The rug, a beautiful and richly designed piece, is believed to have been made in Mongolia, featured a hand-knotting technique called Ghiordes that is still in use today. Even though it is argued by some historians that the first woven pile rugs were made in Mongolia, it is widely agreed that it is the Persians who perfected it.
While modern homes are trendy, even the most minimalist designers use heirloom-quality rugs to add a touch of elegance and sophistication. The cost of rugs is as diverse as the designs and while some can be found for under $100, there are many that cost small fortunes to procure.
I like it when a room looks as if it has evolved over time. I buy almost all of our antique carpets at auction because the mark-up at most rug dealers is really high!
