Oriental-Inspired Designer Rugs for Luxurious Interior Spaces

 Throughout history, different cultures made use of rugs for various occasions. Each had their own unique take on the pattern and colours. This caused many versions to spring up including many Oriental-inspired rugs.

Oriental rugs were traditionally made in an area called the “Rug Belt”. It stretches all the way from Morocco to North India and Asia. Rugs from those locations are typically hand woven and tend to be heavy. These hand woven, Oriental-inspired designer rugs are luxurious accessories that could help improve any interior living space.

 Turkish tribesmen had originally handwoven the Anatolian or Turkish Rugs. The materials typically used are wool and cotton. The designs make use of the primary colours red, yellow and blue. A Turkish inspired luxury rug lends itself well to dark coloured flooring and white or powder blue wall paint. The rug’s emphasis on primary colours match well and stand out from a plain background.
