After collecting my fair share of rugs over the years I have learned that I still have a lot to learn in this industry. But one thing has always remained, I am amazed by the detailed beauty that is created in each textile.

Young or New Rugs refer to rugs made in the last 20 years. They are often less worn and woven with more on trend colors. These rugs are typically more expensive than vintage. On average they double the cost of our vintage pieces, around $40-$45 sq ft.
Vintage Rugs refer to those ranging in age from 20-99 years old. These rugs vary greatly in condition and pricing. But will typically be less expensive than their younger generation and will continue to hold their value. They may have repairs, only adding to their amazing character and stories they hold. The average cost of our vintage pieces range from $20-$30 sq ft.
Antique Rugs refer to those rugs over a 100 years old. Can you believe that? Something that has been so used and loved for over a 100 years can not only hold its value but become more treasured. These will always be more expensive and will continue to increase in value. These collector's items may contain repairs but when done by experienced experts never decrease its worth.
The specific years may vary among different stores & dealers. Always ask but these are the guidelines Lou Collection will use for our pricing and categorizing purposes.
