Hailing from the East, the ancient persimmon fruit here lends its color to a deliciously appealing rug. Flowers and leaves in the Persian tradition flutter across the thick, lustrous surface as if scattered by a summer wind.

Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
