If you consider the origins of Persian rugs, still available today in the traditional patterns that echo the originals, you are going back to a time that is simply incomprehensible to us.
Those were days when tribes moved from place to place and lived in tent-like constructions with the earth for a floor. A rug would be carried by families to cover the dry, dusty floor and make things a little more comfortable than otherwise. This practice is one that we still carry out today when we decide to cover a pale, cold floor with a pretty attractive rug.
The beauty of the Persian rug – and many other examples from this area of the Middle East and North Africa – is that it is a colourful, traditional design with a rich history. This sort of rug belongs in the large, stylish room of old, yet looks equally at home in a more modern setting. It’s about decoration in the extreme, a beautiful look that has stood the test of time and will continue to do so.
Today you can buy traditional types of rugs that look like the real thing – a genuine original will cost you a huge amount of money – quite cheaply, and bring that beautiful Persian classic look into your home. Such designs are traditional and long lived because, quite simply, they are timeless.
