52555 Distressed Antique Persian Mahal Runner with Relaxed Federal Style. With rustic charm and timeless appeal, this hand knotted wool distressed antique Persian Mahal design runner can beautifully blend traditional and contemporary interiors. The field is covered in an all-over repetitive pattern of opulent Mir-a-Boteh motifs spread across the weathered field. The soft hues combined with weathered striations 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. It is enclosed with a Shekeri border flanked with inner and outer crenelated fence guard bands. Effortlessly chic and tastefully understated combined with rustic elegance, this antique Turkish runner will charm with ease in any nearly space. 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 living room, bedroom, hotel lobby, or vestibule.
