Wannabe Persian Rugs

Even in the most modern of spaces, a Persian rug has a definite appeal. The problem is that (unless you travel to the Middle East) purchasing a Persian rug is far from being a budget friendly way to add to the beauty of your flooring. Fortunately, modern designers have designed rugs that seem Persian, look Persian, and play the part of Persian very well...but when it comes down to it, these rugs are simply gorgeous impostors.

Ikea Valloby

You'd have to be a rug weaver in order to tell that this rug isn't a real Persian. The Valloby from Ikea is affordable ($129), big enough to cover a large chunk of your floor, and entirely luxurious. Photo credit/available at: Ikea.com

Pier One Imports Printed Bamboo

Who says that a great faux Persian can't be made from an eco-friendly material? Bamboo is an exceptionally green material that shouldn't be overlooked, and this rug from Pier One is no exception. Photo credit/available at: Pier1.com

Pottery Barn Eva Rug

The cool blue of this rug will really offset any room. The Eva Rug from Pottery Barn is made from yarn-dyed wool that's silky smooth to the touch. If you aren't sure about the style, order a rug swatch. Choose from various sizes (priced according to size). Photo credit/available at: Potterybarn.com

Crate and Barrel Nola Blue Rug

If you're aiming for an antique décor, then look no further than the Nola Blue Rug from Crate and Barrel. The deep tones of this rug evoke images of far-away castles and romantic evenings. In short, this rug will easily transport you from modern day to fairytale instantly. Photo credit/available at: Crateandbarrel.com

You can't beat the price of this Persian wannabe - at only $25- $335, this rug is a steal! Place the Vintage Distressed Rug in your entryway, or allow it to become the centerpiece of your guest room. With prices like these, you can scoop up both Vintage Distressed Rug sizes. Photo credit/available at: Target.com
