Antique Decorative Rugs
Antique decorative rugs are by definition the same as antique rugs; however they have decorative value and not a long lasting antique value. They are created in the same fashion, and with the same techniques, but the decoration is overshadowed by the quality in this case. They encompass the same richly deep design iconography as the Antique Decorative Carpets, but are perhaps more decorative, tribal and nomadic is tradition.
Antique decorative rugs tend to be woven by itinerant nomadic tribesman and not from the well established weaving centers. Antique Decorative Oriental Rugs tend to have a more hand made quality with a bit of whimsy. The colors can be more unexpected and quite dynamic as the focus is on the decoration and not necessarily the mastery of the weaving or knotting technique. Decorative rugs are always in vogue and needless to say, very utilitarian in function.
Antique Decorative Rugs change with the taste of the times and are dictated to by the taste-makers of the day. Just as fashion design changes with the rhythms of taste, so does interior design. Antique decorative rugs ebb and flow more frequently with the ever changing tastes of the day.
