Persian Rug

Ever since I stayed at Hotel Kunstof in Vienna, I've been wanting a vintage persian rug. Because of their geometric designs, I thought it was a real nice way to tie in the something old with all of the modern stuff they had going on. A cute little boutique hotel outside the city center, Kunstof ("art house") had changing installations of local artists. I loved the knit cozies for the columns in the lobby and especially the stag craddling a baby...the receptionist couldn't remember the artist's name.

Anyway, ebay has some pretty cheap rugs, like this runner that I want to put in my hallway. It goes for $230 and is 3'4"x9'11 handmade in Iran.
