Amy Winehouse on a Red Persian Design Rug!

Nice collection of guitars, nice wood floors.  Amidst all the health concerns this superstar faces, it's good to see her at her best: cool, calm and dare we say sober?!?!  A good indication of this is how she stares intently at the camera while this shot was taken, rather than watching the rug morph into different shades of red, ivory and blue.  But what kind of rug is this anyway?

Amy Winehouse
Winehouse is seated on a stool which is placed on top of what appears to be....   a mid-grade (possibly wool piled) ~5x8 machine made carpet?  OUCH!!!  The style of this rug is probably best termed as a "kashan" design, which is a typical Persian design from the city of Kashan in Iran.  The pattern alludes to this by both the border design which incorporates a stylized flower (in the rug business called a palmette), and the navy blue outlined "lantern" which stems from the medallion immediately to the right side of her left knee cap.  Outside of the design elements, Kashan style rugs are notorious for their use of reds, blues and ivory.
