All it takes to give a home a vintage look are antique rugs. Buy and have them spread out on the floor and see how it glitters. The ambience makes you feel as if you are seated inside an Islamic Inn of the old days, dating at least 300 years back. They still get the same kind of attention today as they got all those decades back, still having buyers pursue them all the time. They have become more of a prized object to collect rather than being looked at as accessories rendering comfort.
A first look at the Kerman Antique Rugs and you get a feeling you are right on track in buying a timeless piece. Dating back to the 17th Century, Kerman Carpets have always been thought of as high quality rugs. Even in these, the Vase Carpets of the Safavid Period are supposed to be the best demonstrations in Persian Artistry. The Lavar type is equally charismatic, known for its fine weaving and elegant designs of classical derivations. These come done in both allover and central medallion formats. Their palettes too draw a lot of attention, with a sublime variety on display. Common colors on them include ivory, blue, magenta, golden, saffron etc.
Some of the Caucasian Antique Rugs include the likes of Armenian, Kuba, Shirvan, Kabistan, Daghestan, Baku, Karabagh, Kazak, Georgian, Gandgea, Soumak-Kashmir etc. Most of these pieces are known for their exquisite softness, purity of tone and mellowness. These attributes tend to give the pieces immeasurable superiority over the rest. Their pattern has hardly changed over the years, a quality that helps them retain that antique touch even now.
Anatolian Antique Rugs are said to be from the region of Caucasus, West Turkestan, Central Asia, Mongolia and China. Though the region of their origin is still under dispute, these are the areas they supposedly belong to. Another legend about them says the first signs of their discovery were visible near the tomb of the Scythian prince near Pazyrik in Southern Siberia.
Whatever the case, the antiquity in them can never be disputed. These Antique Rugs have survived all these centuries to finally emerge as pieces worthy of the highest praise for the aura emanating from them. Spread them out on the floor and the thrill you get by seeing vintage material exuding magnificence is a different feeling altogether.
The interiors of your house change for the better once you have these spread out. Giving the floor a look from the 16th Century, they justify through their appearance the reason why the price tag they are sold at is aptly justified. Any home would resemble the manifestation of an Islamic Inn once seen from the inside. Perhaps, at that level should these carpets be pegged at.
