The town of Yalameh lies slightly north of the city of Isfahan in central Iran. Yalameh is well known for its top-quality tribal rugs with diamond geometric designs. In comparison with other tribal rugs, Yallameh is up there with the best. The pile used in Yalameh rugs is very fine, particularly in comparison to other tribal designs, using soft wool based on a cotton foundation. The pattern is distinctive with large repeated diamonds in a straight line down the carpet, often with geometrical animal or human prints scattered across the field. Similar to Shiraz rugs, these rugs compliment modern or minimalist furniture beautifully, giving the living space an aura of luxurious style and warmth. [ref. Dr Reza Cheshmehdoost]
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.
