Nevertheless, the proper application of color in antique oriental rugs is equally important to the nuanced designs, and also carries an important message. Although authentic Persian rugs are characterized by an immense array of styles and color palettes, the most frequently used shades are beige or gold, blue and red. The “royal trio” stands consecutively for wealth, beauty and joy, and power as well as solitude – an allusion to the afterlife. If someone once falls under the spell of antique Persian carpets, he or she will never be able to break it as these fabulous Oriental rugs embody the essence of ultimate mastery, timeless beauty and upmost excellence. There are no modern utilitarian objects that would match the charm and mystery of antique Persian rugs.
