Design Classics: Oriental Rugs

You don't have to be able to tell an Arak from a Tabriz to appreciate how good either rug looks in a room. They work well with modern or traditional decor, and they only get better with age.

Classy and classic, oriental rugs are a reliably stylish way to add color, pattern, and history to almost any room in your house. They'll add interest to a hallway (Image 10) and give a grownup feel to a nursery (Image 2). They add an unexpectedly luxurious look to the kitchen (Image 8), and, thanks to their complex patterns, they can hide stains.
