Tabriz is known for its gorgeous masterpieces and a weaving tradition that goes back nearly four hundred years. Tabriz is a city that was once home to the famed weaving schools of the Safavid Dynasty. It was here that many of the iconic traditional designs that we see in Persian rugs today were first created. This vintage Persian area rug has a classic design and a faded Shabby Chic area rug look and feel that will lend a more casual feel to the space.

This beautiful piece features a medallion design, which is a classic motif found in the magnificent rugs from Tabriz. This piece is a vintage Persian silk area rug which is extremely fine, since silk can be spun into thin fibers that allow for designs with fine detail. The background color of this soft and luxurious area rug and design motifs show a classic, though faded, color and design combination. This vintage Persian Tabriz rug has a timeless character that has seen many feet cross its path through the ages. This gives it a mystique that alludes to its history and the many stories that it has to tell.

This piece has an ancient feel that is reminiscent of the glory days of the ancient Persian empires, with their palaces and courtyards. As mentioned earlier, this vintage rug boasts a design that has a formal feel which would be the perfect foundation for a formal dining room. The design is formal, but its aged appearance gives it a more casual flavor that could serve as a perfect centerpiece for a conversation area.

One could easily see this piece as part of a Boho Chic look with its tribal character and ancient appearance. The faded look of the silk rug transforms it into the perfect piece for adding a touch of color in a neutral space. You could easily design a cohesive space using the colors of the rug as inspiration. This is a gorgeous piece for creating an inspired design that reflects your personality and design tastes. It is a unique piece that sparks the imagination and takes you to another time and place through its ancient design and aged look.
