Brandon Oriental Rugs

The rug is an overall Herati pattern common in many Persian rugs: Tabriz, Bidjar (Senneh), Hamadan. You won't find a worn out rug like this through a dealer (as a rule); but many similar pieces in good repair exist. If you want the nearly threadbare look, search the online auctions.

Just want to add, that despite decades of service (likely in other venues by other owners) that rug still has beauty and utility permitting use here in a significant space.

Judging from its condition, the rug deserved more respect over the years; but we can all appreciate that it does deserve respect; and seems to be getting a good bit of it in its new home.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Alison Aves added this to Houzz Tour: It's A Bloomsbury Life
French doors lead to a balcony, so there's still plenty of light in the room. "I am endlessly attracted to cozy, colorful, bohemian homes layered with history and meaning — lots of textiles, books and personal mementos," Borgnes-Giramonti says.
Becky Harris added this to I Spy: Union Jacks
Here Borgnes-Giramonti used a different Union Jack throw pillow with a whole other mix of patterns — a blue and white ceramic Chinese garden stool, a trellis pillow, an Oriental rug, and the striped desk chair. Where to find your own Union Jack throw pillow? Many options are available on Etsy, and Jonathan Adler makes a needlepoint version.
Lily Gahagan added this to 8 Tips for Layering Rugs
Fill in the blank. When you seriously love a rug but it doesn't quite cover the area you need it to, it's prime for layering. Stick a simple rug underneath in a natural material (jute, rattan or seagrass work well) to cover the difference.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 6 Great Places for a Natural Fiber Rug
1. Offices and dens. One of my favorite tricks is to use a sisal or jute rug underneath a smaller vintage Oriental, Oushak or Kilim rug. When you find a vintage rug that is too small for the room but want to use it anyway, a great solution is to layer it on top of a natural fiber rug.
Becky Harris added this to Home Styles: New Traditional Design
Old and new elements coexist in harmony all over the home. In this room, a well-worn oriental rug set atop a seagrass rug holds a Chinese Garden Stool, traditional in style but a modern idea for a coffee table. The sofa has a mid-century modern aesthetic, the desk is modern and the French doors add country flair. The pop of bold throw pillows lets us know which decade we're in. See the rest of this home
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to The Den Makes a Comeback
Office den: Turn your home office into something more by creating a den-like feel with dark walls, layered rugs, and a cozy spot to curl up with a book. Next: More ideas for dens
Suzy Cacic added this to How to Shop for a Persian Rug
Watch out for the design and trends of the rugs and buy one that has a classic design which never goes out of style. Trends and colors popular now may soon look dated, and the value of these rugs will decrease. A traditional design gives you a unique piece that always feels current.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Eclectic
Style Secret: Layered TexturesTexture gives an eclectic space its depth. Nearly every surface in this living room brings something different to the party: the nubbly Oriental rug over coarse sisal; the rich wood of the floors and trim; the thick, lush upholstery fabrics and sleek desk. A rich collection of textural elements makes a space appeal to our senses and resonate on a visceral level.Road-test it: This one's easy — play by the rule of opposites. If you have shiny pieces, add matte ones. Offset metal with wood and plastic with porcelain. Marry smooth silk with coarse burlap. Use your hands as much as your eyes to gauge the level of textural interplay you've achieved.
Get your creative wheels turning.A few more prompts to help get you started:• Are you a rich-color lover at heart but live in a white box? • Which colors make you instantly happier? • How do you respond to bright or bold color?• Do you have any strong color dislikes?Think back on some of your favorite memories. Which colors do you associate with these times?I hope this has sparked your imagination and given you some food for thought on bringing color into your home. Now I would love to hear from you. Tell me: Are you a color lover or do you prefer white and neutrals? Have any painting horror stories or great successes to share? How would you like the colors in your home to make you feel?

Samantha Schoech added this to Mismatched Rooms Made in Heaven
Isn't this lovely? Something about black walls really adds gravitas to a room. But the décor itself is a mixture of traditional, ethnic, formal and modern. Plus, there's that tongue-in-cheek Union Jack pillow.See the rest of this homeMore:Pattern Play: Mix Prints for a Traditional-Modern LookSo Your Style Is: EclecticDecorating Secrets: How to Layer Patterns Right
Samantha Schoech added this to Trend Alert: The Modern Chesterfield Sofa
A very midcentury modern take on the chesterfield. It is what makes this eclectic room modern.
Put them where they're needed most. Rugs are great for anchoring a room. In fact, many interior designers base a room's look around the rug. Sure, there are many good reasons to do this, but most of us don't have the luxury of reinventing a living area from the ground up once our floors start to age. Instead, just strategically place cover-ups near doors that lead to outside and on heavily trafficked hallways and other paths.
Rug on rug. Pattern and texture are layered beautifully here. A small worn antique carpet placed atop a larger sea grass rug is a great way to expand the perceived size of an area rug.

Pair an oriental rug with exposed floorboards The oriental rug in Bridget’s flat matches and enhances the soft, warm colours in her scheme. Oriental rugs always look great with exposed floorboards, but for an extra Bridget-approved touch, go for unpolished, naturally distressed wooden floorboards.
