Traditional Persian rugs have a history dating back more than 2,500 years, originating from the need to warm the floors of nomads during their travels. Over time, intricate designs have evolved and been passed down through generations. Today, these Persian rugs are not only still fashionable but also more practical, as they are easier to clean, durable, and eco-friendly. They perfectly complement the "Boho chic" and "exotic" styles found in many high-end interior design magazines, providing endless Persian rug interior design possibilities, and adding warmth and character to any space.

There are many ways to achieve a modern Persian interior look, such as using your Persian rug to complement an accent wall that has a rich color, matching a bold color from your rug to the walls, furniture, or accessories, and keeping key pieces of furniture neutral to let your rug shine as a focal point, within the theme of a modern Persian interior design.

Let us take you on a journey with our selection of 7 Persian-inspired rugs to reflect a modern Persian house decor.
