Oriental and Persian rugs are big right now, but the truth is, they’ll always be in. They’ve been around for several hundreds of years and they’ll be around that many more. They work across all styles–modern, traditional, farmhouse, bohemian, industrial–and add a great deal of interest, pattern, warmth and charm to a room. We have a few in our home from eBay, Etsy, eSaleRugs, and The Vintage Rug Shop in our home that I love to pieces, but it’s always a little disheartening to tell our readers, “Sorry! It’s a one-of-a kind” when they ask where they can get the same eye-candy under foot.

I know that if you hunt long enough and search high and low with a little bit of patience, you will be able to find one in your price range and size you need (Persian rugs generally come in very unstandard sizes). But, prepared to spend more for the real thing.

However! For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to round up a few of my favorite Persian and Oriental-inspired rugs that aren’t one of a kind. And don’t cost an arm and a leg. And come in all the sizes you’re accustom to seeing. And they’ll add the same dose of character to your space that you’ve been aching for.

Click on any rug for more information, or hover to see the price!

Many, if not all, of these options are available in multiple sizes and I would put any one in our home. Hope this makes the “vintage” rug hunt a little easier for some of you!

looking for inspiration? 

We recently painted the trim and hallway doors the most dramatic shade of red, and I find myself making excuses to pass through this part of our house. It’s so rich and romantic and glossy and inspiring. It’s like the hallway is wearing lipstick. She’s feeling herself :) I can barely remember what it looked […]
