Oriental Rugs Far Not Necessarily From The Orient
One of the biggest misconceptions about Oriental rugs is that they all originate from somewhere in Asia. While it is true that cultures such as the Chinese and Tibetans have long produced what we consider to be Oriental rugs, they also come from a wide range of other cultures such as the Middle East and India. What really separates Oriental rugs from other similar items on the market is the design of the rugs and the fact that they are handmade either with or without pile woven in.
What To Consider When Buying Oriental Rugs
Unless you happen to be furnishing a completely empty room and are starting with the rug, you will want to take a little time to consider how your furniture is placed so that you find a rug that perfectly fit in the space available. For example, you should consider whether or not you want furniture sitting on the rug or if you would prefer a rug that is small enough to occupy whatever open floor space available so that visitors get an unobstructed view of it.
