Rugs 101 - An Introduction to Fine Area Rugs
Hand knotted oriental rugs are more than just a floor covering, they are an art form with a history spanning thousands of years and a wide variety of cultures. Handmade rugs are used as protection from the elements, decoration for dwellings, objects of desire, and family heirlooms for people from all walks of life.
At Serafian's, we know buying and caring for an Oriental rug can be an intimidating process. You don't need to be an expert to find the rug that suits you, but we feel education is a great way to begin the experience of purchasing and owning a fine area rug. Our rug professionals have built a wealth of knowledge through decades of experience, and enjoy sharing and guiding our customers towards understanding the vast history, tradition and craft surrounding the world of these beautiful and time honored works.
