What to Consider When Buying Antique Rugs

Buying the right rug involves more than just picking out what looks good in your living room or workspace. Antique rug aficionados find that these one-of-a-type pieces work best with neutral wall colors, vintage and modern abstract artwork, but beyond that, they can also reflect the owner’s personality and lifestyle. Therefore, you may want to consider purchasing a quality antique rug that speaks to you on a personal level.

As an informed buyer, it is important to ensure that your chosen antique rug is made of lustrous wool and natural fibers, with vibrant colors that do not look washed out or faded. It is also crucial to make sure that the carpet lays flat and straight when placed on the floor. At our Minneapolis showroom, we give you the option of laying out the rug (or several rugs side-by-side for comparison) on our expansive floor space so that you can see how our antique rugs can look once installed in your home, and how they lay perfectly flat and straight when laid out.

All of these qualities reflect the authenticity of the rug, as well as the artisan’s impressive and traditional handcrafting skills.

Other factors to consider when purchasing an antique rug are the weave types (hand-knotted, hand-tufted, or flat-weave), style (Contemporary, Oriental, Traditional, Transitional, Tribal, Persian and Southwestern, among others), as well as shape and size (depending on its purpose).

It helps to seek guidance from our in-store staff for more tips on how to pick out the right rug for you.
