Can you tell the different sorts of traditional rugs apart? Which one would best suit your home? Here are three traditional rugs we know you’ll love.
Rugs are a great way to add warmth to your house without having to install full carpets. In fact, even if you do have mats, a beautiful rug adds elegance and interest to a room. Rugs have been made and used for thousands of years. With so many designs, styles and individual personalities, choosing one for your needs can be overwhelming. Luckily, this blog aims to help you make a sound decision when you’re in the market for a new rug.
Most commonly recognised worldwide, Persian rugs are known for their unique design, and as one of the best you can find. Let us show you the three most common sorts of traditional rugs you can find in Melbourne so you can choose the best match for your house.
Persian rugs originate in Iran, formerly known as Persia. The Persian Empire was one of the largest and longest-running in the world. This empire stretches back to Roman times and only dissolved in the early 20th century. Persian rugs are traditionally handwoven, with a high concentration of knots. They portray traditional objects such as pomegranates, and flowers with husks. The colours are usually muted shades of blue, red, brown, gold and beige.
Ikat rugs are named after the oldest pattern in the world. The Ikat pattern was first seen in many ancient cultures thousands of years ago. The striking design could be found all over the world, from Peru to Japan. Ikat rugs generally have a lower knot count, which means that they are one of the cheapest sorts of oriental rugs, despite their ancient pedigree. This makes them a great choice if you want a genuine traditional oriental rug but have a tight budget. Ikat patterns are abstract and tribal. With a unique double dying feature that gives them more depth of colour than other traditional rugs.
In the middle of the traditional rug price range, we have an exciting rug called a Chobi Ziegler. These have a lower knot count than a Persian rug, but a higher count than an Ikat. This prices them somewhat in the inbetween, making them perfect if you want a traditional oriental rug but don’t want to splurge on a purebred Persian. Muted colour schemes and classical design give this gorgeous rug presence. Chobi is the Persian word for wood, which is a reference to its colour scheme. Ziegler is a German company who helped bring this sort of rug onto the market in the late 1800s. There are plenty more traditional rugs from all over the world that can match any home’s personality and style.
