Finding the Right rugs-carpets for You

Good antique rugs and vintage rugs have made their way into homes across the globe, becoming fixtures used for comfort, prayer and self-expression, so choosing the right area rug is officially a universal endeavor.

In modern usage, “carpet” typically denotes a wall-to-wall floor cushioning that is fixed to the floor. Rugs, on the other hand, are designed to cover a specific area and can easily be moved to new locations. However, the terms are interchangeable in many parts of the world, and, in the end, it won’t matter what you decide to call it.

It’s well known that a timeless Persian rug or vintage Turkish rug can warm any interior, but there are lots of other styles of antique rugs to choose from when you're endeavoring to introduce fresh colors and textures to a bedroom or living room.

Moroccan Berber rugs are not all about pattern. In fact, some of the most striking examples are nearly monochrome. But what these rugs lack in complexity, they make up for in brilliant color and subtle variation. Moroccan-style interiors can be mesmerizing — a sitting room of this type might feature a Moroccan rug, carved wooden screens and a tapestry hung behind the sofa.

Handwoven kilim rugs, known for their wealth of rich colors and unique weaving tradition, are pileless: Whereas the Beni Ourain rugs of Morocco can be described as dense with a thick surface or pile, an authentic kilim rug is thin and flat. (The term “kilim” is Turkish in origin, but this type of textile artistry is practiced all across the Balkans, throughout the Arab world and elsewhere.) 

When it comes to eye-catching floor coverings, the distinctive “medallion” pattern of Oushak rugs has two types of rounded shapes alternating against a rich red or blue background created with natural dyes, while the elaborate “star” pattern involves large eight-pointed shapes in diagonal rows alternating with diamonds.  

If you’re looking for something unexpected, find a runner rug that pops in your hallway or on your stairs. Dig for dazzling geometric patterns in our inventory of mid-century modern rugs and carpets, which includes works designed by the likes of Swedish textile masters Märta Måås-Fjetterström, Marianne Richter and other artisans. 

Carpets and rugs have been around for thousands of years. Prehistoric humans turned to animal skin, wool and fur to craft simple fabrics to soften hard terrain. A 2016 study suggests that "cave lions" were hunted for exactly this purpose, and that decorating your cave with their pelts may have conferred strength and prestige. Although many of these early textiles are still in existence, tracing their precise origins is difficult. Carpets quickly became such a valuable trade commodity that the weavings could easily travel far from their places of origin. 

The oldest known carpet was found in southern Siberia. (It may have traveled there from Persepolis in Iran.) For the flat-weave floor rugs crafted by Native Americans, cotton was the primary material before sheep’s wool was introduced in the 16th century. In Europe, carpet-making was fundamental to folk art, and Asian carpets imported to European countries were at one time considered a precious luxury and not intended to remain permanently on the floor. 

With the variety of area rugs and carpets rolled out for you on 1stDibs — a collection that includes traditional, modern, minimalist rugs and other coverings of all kinds — things will be looking up whenever you’re looking down.

    An overdyed Persian rug refers to a rug that has been treated with a specific process and wash — it involves bleaching, color saturation and drying. The washed rug is overdyed, which creates deep and rich color that is uneven compared to that of a new rug. This will give it a vintage appearance and it is guaranteed to stand out in any space. Find a collection of antique and vintage rugs on 1stDibs today.

    Persian rugs can be expensive because they are made with the highest quality materials, the cost of which trickles down to the consumer, and because of the long time that it takes to create these majestic works.

    Antique and vintage Persian rugs are handmade from the finest materials, including wool and silk. These fibers are colored using natural dyes derived from insects and plants and woven into bold designs that reflect Iran’s culture and history. Regarded as works of art, carpets and rugs of this kind can take months or years to complete.

    Iran (modern-day Persia) encompasses different cultures, languages and dialects, and its exquisite rugs reflect this diversity. The fascination with Persian rugs dates at least as far back as the 4th century B.C., when historian Xenophon referred to the “soft rugs on which the Persians sit.” For centuries, Iran has been known for the craftsmanship, intricate patterns and artistry of its carpets, which have found their way into households and museums around the world.

    A Tabriz Persian rug is a type of Persian rug originating from the city of Tabriz, in the north west of Iran.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 3, 2024
    Persian rugs are made of the finest materials, including wool, cotton and silk. Authentic Persian rugs are never made with synthetic fibers. Since Persian tribes traditionally raised and herded sheep, wool was the most common material. The fiber has many advantages: It is fire-resistant and dries much more quickly than cotton. Also, because of its natural elasticity, it is more durable than cotton or silk.

    Regarded as works of art, carpets and rugs of this kind are made by hand and can take months or years to complete.

    Iran (modern-day Persia) encompasses different cultures, languages and dialects, and its exquisite rugs reflect this diversity. The fascination with Persian rugs dates at least as far back as the 4th century B.C., when historian Xenophon referred to the “soft rugs on which the Persians sit.”

    To tell if a Persian rug is authentic, turn it over. Real ones feature hand-knotted crafting, which makes the pattern on the back the same as the one shown on the front. If you find a backing or don't see the print, you likely have a reproduction rug. On 1stDibs, find a collection of expertly vetted Persian rugs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertAugust 15, 2019

    The difference between Persian and Turkish rugs can be identified through knotting techniques and patterns. Persian rugs are knotted with a single knot, while Turkish rugs employ a double knotting technique. Additionally, Persian rugs typically have more rounded, oriental motifs, whereas Turkish rugs have more geometric designs.

  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 3, 2024
    How much authentic Persian rugs are will depend on rarity, condition, demand and more. The price of Persian rugs on 1stDibs starts at approximately $200 or $220 per rug. Persian rugs can be surprisingly costly partly because they are made with the highest quality materials. The expense of these materials will trickle down to the consumer. The long time that it takes to create these majestic works will also factor into the price.

    That depends on the size and how fine the rug is.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    To date a Persian rug, first identify the style of the rug. Look for signs of natural wear and any damage that has been repaired. Vegetable dyes, which fade over time, were commonly used before the 20th century. Modern Persian rugs are occasionally bleached to mimic natural aging, but if you examine the colors closely, you'll be able to tell authentic gradual fading from synthetic defined fading. Shop a collection of expertly-vetted Persian rugs from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    There are a few red flags you should look for in determining if you have an antique Persian rug. Firstly, check the fringe. Fringes on a Persian rug form from the end of warp yarns, and won’t be sewn on the back. Also check the colors. They should be crisp, with no bleeding of the dyes. Shop a collection of authentic Persian rugs from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    The best way to tell if your Persian rug is real silk is to simply rub the fabric. Silk will get warmer if you rub it, and likely develop a sheen. If neither happens and if the rug feels coarse, then it’s likely not real silk. On 1stDibs, shop a collection of genuine Persian rugs from some of the world’s top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertAugust 15, 2019

    Persian rugs that are authentic and hand-knotted are likely to increase in value, but returns to this investment are not expected to be immediate.
