Area rugs are most commonly used in large spaces where one of the dimensions equals or exceeds 5-feet. These measurements could include 3' x 5", 4' x 6", 6' x 8" and 9' x 12". A rug in these sizes should be used as a focal point and can be placed in front of a sofa, within a seating area or under a bed. By definition, antique Oriental rugs are more than 80 years old, while vintage rugs refers to the decorative Oriental and modernist rugs that were made during mid-century (20th century) – such as the mid-century modern Scandinavian rugs and Moroccan rugs. However, many other features set these pieces apart from their newly created counterparts.

The term Armenian carpet designates tufted rugs or knotted carpets woven in Armenia or by Armenians from pre-Christian times to the present. It also includes a number of flat woven textiles. The term covers a large variety of types and sub-varieties. Due to their intrinsic fragility, almost nothing survives - neither carpets nor fragments - from antiquity until the late medieval period. Afghan rugs, like Afghanistan itself, represent a diverse range of cultures and artistic sensibilities. With some drawing heavily on Persian influences, others from more Oriental styles, and still others reflecting the unique war history of Afghanistan. An Afghan rug is both an amazing piece of art and a pinnacle of craftsmanship.
