Introduction to Antique Rugs in San Francisco
One of the best places for San Francisco based designers and architects to buy exceptional oriental antique rugs at Doris Leslie Blau, LLC.
The artistic significance and beauty of antique rugs and carpets has long been understood by people seeking to enhance the beauty of their interior living and working environs. Antique rugs and carpets offer practical elegance and add a warmth and delightful visual foundation to any room. Aesthetically, pre-twentieth century hand woven rugs also represent a time when rug weaving was a less commercial and more an artistic endeavor and labor of love for the weaver than it is now. Most antique rugs were produced with natural vegetable-dyed wool which reflect the pleasing colors found in nature as opposed to some of the harsh chemical-dyed wool that is frequently used in modern rug production. Antique Oriental and European rugs make a profound statement about the owner's aesthetic appreciation. While more expensive than their modern counterparts, antique rugs usually tend to appreciate in value whereas modern pieces often depreciate, making antique pieces a wise investment choice when tackling the decision of furnishing an interior.
