Opulent rugs create quiet and calm homes

Beautiful and functional, rugs decorate your home but they also protect your hardwood floors and muffle excess noise. You do not have to choose a thick, fluffy rug to achieve this - even a beautiful Kilim rug, which has no pile, is wonderfully effective in reducing the sound of foot traffic.

Determining the age of your beautiful Oriental rug

Most rugs originate with nomadic tribes who do not keep records on when they were made. Rug experts analyze changes over time in dyes and patterns used, to estimate the era of a rug. Any rug under 5 years old is considered new, while all rugs over 50 years are deemed antiques.

Opulent materials and eclectic design mark the unique features of a Qum Rug

Youthful in rug terms, weaving in the city of Qum began around 1930. Weavers drew inspiration from a wide variety of styles, but what sets Qum rugs apart is the high quality of their materials. Ultrafine silk and the best quality wool are used to dense, ornate and elegant pieces.

People buy Persian rugs for their decorative and practical uses, fine craftsmanship and long history. Reasons to buy a persian rug are as varied as rugs themselves.

Be bold with color, pattern and shape in your home décor, choose a Kazak Rug

Beautiful Kazak rugs have a long history. Originally produced in modern-day Armenia, they are now woven by the Afghan Hazari people, in Pakistan. The use of high contrast patterns in large geometrical shapes, in stunning reds, teals and indigos, adds to their striking looks. A Kazak rug is a star piece for your home.

Does your taste for antiques out pace your budget? Check this out.

Rug collectors know that antique rugs fetch high prices for their beautiful patinas, subtle colors, and historic designs. Many antique rugs hang in museums. But new Peshawar rugs are specially treated to imitate the best qualities of antique rugs. Get an almost identical copy of museum like rugs in your own home.

This should be your first Oriental rug purchase.

The delicate repeating oval pattern on a red field typifies Oriental rug designs from the Bokhara region of Pakistan. It’s a perfect starter rug for those who have always dreamed of owning an authentic hand-knotted oriental rug. At 6x8 feet it makes a great accent piece. You won’t regret adding this beauty to your living space.

Superlative Tabriz Rugs combine ornate designs with lightness and precision

Tabriz weavers are among the fastest and most highly skilled of all Persian rug artisans. They specialize in producing extremely fine detail, with a high level of symmetry and regularity, in these beautiful and colorful rugs. Tabriz rugs also have a short trim pile, making them lighter than other Persian rugs.

Use the 'pull and wave' trick to put your rug in the perfect spot

Your beautiful new Oriental rug needs to be placed in your room with care. First carefully unpack the rug and thoroughly clean the space. Then lay down padding before placing the rug on top. If you then need to move the rug and padding, use the 'pull and wave' method.

Peshawar Rugs are specially crafted to lend a sense of antique sophistication to your home

The artisans who create Peshawar rugs are inspired by antique Persian designs of the kind prized by museums and galleries. They use natural dyes which at first appear bright, but are deliberately faded through stonewashing and sun exposure - creating beautiful, antique-looking rugs that will enliven any room.

Silk - not just a rug but an investment

Most Persian rugs are 100% wool - those made from silk are rarer and therefore more valuable. While a wool rug is durable, a well-kept pure silk rug may actually appreciate over time. The antique silk rug on the left is one of the most expensive ever sold, going for $4 million at auction.

Hear the crackling fire and toast to your new Persian rug.

This small, striking rug with a unique hunting or animal motif would look terrific on the hearth of a fire place or hanging on the wall. The warm colors and stylized birds, cows, goats, and sheep invoke a cozy feel. As an authentic Persian rug, it will become an heirloom piece.
