This dining room was decorated in a vintage pattern called Kashan, a rich Arabesque design in reds, browns, oranges and yellows, spiked with blue.

When it was adapted from an old rug in a Persian style back in the sixties, as seen here, they said it looked “as up-to-date as the morning paper.”

To show off its intricacies to full effect, the fabric was stretched the fabric on shoji frames to screen the windows instead of curtains, and spread over the walls of a niche.

To really combine the contemporary decor with old Persian style, the pattern was then carried to the center of the room on the slip-on seats and backs of black director’s chairs.

There, the material was always in clear view through the glass top of the dining table, and reflected by the table’s modular-style chrome stand.

On the floor, blue vinyl tiles cooled down the room’s decor, and played off the same color in the tapestry-like fabric. The dishes in the pine china cabinet on the far side of the room added a bit more blue.
