Need rugs?

Do you like rugs?They make a fabulous additions to any home! When it comes to decor values and deciding between a contemporary or traditional rug what do you prefer?
You know I'm Turkish and I love rugs. When you choose the right one it coordinates with current furniture styles and colors very well. If you are lucky to have wooden floors in your home, floor rugs are perfect compliment.
Rug making is an ancient art that is relaxing and fun. I tried to make a few knots once and really enjoyed it.
There are two basic knots of rugs;
The Turkish 'Ghordes' Knot which is typically double- wefted

The Persian Knot which is typically single- wefted

Hand made rugs are expensive but totally worth the money. If you are looking for good prices and largest selection of one-of-a-kind rugs anywhere you can find discount area rugs online.

  4. I love the look of the black rug with the floral design. Rugs like that look like a piece of jewelry in a room, the perfect decorating accessory.

  7. Lovely article & beautiful photographs of rug. While it decorates home, it also facilitates meditation - just sitting silently on it with closed eyes and it takes you on inner journey. Thanks a lot for this piece.

  9. I have wood floors so we have lots of rugs... I never spend much on them because with 3 kids and a dog they don't stay very clean.
