Learn About Persian Rugs in Houston

Persian rugs are likely the best known when it comes to high-end area rugs and floor coverings. For hundreds of years, royalty and the wealthy would come to Persia from long distances to acquire these wonderful rugs. Interestingly, one Oriental rug can look much different than another. This is because within the region of Persia, there were many different sub-regions, each of which had their own style and technique for making their rugs. This helped to create a diverse array of different rugs, many of which have survived down to today.

Learn About Antique Rugs in Houston

Antique rugs can go back quite far into the past, which really makes these rugs not just a functional part of any room, but a true piece of history. The art of rug weaving goes back at least 1500 years, and likely much further than that. Finding a great antique rug can seem difficult, but it is what we specialize in. Our team brings in some of the most beautiful antique rugs from around the world, and makes them available for our customers.

Learn About Vintage Rugs in Houston

When people think of vintage rugs, they often get them confused with antique rugs. While both of them are made quite some time ago, the style is going to be different. The timeframe where they come from is also distinct. While there is no hard-cutoff date, vintage rugs are considered to be rugs that were made around 1920 and after, while antique rugs are those that were made prior to that year. Vintage rugs come from places around the world, and are some of the most popular options in our shop.

Learn About Modern Rugs in Houston

Rugs that come from the past are great for many things, but for some people, the modern rugs are a better choice. Modern rugs often have over dyed colors, which gives them a very strong and bold look. Sleek curves and shapes are also quite popular with modern rugs, though there are also designs that reflect nature patterns, and other things too. We even have rug makers who can create a custom modern rug based on your specific preferences. Whatever it is you need, we can have it for you.
