A magic carpet ride

When it comes to romance, we want it to be long-lasting and just get better as the years pass.

The same can be said about carpets. Rugs Oriental stocks a beautiful array of stunning vintage and modern carpets from the exotic Middle and Far East, hand-knotted and woven from fine materials like silk, wool and some cotton.

The wonderful thing about these carpets is that the more you walk on them, the more lustrous they become. They were made to be used, but when you walk into Rugs Oriental you might still be inclined to try and skirt around the works of art adorning the floor out of habit. Worry not; all feet are welcome here.

Of course these pieces are so lovely; they can be hung on the wall to be appreciated from another angle. They completely lend themselves to the landscapes of homes and offices, giving the rooms in which they reside colour and warmth.

Although you may feel that the carpets in Rugs Oriental are out of your price range, you would be surprised at what you can find here.

Some of the smaller items are around $100 ranging all the way up to huge Chinese silks that seem to give off their own light. Make sure you take the time to look at the back of these carpets. The fine workmanship will astound you.

Rugs Oriental also stocks hand-woven robes from Turkey for under $100, pashminas, and other smaller items like freshwater Baroque pearl jewellery. In many ways these pearls are more beautiful than their more uniform relatives due to their uneven shapes and sizes.

This is the perfect shop for browsing, and once you step inside you’ll be surprised at the variety of goods available for purchase.

Sometimes it’s difficult to think of something different to buy for that special someone when it comes to Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for a unique and beautiful gift that you know will last for years, and just gets better with age, Rugs Oriental may have just what you’re looking for.

There is no charge for simply looking, and you’d be surprised what you’ll learn about these fascinating carpets that have adorned homes and palaces for thousands of years.
