A fine traditional rug is a gorgeous addition to any style of home decor, but it's at its most splendid when it graces a home that is classically furnished and decorated with antiques or lovely reproductions. Traditional rugs range from antique and new Persians to Turkish kilims to hand-knotted Pakistani to Berbers to Chinese, Navajo, and more. Their fibers include wool, silk, cotton, and fine synthetic, and production techniques run the gamut from handmade to machine-woven. The common denominator of traditional-style rugs are the classic designs and tonal influences that have lasted the test of time. As an important investment for your home, and with so many options available, it's critical research well before making your purchase.
