This antique Romanian rug features three prominent verdant displays centered over a rich, chocolate brown field. The centerpiece showcases a romantic couple poised within a harvest setting, gazing at each other from beyond the fence, a basket brimming with fresh fruits or vegetables resting at her feet. The man is seemingly bent over the top of the fence and is perhaps handing his love a freshly picked rose.

This romantic scene is flanked by mirrored bouquets, with lush red blossoms, amid perfectly shaded green leaves, surrounded by a plethora of white blooms like baby’s breath. Orange and pink buds add extra contrast to the detailed designs of this beautiful antique Romanian Bessarabian Kilim rug. A thick border with stark shading matching the style of the central decorations wraps around the flat weave rug, blooming with red and white pansies, roses and lilies.

The antique flat woven kilim rugs from Romania have a distinct look and feel that is unique to them. The do incorporate the use of roses that we tend to see in the magnificent antique rugs and carpets from France like those woven in Aubusson France. But while they incorporate patterns and designs from other rug weaving origins, they are put together and rendered in colors that are so very much unique to the antique flat woven Romanian Bessarabian kilim rugs.

This flat woven Bessarabian carpet is very sweet and romantic in design. The light shade colors of the patterns truly pop set against the darker black background color. This antique Romanian kilim rug is extremely transitional and can be incorporated, with relative ease, into a whole wide range of interior design approaches. From French country style interior decor to the more trendy California chic decor style this antique flat woven Bessarabian rug will make a wonderful addition.
