A fresh spin on one of the best decorating classics of all time

We had them when I was growing up, but being a child I rarely gave them a second thought. And when I was a teenager and not as into "home decorating" I equated them to stuffy victorian style interiors.  But now - oh now I love them.  Oriental rugs is what I'm talking about, and lately I've been seeing them used in ways that are definitely NOT stuffy and really plays out their beauty.  Just fyi - because I wasn't sure, I looked up what region a rug must come from for it to be considered "Oriental" -

Oriental rugs are organized by origin: Persian rugs, Arab rugs, Anatolian rugs, Kurdish rugs, Caucasian rugs, Central Asian rugs, Turkestanian rugs, Chinese rugs, Tibetan rugs and Indian rugs. via Wikipeia

Do you like these rugs?

If you do, you will be excited as me by this sale. All the rugs below are only $399 and range from about 4'x 8' (some wider, some taller). They are from Momeni and are hand-knotted and one of a kind.  They have some large, but pricier ones as well.  They are selling out really, really fast though.
