Persian Rugs - Page 4

post #46 of 71
I like your rug it should develop quite a nice ghost patina in years to come. Unfotunately with most rugs being vacumed instead of paddled it takes unreasonably long for them to loose some pigment.
I own a few rugs mostly from Samarkand and Bukhara and I always make sure that my room is not completely covered by a rug. Always leave some significant space for hardwood floor to show on the sides. Otherwise your rug might turn into a carpet.

<nods> I still live in an apartment (plan to move into a house within the next year). The rug was purchased with foresight - we plan to have a darker hardwood floor in the living room/den, where this rug will go under the coffee table.

A glass coffee table perhaps?

Precisely what we had in mind - glass top, dark wood legs.

Good call! Hope you'll post a pic once you've got it all set up.

Both of you guys did well on your rug purchases. I hope to find something as nice; I need to cover my living room, dining room and bedroom floors in a new apartment.

Has anyone heard of E Sale Rugs?

http://esalerugs.com/

I have purchased two amazing Persian rugs from them; for super low prices. One runner was $90, and 50 years old, and then a larger area rug for $400.

If I had $54294 I would buy this

I saw all the pics and It's definitely the most beautiful carpet I have ever seen.

Persian rugs are incredibly beautiful representing the exquisite creativity of Persians. They are versatile, durable and always stylish that adds charm and beauty to every room they adorn. Persian Rugs are handmade products that are made through a procedure called weaving which can make to last for even years if maintained properly.

These are my rugs. I remember where most of them came from. This came from Iraq. Its at the foot of my bed. It is also ridiculously soft. Turkmen prayer rug. It is about five feet long. What is most interesting about it is the tassels (I know nothing about rugs) at the end have this little bit of color woven into it which the camera didn't pick up. It looks real nice IRL. Here is the string... This one is from Turkey. It is about is a little shorter than my bookcase which is standard bookcase size? maybe two feet long. The red is much darker and deeper, almost a purple-y red. My mom got this for me in Nepal when I was a kid. That is the Tibetan sign for welcome on the tent. She's pretty sure she knows who wove the rug. Yeah, sorry I didn't vacuum it. A Persian rug purchased in Doha. The biggest one by far. Nearly as long as my bed and three and a halfish feet wide.

This one is small but it has a 2 fold pattern so it's more unique than most. This one is much larger but it's a 4 fold pattern so a little less unique but the size is great.

There is a great rug app for iPad. I think it's called Rugz or something similar.

For what it's worth, I got a decent one on overstock.com recently. It's what I'd call mid-to-low range -- hand knotted, 200 knots per inch. Soft wool, substantial, very neatly made. Made in China, but a traditional design. Looks nice. Cost about half to a third of what you'd pay locally. I'm happy with it.
