I’ve been on the look out for a vintage Persian rug for the kitchen as I thought it would add some lovely character to our new black and white design. I love the colour and dimension Persian rugs can bring to an otherwise neutral space.
I started watching eBay for different Persian style rugs to see what elements I was drawn to and what prices they were going for. This was so helpful as I quickly realized that all my favourites were predominantly red and had mostly smaller scale designs.
When I found this one, I fell in love. A beautiful 2′ x 5′ wool rug for $100 from this eBay store. I couldn’t find anything else I loved that was the right size for the right price. It’s actually new, but it’s been distressed a bit to look worn and it’s a beautiful, wool weave. So I snatched it up and held my breath until it arrived a few days later. And I have to say I’m totally in love.
It’s really a beautiful rug and it adds so much life to our kitchen. It’s colour and design hides our spills and crumbs so well that I don’t worry about it at all. Which is so important to me for a kitchen rug.
What are your must-haves in a kitchen rug? Have you ever bought a rug off eBay?
