Traditional Chinese rugs and carpets are immediately recognizable by their simple, classic motifs and unusual colors. This particular design fuses a combination of the center medallion on an ivory background and navy blue border. These rugs often feature a center, circular medallion; familiar objects seen in nature such as animals, flowers, and clouds; stylized Chinese ideographs; and even entire scenes. They're usually framed with a simple, wide border.
Many Chinese rugs and carpets are sculpted where contrasting colors meet to provide interest and texture to the simple patterns. These rugs are usually of high quality and extremely durable.
