Kilim Fever

What is it about old and faded rugs that really gets me going? I truly have no idea. They are so romantic in an Orientalism/English Patient/souk-bazaar/Salaambo sort of way... Clearly I need more rugs in my house. Maybe something to jazz up our "Home Depot Barfed Here" bathroom.

I think I just scored two awesome rugs on CL for $40. Crossing my fingers that they aren't bug-infested, stained, or worse...
