77285 Antique Persian Malayer Hallway Runner with Modern Parisian Style 02'10 x 12'06. Full of history with woven tales and a dark color palette, this hand knotted wool antique Persian Malayer runner would bring a sense of nostalgic charm to nearly any space. The dark navy blue field is covered in an all-over repetitive pattern of opulent Boteh motifs. A crenelated fence guard stripe frames the center field. It is enclosed with a geometric border composed of serrated leaves, eight-point stars and cloud bands flanked with an inner and outer floral Meander guard band. The dark hues combined with rich abrash dash across the field, enhancing the depth that connects home interiors with the elements of nature. The widely used boteh motif is thought to symbolize life, growth, and regeneration with its resemblance to a number of natural forms, including pinecones, sprouts, leaves, bushes, and flames. The ambiguous boteh motifs come together into a network that is both meaningful and elegant. Perfect for a hallway, stair landing, open hall or long entry, kitchen, corridor, private library, den, mudroom, study, home office, sitting room, bathroom, grand foyer and designer entryway, or it would make a lovely accent to a great room, wine cellar, executive suite, conservatory, state room, royal suite, living room, bedroom, hotel lobby, billiards room, or clubhouse.
