Discover Decorating Ideas-Mixing Modern with Persian, Moroccan + Oriental Style Rugs
Whether hand-woven antiques from established and reputable antique and vintage dealers, or found in estate sales, these handmade works of art are beautiful additions to any interior, traditional, spanish colonial, farmhouse and rustic modern, Scandinavian, retro mid-century modern, even contemporary. As well there are a number of fine companies offering beautiful rugs that are handmade abroad including India, Pakistan, Turkey Afghanistan, Iran and various other places.

It’s quite amazing to see the creative reworking of multi-cultural motifs, patterns, and framing devices within each design.
