Apr 19th 2019 at 5:03 AM


When you have purchased a luxurious house which has beautiful interiors and breath taking exteriors, then you need to also spend time and effort in doing up your house. You must feel good staying in such a house and your guests must also get a warm and welcoming vibe when they visit you. You must pay attention to getting the right outdoor patio furniture and also on getting the interior decoration right. One of the most significant items in your indoor upholstery is a rug, also called a carpet in some cases.

Hundreds of years ago, carpets used to cover the hard stone floors of homes in Central and Western Asia. Gradually they began to be imported into Europe as well, but used only for special occasions or visits by important people. The Europeans also moved rugs from the floor to hang on walls, or to cover tables and benches. Over time, carpets and Barbados floor rugs also began to be crafted in the Oriental countries of Asia and many other countries as well.

The earliest remains of carpets have been found in the royal graves of the Southern parts of Siberia. These are estimated to be from the 5th century BC. Some felt carpets were also found in other parts of Asia, like the Japanese Imperial Storehouse. The art of weaving rugs and carpets in the Caucasian countries was first seen around the 13th century AD.

In China, the carpets and rugs have always have had more sober colors. A style of weaving peculiar to China was the pillar carpet, which used to be wrapped around a pillar to form a specific design, most usually that of a dragon. Aside from living room rugs Barbados, they also had smaller mats and saddle rugs.

In the Western world, Spain was one of the first countries where evidence of carpets was found around the 8th century. This could probably be attributed to this country’s close ties with the Islamic world in that era. France was also quick to pick up the art, although their designs were more local rather than Oriental. In England and Ireland, the route for the introduction of carpets as home décor Barbados probably came through Turkey. In fact, most of Europe had a history of folk weaving of carpets, whose influence might not have been entirely Oriental.

Over the centuries, carpets and rugs have become an integral part of home décor across the world.
