One of the most Gonbad Designs with my clients...
This Qum Persian rug features one of the most popular color combinations along with one of the most sought-after variations of the Gonbad design that my clients often ask about and my biggest challenge has always been to find similar replacements. The Gonbad tear-drop design is known as the Jafari pattern and is typically found in only high end Persian rugs like the pure silk Qum rugs due to the challenging nature of the design. The Gonbad design is inspired by the Persian architecture and this particular design is often found in large buildings with a dome ceiling.
With about 700 kpsi, it is a very fine showpiece borderline masterpiece quality Qom perfectly suited for a formal part of a home and many of my clients like to hang these Qum rugs as well as wall decor.
The colors in this piece are strikingly beautiful and as you look at the pictures, you can see the difference between the light and dark side. From one side, the dark green and brown colors are more dominant and from the lighter side the gold is more promiment. As many of my clients have pointed out, this is the type of Qum rug that changes colors and looks depending on the viewing angle and lighting and its as if you see different aspects of the Qum rug everytime a person lays eyes on it. As with virtually all of our Qum rugs, this piece is also signed and in this case it is the weavers from the workshop Karzemieh that had woven this particular rug.
