("New Arrivals Gallery") This Persian town rug presents a staggeringly beautiful, vivid rendition of the beloved "Garden of Paradise" theme. Timeless arboreal motifs are greatly enlivened in shimmering silhouettes against the field, where electrified willows mingle with vermilion and golden trees amidst a riot of blooming vinery. Imagine the thrill if one was able to wander through such a dreamscape arboreal wonderland! At least we have our mind's eye to rely on as it transports us through this glorious dreamscape. Its glistening deep midnight-sapphire blue field, with ripplings of intentional color shifts that create a sense of visual depth. The dramatic effect is even further pronounced when juxtaposed with the rich mahogany main border filled with glowing garlands and incandescent wreaths. Sophisticated hues of cerulean, paled turquoise, and butter creme harmonize with olive and hunter-green dancing in a delightful display. Adding to this rug's appeal is its heavy pile with an irresistibly lustrous, lanolin-rich wool that intensifies the luminosity of this engaging piece, imbuing it with a warm sheen overall.
