I love that oriental rugs are back in style, and I’m wishing I held on to some of my old ones instead of craigslist them. A couple weeks ago I posted some of my favorite inexpensive tribal rugs. I wanted to do the same with oriental rugs because it is such a trend especially as runners in white kitchens and master bathrooms. But I will say that vintage oriental rugs cost a small fortune, and you have to do a lot of searching for the perfect color combo. Remember to avoid rugs that look like something you might find at grandma’s house. Also it’s okay to mix up modern with traditional. Some of my favorite sites to search for one-of-a-kind vintage persian/oriental rugs are ebay, etsy and eSalerugs.
Here is #9 styled as a runner. It add the best color to the otherwise black and white floor.
Also great places to search for vintage oriental rugs are flea markets, antique and estate sales.
