All love has a starting point and most love renews itself over time.
When it comes to area rugs, a resurgence happened in Europe in the early 1800's. Everything from the Orient became the items to possess.
One of my favorite area blogs, Tea and Carpets, wrote great post telling why Europe fell back in love with area rugs
No matter why you love your area rugs, as long as you love and use them. No all rugs have to be used on the floor either. Some make great wall hangings. Silk, viscose, and a beloved treasure make the best wall art.
Enjoy reading Tea and Carpets blog, I do.
