Oriental area rugs can include Persian ones and were originally made in China. Now they can come from rug-makers in India, Iran, and Romania as well. Since these areas have low labor costs this style of rug is of a great quality at an equally great value. They are resilient and durable and will add a sense of luxury to any area. They can be hand-knotted, hand woven, or hand loomed. They can also be more affordable when they're made using a combination of both handcrafted and machine made techniques. The can be made even more affordable when they're completely machine loomed. These can be so well made that they appear as handsome as handmade rugs.
Ideally, your rug should be slightly smaller than the area covered by furniture. Moreover, area rugs should be large enough to set the gathering space while allowing circulation space. Depending on the designer and the space, your rug may vary significantly in size. Nevertheless, a good rule of thumb is to allow the front legs of chairs and sofas to be placed on the rug.
Persian area rugs are admired far and wide for their intricate design and deeply hued colors. Originally crafted for the use of wandering tribes, they provided instant flooring over the sand floors of tents. These types of rugs are made in the Middle Eastern areas of Persia in modern day Iraq, Iran, and Turkey. They are well known for their typically ornate, deeply pigmented patterns. Persian rugs are produced both in hand-knotted and machine woven methods. The hand-knotted types have been known to last for over one hundred years.
