I was checking out One Kings Lane Beneath the Feet rug sale, and my jaw nearly dropped when I spotted a Persian Khorasan rug on sale for $1169. I would kill to have a beautiful Persian rug. However, my pockets currently do not run that deep.

Instead, I scavenge Craigslist as though I am in search for a long lost family member until I find the identical twin that I always hoped for. Now, I'm not always successful, but there are times when I come across amazing steals!!! Take for instance this nearly identical Persian that I scored on Craigslist for only $100!!

I'm hoping that I can find a way to modernize something so traditional like this rug by incorporating more contemporary furnishings. I have not been able to find an inspiration photo that I really like, so I'll be working on a mood board to help direct my attention. Any ideas on how to make this piece work in a contemporary living space? Have you used a Persian rug in your home? I would love to hear / see what you came up with.
