According to a recent article from the Associated Press, the museum-quality Oriental rug that was sold for more than $33 million last June was worth the price. The rug was a 17th century, hand-knotted, Clark Sickle-Leaf carpet, the article reported, and Sotheby’s auctioneer Mary Jo Otsea described it as “dazzling.”
Most people can’t afford a $33 million rug. But when it comes to Oriental rugs, there are plenty of beautiful options in every price range. Otsea said that, when searching for the right rug for your space, it is important to look at a wide selection. The rugs vary in design and color, and you learn what you like after you’ve looked a while, she explained.
According to the article, rug experts urge you to select something that you feel an emotional attachment to, much like you would with artwork. Also, they say, it’s not necessary to worry so much about size, as Persian rugs don’t fall into the rule about an exact size to fit the room.
