Our exquisite selection of Oriental, Persian rugs, Antique Chinese Rugs and Carpets will give you elegance and coziness to your home, at the same time. We have a vast selection of these authentic antiques. Did you know Antique Chinese carpets have a very long and distinguished history that is largely independent of rug designs from the Middle East? Often related more to the tradition of silk textiles, Antique Chinese rugs and carpets were produced in medallion, as well as allover formats. These tend to be more open and spacious than Oriental carpets from the Middle East. Often, they contain prominent pictorial elements – trees, clouds, mountains, dragons and various animals. The colors are generally soft with emphasis on blues, golds, and ivories. Also, there is evidence that decorative oriental rugs and carpets have been a significant art form within the Chinese culture for many centuries, if not for several millennia! These antique Chinese carpets and rugs are frequently visible in paintings from as early as the T’ang Period. The colors are mostly blues and beiges, with classical symbols of longevity, elaborate lotus blossoms, chrysanthemums, cloud-band motifs, foo-dogs and birds.
