Quotes from owner Nader Bolour taken from the blog of CJ Dellatore:

"Searching for an antique rug is where the design process begins for most. They are the soul of a room, all the other elements of a well-appointed space are there to celebrate it."

"While many Tabriz carpets for sale have central medallions with symmetrical designs - and typical coloration based in reds and blues, this rug is woven quite differently. It's a true work of art. The muted rose background, and range of colors, coupled with the asymmetry of the gardens, borders, poems and prayers amalgamated within make it a remarkable specimen. It's subtle, and exceptionally sophisticated."

"When I consider making a purchase of an antique persian carpet for sale such as this, I envision a designer who will respond to it. I've learned over the years that provenance is far less important than aesthetics - and the visceral reaction a designer has to the color, abrash, motifs, and subtle nuances in the overall design."
