  • Notes:
  • Isfahan Rugs are known for their high quality. The Iranian city of Isfahan has been one of the centers for production of famous Persian rugs. As Isfahan was becoming a center of high-quality rugs, most Isfahan rugs used traditional motifs inspired by the architectural motifs and tiles. Designers were also inspired by the poets Rumi, Hafez, Attar of Persia and the nature and religious and spiritual intimations that are ingrained in the culture. In twentieth century rugs, the colors have become more pastel, utilizing the artistic flair of this City of Art. Both Classical and contemporary Isfahan rugs are extremely attractive, with a range of traditional designs that are still used. These include Shah Abbas, Vase, Tree of Life and Pictorial schemes. But the most popular design is a circular central medallion that is derived from the famous mosque of Shah Lutf Allah in Isfahan, and is set against an elegantly sculpted field, decorated with intricately purling vine palmettes and floral motifs.
