There is great confusion in the market as to what is and what is not, an Oriental area rug.
For a rug collector only a handmade, hand-knotted, wool rug made in traditional oriental rug countries constitutes an authentic oriental rug. However, for the home decorator and interior designer we are more concerned with the look of the rug and how it will fit into our home. So, here at House Of Area Rugs we bring you a range of oriental style rugs, made from different fibers and in different constructions. Each oriental rug is clearly described so you know exactly what you are getting.
No matter where, how or of what the rug is made of an oriental rug has a warm and intense aura. It will bring a sense of charm and old world appeal to your décor. Oriental rugs have been adored for centuries by kings and nobleman but luckily today the rest of us can appreciate them in our own homes.
When thinking of an Oriental area rug, you may immediately think formal and elegant; large central medallions and gracious borders. These rugs of course are treasured heirlooms and bring a formal ambience to any room. But Oriental rugs are not restrained to this formal pattern. More casual in appearance are the Tribal designs and these bring a look of relaxed nostalgia to the living rooms of your home.
