Maybe you’re asking yourself, “Why should I buy an oriental rug?” Perhaps you should be asking, “Why NOT?”
 There are all sorts of reasons to buy one of our beautiful, handmade rugs. Here are just a few:

VISUAL APPEAL
An oriental rug’s colors and designs can transform a room. Maybe you have been trying to decorate your living room, searching high and low for the right pieces of furniture, the perfect accent pillows and throw blankets, or trying desperately to find that one piece of art to hang on the wall. Still, something just doesn’t feel right. It’s possible that you’ve overlooked a simple solution to your problem. Stop by Nilipour Oriental Rugs and we’ll help you tie everything together with one of our beautiful, handmade rugs. Oriental rugs are pieces of art in and of themselves. Like a painting or a photograph, they have their own individual story. The intricate, hand-knotted designs indicate a labor of love and a rug’s origin and history can serve as a conversation starter for endless dinner parties and countless house guests.

FUNCTIONAL AND PRACTICAL
It’s a common perception that oriental rugs are just for show, placed only in rooms that are rarely frequented and see little foot traffic. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. The truth is, a hand-knotted oriental rug will hold up to foot traffic better than the typical machine made rug or carpeting. The construction of a hand-knotted oriental rug is superior in that each knot is packed by hand. No machine can pack the wool like the human hand. Also, hand-knotted rugs are made from all natural materials like wool, cotton and silk that don’t break down as quickly and are less likely to fall apart. The durability of hand-woven wool far surpasses the synthetic fabric used in machine made rugs — while a machine made area rug lasts for only a few years, one of our hand-knotted oriental rugs can last for decades. Hand-knotted oriental rugs retain their original appearance longer than rugs made of other fabrics.

MORE THAN A RUG

While it’s easy to come up with a list of pros when it comes to purchasing an oriental rug, the list of cons is much shorter. Usually, the only drawback one can think of is the price. Yes, an oriental rug is more expensive than your normal area rug. But when you buy an oriental rug, you’re not just purchasing a rug, you are making an investment. Nilipour is the direct importer so there is no hassle of a middle man which means they can provide you wholesale prices! As mentioned before, oriental rugs are pieces of art, specifically, art you can tread on. One can either go to a big box store to buy a mass-produced piece to hang on their wall or one can go to an art gallery. Going to an art gallery says you’re not just buying a piece of art, it says you’re making an investment. And that’s what you get when you visit Nilipour Oriental Rugs — you leave with more than a rug, you leave with a piece of art that can be handed down from generation to generation and that accrues value over time.
