Tabriz rugs are some of the most expensive rugs available. They feature complex and classic floral or geometric designs. The palette of a Tabriz rug is well chosen to emphasis the complexity of the design yet blend into a powerful but not overwhelming statement. A Tabriz traditional pattern rug is a fantastic and enhancing accoutrement to modern clean lines and simple style.
With the advent of machine made rugs, this hasn't changed. Tabriz rugs are elegant and beautiful regardless of the method of manufacturing. One of the benefits of machine made over hand knotted rugs is the price. If you want to put that dash of elegance in an area that gets a lot of traffic, but don't want to spend as much, machine made is the way to go. That leaves you to put the antique rug in an area where it can be admired and gently used.
Wool rugs last for a very long time with proper care. Please research further before doing anything drastic to your rug.
