Q&A: Where can I find a contemporary rug for a good price?

Question by Brainy Smurfette: Where can I find a contemporary rug for a good price?
I’m looking for a rug with red as the main color. It needs to be contemporary/modern with a geometric or abstract design. I’ve tried Target, Pier 1, Pottery Barn, Ikea, West Elm and even Walmart and neither of them have a rug that I just love. Does anyone know of a cool contemporary home store (not on the list) that may have what I’m looking for?

Hand Made Carpets (Area Rugs) from Turkey?

Question by : Hand Made Carpets (Area Rugs) from Turkey?
I collect HAND MADE wool, silk, and cotton Carpets / Area Rugs from Iran (Persian Rugs like Qum silk prayer rugs that I display as a wall tapistry, plus floor rugs like Tabriz & Kermanshah), Pakistan (Bukkhara)…so my question is what are the classical Turkish HAND MADE CARPETS callled (please no cheap Belgium machine made crap) and I’ve heards that they are sold at Instanbul’s Old Bazzar (if I’m saying it right, and provide info on how to bargain with vendor)…please give description by NAME (generally carpets know by city/village), PATTERN (ex geometric, medallion in center), and COLORS if possible, thanks
p.s. in the event I’m most likely to get Trolled at, YES I did say Persian Qum silk PRAYER rug, but NO I don’t pray on it I’m not Muslim, it’s just a breathtaking piece of art
@ Ipek…thanks for the info…I’ve also heard to be careful of some vendors, I was told by another collector that he had found out one Turkish vendor would place NEW carpets on a gravel road and made horse driven carriages to go over them to make them look ANTIQUE and sell to tourists…CLEVER!!! This is why I ask about pricing, do they start crazy high because they expect you to bargain or are prices fixed??
@ Ipek…I love the Kilims Caucasian geometric collection!!! because I have seen it before but do not own one, maybe I can pick one up when I visit Turkey…a trip in the planning…thanks
@ Sou…thanks for the valuable info regarding different regions, particularly silk which as you mentioned are more diffiuclt to find…as for Turkish Friends to show me around, I’d say I’ve gone none yet, BUT I’m working on that as well, thanks again

Best answer:

Answer by Ipek K
There are at least 100- if not more- models, thousands of designs and styles of rugs, tapestries and carpets. The prices and quality changes according to knot quantity, wool, silk and dye quality and rareness. Usually not two are alike – I know, because I had to have two made since I couldn’t find a pair.

As a collector, you probably know all these.

Coming to your request, you will have to do some reading since it is a very wide subject. Here are some leads for you:

http://www.turkishculture.org/pages.php?ParentID=13

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carpet

Hope it helps.

EDIT : That is why you should never buy carpets from just any vendor; always pick a reputable one and take someone with you who is an expert- especially if you are after a collectible antique piece.

There is always a marge for bargaining and there is a down limit where the vendor will not go down a Lira. The ability is to estimate it and in order to do that.. again, you would need an expert.

If you go to Kapalicarsi (Grand Bazaar) or carpet places like the one in my first link, it is quite impossible for them to try to fool you since they have a reputation to keep.

I would suggest you to check amazon.com for books for Turkish Tapestry. They have very good and informative ones.

How do you add colour to an apartment that you can’t paint?

Question by hipstamom: How do you add colour to an apartment that you can’t paint?
I lean toward modern furniture. So far I have the IKEA Klippan loveseat in dark blue and the white ILEN TV stand. I love colour and the first thing I usually do when I move in a place is paint the walls. Unfortunately, the management doesn’t allow painting the walls. What else can I do? Thanks in advance!

Best answer:

Answer by kccpmom
You could always buy a material that you love and pin it on the walls. I saw them do that one on trading spaces with some material. You could even use clear puch pins tp attach it, as long as you dont have kids or pets that will tear it down. I am considering this in my bedroom with a sheer, dark color. I got the idea from a curtan I had, I layed it against the wal, and thought it would look so nice like that. Good luck whatever you decide!

Question by sophie: What color rug for my red-brown living room?
I live in a historic home with white trim and hardwood floors. My living room walls are chocolate brown and my furniture is red leather. I’m going for more of a funky theme with vibrant colors but I am not sure what color area rug to purchase for the living room. Should I go with brown to match the walls? I cannot paint the walls because I am renting, so I’m just trying to make it work the way it is! What color rug would look best?
I am going to be using room accents (lamps, etc.) to brighten up the room with colors. What color rug will bring the room together?

Best answer:

Answer by .:xyxy:.
