The Wide World of Rugs and Carpets

Carpet and Rug Articles - Rugs and carpets come in many looks, textures, colors and designs. They were woven by many different peoples, from all over the world, and the history of antique rugs and carpet weaving is thousands of years old.

The welcoming softness, the inviting colors and the decorative designs give rugs a special place in every interior. In a sleek minimalist loft or a paneled study, a colorful carpet can have a magical effect. Carpets provide texture and color, but they offer so much more. A worldly rug can be a souvenir of global travels, an affinity for tribal designs or a penchant for the elegant floral motifs of Persia.

In the wide world of rugs and carpets, there is sure to be a piece that matches your style. Delicate floral patterns abound in Europe, tribal kilims feature fabulous geometric designs, rugs from the Far East have a glamorous modernity, and Persian rugs represent an archetype of traditional beauty. Rugs have a special place in every house, and they can have a special place in your family's home too.
