes also called Esfahan or Isphahan or any combination using Is, Es, Fs, and PHs, rugs of this type are a good pick for formal settings. This particular rug boasts a very tight weave with an intricate floral design highlighted with silk. The rug’s foundation is also silk which is usually a great indicator when trying to determine if a rug is an Isfahan or not. This rug would be a perfect showstopper in your foyer or in front of the fireplace in your formal living room. Its luxurious feel and clarity of design enables it to hold its own with even the most luxurious furnishings and fabrics. The piece was made in the 1980s, but it has yet to be used and shows no wear.
In Farsi, there is a saying, “Isfahan, Nesfeh Jahann!” which basically means, if you’ve seen Isfahan you’ve seen half the world. So, if you want your home to have a worldly look and feel, this will get you halfway there!
