Wow check out this trend in floor rugs that I just saw when I was in Istanbul a few days ago, also appearing on the ABC Carpet & Home website — vintage carpets over-dyed a solid color to modernized them. What a gorgeous look! You can see examples below…

These imperfect carpets have been reinvented using color — first they were neutralized and then over-dyed to produce colorful compositions, some in a patchwork style. You can shop for these gorgeous rugs here. Wow!

What do you think of this trend? What is your first impression?
