Use copper dishes or ornamental, ceramic pottery
Start with the small details making your way to more significant changes. If you visit Iran, you will grow familiar to the scene of metal workers busily banging away at sheets or polishing them at bazaars and pottery shops. Copper is highly used in Iran, making it an affordable and significant element to represent their craftsmanship and everyday habits that have been dragged from long ago to our day today.
On a similar note, Iranians are used to keeping their water cool by using large clay jugs, giving us proof that pottery has been a time-honored part of their history and culture. Cities like Yazd, Natanz, and Lalejin in Iran are reputable for their ceramics, continually keeping up with this antiquated tradition today. Even though these clay dishes and ceramics have mostly been established for decoration, they are frequently used in the kitchen for cool beverages, side dishes or meal presentations.
Time to get posh with Poshti!
Poshti is a decorative backrest cushion upholstered with rug fragments. This traditional piece of furniture is a cultural part of every Iranian and Afghan home. Sitting on the floor is almost inevitable in Iranian culture, making this furniture piece a symbolic must in every Persian home. You can easily create a cozy, traditional and comfortable feel in your home with the help of a few poshtis rested against the wall on your living room floor.
Speaking of comfort and coziness, poufs are certainly not to be missed. Similar to a Poshti, a traditionally ornamented pouf can give your room a calming and restful feel too. If you think a Poshti is culturally too strong and lust for a traditional look, with a tiny modern twist, you can opt for a pouf designed in Persian inspired details and place it near your armchair or your sofa.
Freshly picked flowers are ravishing in every scene or style. Who can say no to the blossoming aura of a bouquet, presented on the table in your kitchen radiating a spirit lifting smell? There are few Iranian favorites when it comes to flowering in this culture. Hyacinth which is part of the traditional Nowroz table, tuberose which is known as Maryam or Mary in Persian and finally daffodils. These flowers can be the finishing touches to a full Iranian set up in your home. Not only do they look graceful, but they provide you an intensifying fragrant throughout day and night.
