I've been on the hunt for a new bedroom rug lately, and have been considering a Persian rug. I'm not a traditionalist at heart, but I do like the balance of streamlined, contemporary furnishings with more time-honored pieces. So I'm thinking one of Pottery Barn's Persian-style rugs could be quite intriguing alongside my slick modern Parsons desk and Tulip chair. If any of you are in the same boat, now's the time to buy . . . all of PB's Persian-style rugs are 20 percent off! I love the sky blues in the Maren Rug ($149-$799), but they're actually all pretty fabulous!
