Ghoochan rugs can look very much like Caucasian Rugs and others can be mistaken for Baluch Rugs. Ghoochan or Quchan is an important collection point for Kurdish and Afshar tribal and village rugs and share similar designs. These rugs are characterized by geometric patterns with a considerable Turkmen influence. They also bear similarities with other Kurdish rugs from eastern Iran. The texture is that of soft wool with a thin, tight pile. Warps are mostly cotton and the weft is either cotton or wool. [ref. Old Carpet Persia]
Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
