Serapi rugs are one of several popular rug types from the Heriz region in northwestern Iran's Azerbaijan province. These beautiful, richly colored Persian rugs have a cotton foundation and a wool pile noted for their combined durability. Typical Heriz characteristics include strong floral patterns, medallions, geometric shapes, and corner designs reminiscent of 17th and 18th century Caucasian rugs. Heriz Serapi rugs are also made in India where both soft earth tones and bold, traditional colors are used. This is a classic Persian-style rug you'll be proud to own and display in your home.
Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
