Saturday at Rug Ideas, Los Angeles

We worked from 12:00 to 6:00 pm on Saturday. We had a couple of cleaned rug deliveries. A client called in and wanted a delivery of a 10' x 14' rug pad. She also wanted rug protectant on one of her rugs which we did. Rug protector is an odorless, colorless, non-toxic solution that we spray on the front/face of rugs. This fabric protectant protects rugs against spills, stains and soil. It does not leave a greasy residue on the rugs at all and unlike Sctotchgard, it does not turn the rugs yellow.

We had sold a couple of rugs which were hanging on the walls of our store last week; so we hung few rugs on the walls. We use strong industrial clips to hang rugs on the racks/bars on our walls.

The rug on the right is a hand knotted 8' x 11' Persian rug with overall/floral design from the famous city of Mashad in north east Iran. It is a matter of taste and preference. Some of our clients like this type of traditional and classic design with medallions, while some like the diamond shape medallions in the center of rugs. Some clients like classic and traditional designs while others prefer modern and contemporary designs.

The rug in the middle is an 8' x 10' hand knotted Persian Lilian (Lilihan) rug. This design has four corners and a central medallion. This is a collectible piece. The rug on the right is called shag and has high piles of longer than an inch. It gives you a good mattress type of cushioning. It has almost no design and this is what many of our clients like. We sell and clean shag rugs.
