Some people have a preconceived idea that all oriental rugs are red and blue and are too busy. Not true. They come multi-colored or monochromatic. Busy or relaxed. Loud colors or all neutrals. Floral or geometric. There is truly an oriental rug out there for just about everyone. I have converted many clients from hating oriental carpets to loving them. One of these clients ended up buying ten carpets for her large home. I’m not suggesting that you use them everywhere, but I am saying to mix up your carpets and have some patterned and some plain for an interesting look. Men! Buy your significant other an oriental rug for the holidays. Better yet, take her along and let her pick it out. She will love you for it.
Where should you go to make your purchase? Why not go where I go? I’ve been going to Shayan Persian Carpets for over 20 years, and I only go to Shayan for my oriental rugs. Jon travels directly to the villages where the carpets are made, thus eliminating the middlemen and keeping the costs down. In addition, Jon’s quiet, pleasant, polite manner makes him real a pleasure to work with. Shayan Persian Carpets, 14240-J Sullyfield Circle, Chantilly, VA 20151, 703/968-6969.
