Gorgeous Animal Design Antique Persian Kurdish Hallway Runner Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Persian Rugs, Circa date: 1920 – The brilliant colors of this antique Persian Kurdish rug will bring energy and vibrancy to the home. The designs of the Persian rugs that were woven by the Kurdish tribes are known for their spontaneity and creativity. They often include stylized representations of animals that are primitive and delightful. This beautiful hallway runner rug contains floral, animal, and human figures in a pattern that is both playful and beautiful.

One of the characteristics that is unique about Kurdish woven antique rugs is the childlike representation and folk-art style. For instance, the human figures in this rug are exceptionally small when compared to the oversized roses and birds. It is as if a child drew the figures, and this is one of the reasons why these rugs have drawn so much attention in the world of art. They have a naïve style and shaggy appearance that will brighten any space.

Another element of antique Persian Kurdish rugs that makes them unique is that they often incorporate motifs and elements from the surrounding areas. They adapted them and made them their own. The result is an instantly recognizable style and that will bring a smile to your face the minute you see it. Color is a dominant element in Kurdish rugs, and this one features a wide color palette that includes a range of blues, brilliant oranges, earthy browns, greens, purples, burgundies, and many others.

One suggestion for using such a colorful piece of artwork for your floor is to choose two colors from the rug and use them as accents throughout the space. This creates a unified look by drawing attention to certain elements of the rug for a more subdued look. Of course, If your style is bold and brilliant, this Persian runner rug gives you plenty of possibilities.

This antique Kurdish runner is the perfect size area rug for the hallway, or you could use it to unify two areas of the home or office. This magnificent Persian Kurdish runner is an expressive, personal piece of artwork. It will spark your creativity and allow you to design a unique room and that expresses your personal style.
