Learn About | Persian Gonbad Design Rugs

There's nothing more romantic than imported furniture.  An antique end table can tell the story of a bachelor who finds love in France, as a silk tapestry could evoke images of Chinese royalty dining in an extravagant banquet hall.  For some reason the exotic nature of foreign objects can grip us with wonder.  The same holds true for Persian rugs, and Persian Gonbad rugs, in particular.

Gonbads, also known as Gombads, are categorized as such because of their amazing design.  Like other Persian designs, Gombads are very colorful and intricate.  There is no denying the hard work that goes into making these fine rugs.  Just one look at the detail involved in the designs will tell you why they are so highly coveted.  From their design to their construction Gombad Carpets are made with care.

Gonbad rugs are identified by their circular centerpiece which ripples outward in beautifully patterned layers of color and design.  There is usually no dominant background color with gombad designs because there is not enough empty space.  These magnificent rugs are completely covered in detailed decorations that could keep the eyes busy for hours, but blend into a wonderful whole when gazing from afar.  Gonbads are a wonderful centerpiece for any room and make a unique addition to any household.

These persian rugs tend to bring the viewer images of flowers.  The patterning is often reminiscent of rose petals branching from the bud of a perfect rose.  Unfortunately, there has yet to be a flower as colorful as a persian rug, but gombads allow the creative senses to indulge.  The patterns have also been described as looking like the sun, with the designs reaching out from the center like rays trying to escape the canvas.

These persian rugs are actually inspired by the intricately decorated, circular ceiling of a mosque.  The patterning is representative of the complicated tile work that goes into the construction of these prayer houses.  The dome of the mosque is the peak, and where the patterning tends to start.  The center of a gonbad rug is similar to the center of the dome.

Some gonbads will even tell a story within the pattern work.  Certain colors can represent concepts and emotions.  Blue and orange, for example express the feelings of devotion and isolation, as well as the concept of the afterlife.  When mixed with the elaborate designs and patterns, Gombad rugs can represent far more than beauty, comfort, or romance.

These rugs are hand made with a mixture of silk and wool.  They are designed for the use of warmth and comfort, as well as aesthetic beauty.  Hardwood floors are beautiful, but they can get very cold.  A Persian Gombad rug is the perfect place for a family to rest to their feet while watching a movie or playing a board game. 

Persian Gonbads also make wonderful wall hangings.  Their ability to completely transform a room and bring energy to the inhabitants is incredible.  No matter how you decide to use it, a gombad rug can only enhance your living space.  Not only that, you'll finally be able to say you have a specialized, high quality persian rug!
