Antique rugs (carpets woven before 1920) have their own story to tell. The majority of antique rugs are Persian, but we mostly carry rare Turkish finds. Our antique rugs are selected for their age (most were woven before 1900), their unique designs and colorings (their quality of color), and their level of craftsmanship (evidenced in the sharpness of their motifs).
Whether you choose a lively colored Oushak, a cushy thick antique Moroccan rug, or a soft pastel heirloom, these rugs give a room an elegant distinction.
Oushak (ushak) carpets made in the 17th century were used in the royal houses of Europe (thus called Palace Rugs) as well as Christian churches. Oushak rugs have recurring themes: star, medallion, bird, etc. (usually with a white background).
RugsShades of Light has an extensive assortment of area rugs to complement every decor with our high standards for quality and style. At Shades of Light we have an area rug to suit every room, from dining room to deck, elegant to casual, and one of a kind antiques to playful shags.
Hand woven flatweave dhurrie rugs are a tremendous value offering a wide range of colors in designer patterns like stripes, chevrons, Greek key, Ikats, fretwork, trellis, geometrics and damasks. Woven in wool or cotton, with accents in recycled leather or sari silk, this construction is durable and reversible for longer wear.
Hand knotted wool Soumak and Oushak rugs offer timeless style with instant character while more plush woven wool rugs bring endless combinations of color and more contemporary pattern selections. Tonal solid color rugs feature hand carved patterns and combination loop and cut pile surfaces for textural interest.
Synthetic blends of bamboo silk, polyester and acrylic have added brilliant color and silky soft textures to our assortment, particularly in rugs for bedrooms and kids rooms. Natural fiber rugs are still a favorite for a more casual or coastal air with selections in sisal, jute, sea grass and hemp in woven flatweave style with colored borders, or in a soft brush cut pile with a luxurious natural sheen.
Animal hide rugs are popular with designs in albino, metallic and exotic print cowhides to layer over rugs for added allure. The fastest growing categories of rugs are high performance with polypropylene fibers that are suitable for indoor outdoor use and high traffic areas like hallways and kitchens.
These rugs do not absorb water, so they can be cleaned with a garden hose and hung out to dry!
At Shades of Light, we carry antique chandeliers, wall sconces, repurposed table lamps, and vintage floor lamps. These antique lighting fixtures have detailed craftsmanship, rich finishes, and solid materials.
