Further on the Design:
A gorgeous play of ivory and other light, refreshing colors creates a graceful softness, and exemplifies the neoclassical inspiration with tasteful elegance.

This marriage of color and comfortable, sophisticated style in large size exemplifies Josh’s favorite Savonnerie carpets of this period.
