Large Area Rugs
Oversized Rugs or large area rugs emerged in the market as a result of enlarging living spaces. Living spaces were smaller in the past. They became bigger and bigger parallel to the changing needs of a home. As the spaces got bigger, designers of home decor objects also had to conform to this change. Smaller carpets were used in regular homes of the past. Large carpets were made for palaces and royal families’ homes. Palace carpets were reflecting the palaces they were made for from Asia to Europe. Large carpets usually are embellished with medallions, floral and geometric designs. Some European carpets have embellishments depicting various scenes.
