In Georgia, it will probably be a while before we actually experience any crisp breezes. Still, come September, the idea of richly patterned wool rugs is appealing. I have a real affinity for a wide variety of old Persian and Turkish rugs but I've been on the fence when it comes to the jagged edges commonly seen in the central design of Persian Mazlaghans. (Kind of thunderbolt-ish.)
However, this circa 1960 example above, from Allan Arthur, caught my eye. The sphere-like designs in the main field remind me of Venetian beads, and I'm having fun imagining the rug mixed with my DIY sawhorse table, or alternatively, two goodies from Jayson Home: the Tucker Console and the Vintage Flashlight Lamp with black shade.
