oriental rugs

 
 
 

 
 
My rug weakness is an antique oushak with very faded grays and oranges.
It gets me every time.
 
Did you see the recent article in the New York Times on identifying and cleaning antique rugs?

I"m on board with faded - and gray & orange. Beautiful! Off to check out the article.

Great article! I just posted some oriental rugs from CL yesterday. Now I know what to look for.

Love this! I love overdyed vintage oriental rugs too, but the colours you have shown here don't need anything to 'bring them back to life' - so vibrant! My fav is the first one, but hey - if I had any of these I would be happy! Thanks for sharing.

I share your exact same rug weakness ... Swoon! I'm actually hoping to find a similar rug for our master.
