Eyedia Discount Rugs | Top 5 Reasons Why Oriental Rugs are the Best

5 Reasons Why Oriental Rugs are the BEST!

Oriental Rugs Louisville KY

You can’t beat the value, durability, beauty, and functionality that a fine oriental rug gives to your space. Quality, Oriental Rugs will last for generations, age beautifully, and possibly even appreciate over time. They can be a magnificent combination of function, beauty, and value. They are true works of art that we all live on.

In the last 20 years, many methods of making a rug have been introduced that take less time and labor to produce, but nothing can compare to an oriental rug.

5 Reasons Why Oriental Rugs are the BEST!

  1. A rug can only be called an oriental rug if it has been hand knotted. Authentic Oriental rugs have a distinctive feature that no machine can replicate. The weaver attaches the nap to the base threads with special types of knots that can only be made by hand. In the machine-made versions, the nap is simply stuck between the weft threads and the base threads. It is not knotted down. This can make a tremendous difference to the appearance as well as the durability of the finished rug.
  2. The technique of hand knotting a rug or carpet has been handed down from generation to generation. The yarn is wrapped and then knotted around each warp thread. Each yarn is then hand-cut and hand-tamped to form a tightly constructed hand-knotted oriental rug. One of the world's oldest hand-crafts and the most valuable.
  3. The art of hand knotted oriental rugs is one of the world’s oldest hand-crafts and the most valuable. Completion time depends on the type of rug. As an example, a 9’x12′ Persian rug that has 500 knots per square inch would take 4-5 artisans working 6 hours a day and 6 days a week approximately 14 months to complete.
  4. Oriental rugs will clean easily, age beautifully, and can be repaired if they are damaged.  These works of art hold their value and in some cases when they are 50 to 100 years old, are worth a lot more than their purchase price.
  5. An Oriental rug is soft to the touch and forever plush due to the wool that is used to make them. Some include a wool and silk blend fiber making them even softer while still being very durable.

Find Quality Area Rugs at Half the Price at eyedia!

This is the time of year many of us are putting away our holiday décor and suddenly see our home as, well, bland or needing some pizzazz.  Now that the tree and lights are down in my living room it reminds me that I really need a rug on the floor to pull my room together.  I am around beautiful rugs for sale every day at eyedia and I simply cannot offer one good reason as to why I do not have a rug on my living room floor.  Especially since I have always had a passion for rugs.  The options are endless – the colors, textures, and the personality that an area rug instantly gives a room.  It is where I usually begin when I am designing a space in our showroom.

We receive rugs of all styles:  Modern Rugs, Oriental Rugs, Accent Rugs, Runners, Braided Rugs, Jute or Sisal Rugs, and Indoor/Outdoor Rugs just to name more than a few!  eyedia is a consignment store, however, we also have an amazing assortment of new rugs for sale as part of our selection at great prices.  Most importantly we hold the same quality standards to our consigned area rugs that we hold for our furniture and accessories.

Customers will come in to eyedia looking for inspiration for a room and when I mention looking at our area rugs it many times will give them color ideas as well as thinking about what buying a rug could do to transform their space.  Whether it is a hand crafted oriental area rug or a machine made modern area rug – it will shape, divide, and/or anchor your space.  Sometimes rolling out a rug will define the conversation area in your living room for the first time!

One of my favorite combinations is to take a modern or mid century sofa and place it on a vibrant geometric oriental rug with a modern glass top coffee table.  The beautiful hand knotted rug instantly becomes the art in the room.  Everything can build off of that oriental rug – the color of the walls, the lamps you choose, where the furniture is placed and so on…

I am going to get serious about finding a rug  – finally!  I invite you to come in and shop our entire selection of rugs for sale – it changes daily.  You might just find your inspiration piece!
