When you have a house with high maintenance flooring, like wood, the best option is to decorate your house with rugs. If you just love collecting rugs any way, like a piece of art, Christie’s London has just been up selling 17th century rugs for quite some time now. Their latest sale is a 17th century Laver Kirman rug which fetched a staggering $9.59 million, 20 times the estimated price it was to fetch.
Another exhibition of rugs from the 19th century is now open at Claremont. The value of these carpets is touted to be anything between $20,000 and over $500,000 for each rug.
