With collections from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Turkey, Iran, and Morocco, each of our rugs highlight the intricate design and rich history of their region of origin.
Finding the right rug for you
Defining the color
Luxury rugs are not just floor covering - they are an art form. Hand-woven by skilled artisans, each rug can tell a story about the culture and history of its people. Traditional high-end rugs are often made from natural fibers, which are dyed using plant-based dyes. The patterns and colors of the rug can vary depending on the region where it was made. For example, Persian rugs often feature bold geometric patterns, while Turkish rugs tend to be ornate and colorful. Our popular Modern and Transitional collections also feature a rich neutral color palette made up of muted, natural tones inspired by the hues of the earth.
Identifying Luxury Rug Materials
Most of our extensive rugs are designed in Los Angeles by Mehraban artists and handmade around the world using materials such as silk, cotton, and wool to create heirloom-quality pieces that are softer and more durable than standard options. Our collections additionally include unique material combinations using Mohair, Cashmere, and Bamboo Silk, to mention a few, that add depth and interest to any space. As purveyors of antique and modern rugs for three generations, Mehraban also offers its expertise to properly care for and restore your luxury rugs.
When it comes to choosing the material for you, there are a few things to keep in mind. If the rug is going to be in a high-traffic area, choosing a material that withstands wear and tear is key. Wool, for example, is one of the most durable materials on the market and will last for years with proper care.
Sizes, Shapes, and Forms
Finding the right size for your luxury rug is important to achieve a harmonious design. If you are placing the rug in a living room or other large space, you'll want to make sure that the rug is large enough that all of the furniture in the room can sit comfortably on it. A good rule of thumb is to leave at least 18 inches of bare floor around the perimeter of the rug. This will create a border that helps define the space and makes it feel more cohesive. Using our size tool will help to narrow down your selection of rugs, based on the width and length you require for your space.
If you are placing the rug in a smaller space like a bedroom or office, you'll want to make sure that the rug doesn't overwhelm the room. In this case, leaving at least 12 inches of bare floor around the perimeter of the rug could be a good practice.
Ultimately, you'll want to choose a size that feels right for your space and your personal style. You can also try layering rugs to add visual interest and achieve the right amount of floor coverage.
