Striking c.1930 Qum carpet

Rug weaving in the city of Qum only started at the beginning of the 20th century and the city quickly established itself  as a centre for exceptional fine weavings.  Qum is known for their unique decorative carpets with classically precise drawings and luxurious wool, often merino, setting it apart from other Persian weaving centres.

This highly decorative Qum carpet illustrates the best of both worlds - the fineness of early workshop weavings and the creative design characteristics of tribal Caucasian Zeyhour rugs of the 19th century. All the colours are vegetable dyed which have aged nicely. In excellent condition, still retaining its original plain borders on all four sides and original fringes at both ends. A timeless rug to complement a wide variety of settings.

Gallery Yacou is a family owned business run by Robin Yacoubian and his father, Ezekiel, and has been in the family for over four generations specialising in antique, decorative and contemporary carpets.

We passionately believe in the importance of choosing the right rug for each individual room, and that the rug not only complements the space but adds depth and soul to it.

With our broad depth of knowledge and collective experience, we are able to advise our clients on the various options we have in our collection that would complement the various spaces.

We work with a range of clients including leading interior designers and architects, members of the design industry, hoteliers, private clients and collectors. Some of the projects for which we have provided rugs include grand listed buildings, hotels, embassies, modern city apartments, 17th century abbeys, country houses and residential homes.

We have just recently relocated from our showroom on the Fulham road to our studio/workshop in North London.

We are members of the antique dealers associations, BADA and LAPADA, and an Industry Partner of BIID, the British Insititute of Interior Design, and exhibit annually at the BADA & LAPADA Fairs. Please email us using the enquiry form opposite, if you would like a complimentary ticket to any of these Fairs.
