Founded in 1975, Momeni produces gorgeous Persian rugs such as those found in its Desert Gabbeh rug collection. These Desert Gabbeh rugs are hand-knotted in India in the tribal tradition of Iran's Gabbehs. The term "Gabbeh" means "in the rough" in Persian. As such, Gabbeh rugs are typically made from raw, natural materials. These hand-knotted Wool rugs remain true to the tribal spirit yet have been updated to include warm colors. Reasonably priced and a sight to behold, the Desert Gabbeh 04MTI is available in eight shapes and sizes, including round and runner options.
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.
