ORI­EN­TAL TREA­SURES

Homes and Antiques Magazine - - GUIDE : INTERIORS -

Un­like most pat­terned floor­cov­er­ings, ori­en­tal rugs in­tro­duce colour and de­sign with­out lim­it­ing your room’s style. Equally suited to tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary set­tings, they bring a sense of warmth and easy liv­ing. Rugs come in a range of styles from flatweave kil­ims to thick-piled car­pets made from lux­u­ri­ous fi­bres in in­tri­cate de­signs. De­cid­ing on size, pal­ette, tex­ture and bud­get will nar­row your fo­cus. If you’re buy­ing an ex­pen­sive rug, some sup­pli­ers al­low you to try a se­lec­tion at home.
