Vintage Persian Area Rug

This old vintage wool Persian area rug just might be one of my favourite decorating elements in our house. I adore all the colours in it and the bold statement it adds to our library. I also love its large size of 12′ by 14′. When we moved into our new home I feared it would not fit in our tiny space but it fits like a glove.

The rug originally belonged to my spouse’s German aunt; it made the trip to Canada with my spouse back in 2002.

It is a keeper!
