A rug is one of the quickest ways to completely transform the look and feel of a space. Whether you prefer bold color or soft neutrals you can't go wrong with pattern. Vintage Turkish and Persian rugs are typically one of a kind and will stand the test of time since they are made by hand with quality materials. They add lots of personality and are fairly durable as well. New rugs are typically more plush under foot and can be more affordable.
I prefer a mix of both vintage and new rugs and I've included eighteen of my favorites here, some from each category. Etsy is my favorite place to find vintage rugs, it just takes time and patience to find those gems. Use search terms like vintage, antique, distressed, Persian, Turkish, Oriental, Heriz, Malayer, Oushak, Tabriz and the primary color you're looking for to narrow down your search.
