If productivity is one of your resolutions this year, enhance your home work space with the comfort and elegance of an Orley Shabahang rug.

As designer Milton Glaser once said, “There are three responses to a piece of design – ‘yes,’ ‘no,’ and ‘wow.’ ‘Wow’ is the one to aim for.” To make your home office a ‘wow’ space, visit Orley Shabahang to see and feel the difference of a luxury Persian carpet.


Designer Linda Ruderman enlisted Orley Shabahang to weave a custom round carpet from the Galaxy collection, as seen featured in Luxe magazine.┬áThe subtlety and fluidity of Whorl‘s tone effortlessly brings color into this wood-paneled office, while the complexity of the design remains forever nuanced.


Michael Smith’s design for his client’s Aspen home, as seen in Town & Country, aptly pulled Orley Shabahang’s Aspen carpet. This carpet draws in natural colors such as blues, soft greens, and browns, seamlessly bringing the view from the window into the space.


Robert Cotourier uses modern sensibilities in his office design for author Jay McInerney, which has since been published in Architectural Digest. As such, Orley Shabahang’s Rain No.1 rug was an obvious choice to add texture and richness to the room’s blue theme without clashing or fighting with the other pieces in the space. The indigo-dyed blue wool, derived through ancient and natural techniques, is so multi-faceted that it connects all of the blue tones together.


Hadas Dembo of Mise En Scene Design enriches a minimalist space with a decorative antique Persian carpet. This Haji Jalili Tabriz rug was made in 1870, and in true Persian carpet heritage, it grows more beautiful as time passes. By keeping the rest of the space minimal, the rug becomes the signifier of the desk’s importance in the office.
