On the Hunt: Sourcing Antique Rugs

Confession: I have an addiction to sourcing Persian and Turkish rugs online. They add warmth, character and sophistication to any room. I think all homes need to incorporate a few vintage or antique pieces and a rug is the perfect way to do just that. 

If you're scared to commit in a big way, purchase a smaller rug and try it out in your entry, kitchen or bathroom.

So, where do you find these rugs? Although it can be a little risky (and time consuming to scroll through dozens of pages), I've found the most affordable antique rugs are online. Here are the top sources we scour for one-of-a-kind gems:
