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.

Most often, I love to kick start a project with an Antique area rug. I look for area rugs that are high quality hand knotted with both wool and silk.

Reality, of course, set in.

I own about 15 of them ranging from 200 year old to a 1940 Bessarabian one. I also try to make sure they have their original colors which is quite hard since so many of them have been restored in an appalling fashion.

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.

A good repair does not affect the value, but a bad repair ruins a rug. When choosing your rug size make sure your furniture fits onto the rug.
