With respect to more recent history, burgundy isn’t exactly an earth-shattering discovery. Burgundy has been a leading lipstick choice for at least a couple decades (though in recent years, a pronounced purple pout has gained popularity). Burgundy items and accessories pop up on shelves pretty much every time the leaves start to drop.More...

The making of antique rugs has not changed for centuries; the same rudimentary techniques and materials are used from Turkey, China, Persia, India, Morocco, Russia, Europe and the surrounding areas. Each culture ensures the longevity of their design iconography through the making of the carpets. Antique rugs can stand on their own for historical importance and cultural significance. Most high-end carpets were made in sophisticated urban settings in well established cities where value was placed on such fine artistry.The more casual Persian tribal rugs were woven by nomadic tribesmen and women as they had access to coarser material and did not have the advantage of established rug looms such as those used to make refined city rugs. As antique rugs are perishable this leaves us with a very vague evolutionary outline indeed.
Antique carpets can vary in color, size, designs and material. The current trend in buying antique rugs is towards the washed-out neutral colors which can be used in any environment. Although antique oriental rugs come in a plethora of rainbow colors they anchor any room and create an inviting ambiance. It was once said that, “the carpet/rug is the soul of the apartment." Antique rugs were originally made for the western market in countries such as India, Persia and Turkey. As the industrial revolution created a new merchant class, antique rugs were one of their status symbols for wealth and good taste. Watch any period film form the late 19th or early 20th century and you will almost certainly see an oriental rug in one of the interiors.
