Distressed Antique Persian Mahal Rug with Industrial Aesthetic, 08'00" x 10'00" From Esmaili Rugs Collection. This late 19th century Mahal rug features an excellent representation of Persian culture. With its fresh and utilitarian appeal, this industrial style rug gives modern spaces a raw yet sophisticated edge. The overall geometric design scheme combined with its intentionally distressed appearance highlight the liveliness in the field. Impeccably woven and well-balanced throughout, this Persian Mahal charmingly delivers an essence of refinement creating a lovely rhythmic effect across the entire composition of this extraordinary antique rug. Full of character and equally as compelling, the borders shine through complementing the overall design scheme. Notice how the color removal process has created an uneven striation within the background color while the original pattern transpires in a vague shadow of its former self. With its relaxed palette and elegantly appointed composition, this antique Persian Mahal provides an artistic impact to complement concrete or brick walls for a more industrial aesthetic. Beautiful over wood, concrete and marble floors, distressed oriental rugs are impervious to trends. Our collection of distressed rugs reflects how designers and architects are finding fresh ways to incorporate industrial-inspired elements into their projects.
