Historic Doylestown, PA Farmhouse Sunroom Made Sunnier with Real Handmade Oriental Rug
Homeowners entrusted with stewardship of an historic Bucks County farmhouse located in Doylestown, PA recently selected a traditional handmade oriental rug from Brandon Oriental Rugs - www.BrandonRugs.com - to appropriately complete the "sunroom" of their lovely home.
An 8x10 antique reproduction, hand-knotted, Persian Heriz design oriental rug made in India with vegetal dyes and hand-spun wool yarns was selected by the Doylestown homeowners to complete the newly furnished and re-purposed room, blessed with year-round morning sun, at the rear entrance to their centuries old home.
The vintage look of the Heriz rug is period and style appropriate for the age and character of the home.
Notice the characteristic "double-outlining technique" found in many rug styles, particularly Heriz types, originating in northwest Iran. This technique provides enhanced contrast and definition to transitions between major design features (primary border and flanking guard stripes; inner guard stripe and rug background or field; field and medallion.) WIthout this technique these often coarsely woven rugs would not have the same bold, vivid character. Instead they would have the less defined, or soft and diffuse, appearance of the not so distantly related Turkish Oushak style rug.
