A Brief History of the Art of Carpets
Nomadic tribes invented the art of carpets ten thousand years ago to protect from the harsh, biting winters; they were more helpful than earlier sheepskin coverings and could be placed easily on their pack animals. They also functioned as decorative elements for their portable tents.
The oldest known carpet, the Pazyryk Carpet, from Armenia, boasts a rich, vivid red fabric with bright yellowish threading on its geometric designs. Though parts of it have been destroyed, it still showcases a carpet’s innate artfulness and beauty.
Despite their functionality and beauty, carpets did not see widespread use and availability before the 1940s. When factory conditions led to advancements in artificial fibers, loom, and machine efficiencies, carpets became mass-produced and marketed to the broader public. Now, coupled with improved design and practical and better manufacturing, what was once relegated to the elite and upper classes, suddenly, everyone can afford to have a rug in their homes!
How A Carpet Can Change A Room
Below are several tips on how a carpet can transform the look and feel of a dull space.

The more intricate and elaborate the carpet’s patterns, the more it can attract the eye, but for rooms that need attention on their walls and furniture: a more uniform pattern or coloration might be required.
