What is a Needlepoint Rug?

Posted by Abid Ilahi on Dec 29, 2016 12:05:14 AM

A hand made wool needlepoint rug has a flat texture resembling an antique rug in which the pile has worn down. Decorators prefer needlepoint rugs to new oriental rugs when they are decorating with antique furniture. But people unfamiliar with needlepoints can mistakenly assume they are fragile. This is untrue as proved by the experience of thousands of customers and interior designers who have used them in their own homes and say they are very durable and easy to clean. Room images at the end of this post show how decorators add glamour to living rooms, dining rooms, libraries, bedrooms and bathrooms with needlepoint rugs.
