The first thing that is immediately apparent just from looking at a Persian rugs is how intricately designed they are and how they often reflect forms of Iranian art. Persian rugs often depict floral scenes and this is said to be from ancient times when it permitted their owners to believe that they were sitting in a traditional Iranian garden. Persian rugs are perfect for adding a unique style to a room and can more or less be utilised in any sort of home given how versatile they are and the fact that they come in all shapes and sizes.

Rugs – Family Secrets

In ancient times, the weaving process behind Persian rugs was often a closely guarded secret that would be passed on from generation to generation in order to maintain the tradition. It is fortunate that the traditions were not lost because Persian rugs are now amongst the most popular forms of furnishings in today’s homes and they can be found in everything from manor houses to contemporary flats. Modern rugs and runners are often used in conjunction with Persian rugs as they are often very good at complementing one another in terms of size and style.
