Today, the traditional craftsmanship once treasured has transformed into the lowest cost labor available, or mass-manufactured rugs for big home stores around the world. Since we’re all about helping you find quality and enduring value, here is some history and tips to help navigate you around the world of heirloom-quality rugs.
I do not know what a standard rug really means. I know of antique rugs that are 8 by 10 and cost $250,000. A good contemporary rug should probably cost $10 to 15,000, unless it is a normal rug in which case $5,000 should do it, I must say that I am not quite sure.
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!
