Bring formal elegance home with this glorious Persian panel Royal Palace(R) rug featuring real silk accents.

Durable classic wool construction gets a dash of silky dazzle. Genuine silk adds luster and sheen, it's also a little softer than wool, so your carpet feels as rich and luxurious as it looks. So, take off your shoes and enjoy the texture. The silk accents can be found in the Ivory, Rose, Sage, and Gold details of each rug.

The incredibly popular Persian panel style comes to life in this traditional Kirman design. Each multi-colored section explodes with stylized bouquets and floral vines.

The vibrant jewel tones of the Antique Heritage color palette lend a sophisticated, old-world quality to the piece. 41 unique color shades are woven throughout the rug, creating a truly impressive heirloom appearance. For incredible dimension, the yarn is triple-dyed to create subtle variations that give the look and feel of an original. An antique-style luster washing completes the time-worn effect.

Extraordinary quality and attention to detail. Each rug is individually tufted, sheared, and carved by hand to achieve its plush feel and luxurious look. High density 80-line construction enhances the pattern for a crisp appearance.

Ideal for any decor, this rug adds beauty, durability, and style to any living space--all at an affordable price. From Royal Palace(R) Handmade Rugs.

Royal Palace® Rugs: About Rug Shedding
Some shedding is normal for a wool rug. Shedding occurs when static electricity attracts loose wool fibers, or when rubber-soled shoes—like sneakers—break off small wool fibers. This won't affect the wear of the rug. After receiving your new rug, we recommend that you vigorously vacuum it vertically, horizontally, and diagonally, with the brush set at a low setting. Repeat this for 2-3 days; it's okay if you fill more than one vacuum bag or canister's worth. This vigorous vacuuming will not harm the rug and will help minimize shedding. You can then vacuum regularly with the brush at a medium or high setting, alternating with an upholstery attachment. We recommend vacuuming once every two weeks. You'll find wool fibers in the vacuum bag but, again, this won't affect the wear of your rug.

Royal Palace FAQ

What does it mean when you talk about the "density" or "construction" of the rug, such as 70 line, 80 line, 120 line, 160 line, and 200 line?

This refers to the number of tufts in a linear foot, or 12 inches. It is a measurement of the wool pile's density. The higher the density, the more detail that can be achieved in a design. The higher the density, the more intricate shading that can be achieved. All of this results in a higher degree of design clarity. Also, a higher density rug will wear longer and be more durable.

How do I decide what size rug to buy for a room?

Dining room: We recommend a 7'6" x 10' size or larger rug. This depends on the size of your room and the size of your dining room table, both when it is closed and opened with any added leaves. Ideally, you want all of the chairs around the table to remain on the rug when a person sits in the chair and moves the chair away from the table.

Living room: We recommend a size based on the size of your living room and how you want to decorate it. One way is to purchase a large rug, size 7'6" x 10' and up, which fills the open floor space as much as possible, even with chairs and a sofa or loveseat on top of the rug. Another possibility is to create a small conversation area. Here, you could choose a rug between 5' x 7'6" and 6' x 9' in size. Set the sofa or loveseat and/or chairs off the rug to create a conversation setting.

Family room: The same suggestions apply as with the living room.

Bedroom: Again, this depends on the size of the room, but generally you can use accent-size rugs on either side of the bed and at the foot. If your room is very large, a nice decorating idea is to place the bed over a 5' x 7'6" rug with half of it coming out from underneath the bed into the room.

How do I care for my Royal Palace® rug?

We suggest you use a rug pad underneath if the rug is placed on a hard surface floor. This will prevent the rug from sliding, which can cause accidents. If your rug is placed over plush pile carpeting you will experience "bunching" and "wrinkling", especially if furniture is placed on top of it. To minimize this, we suggest double-sided "tacky" rug-to-rug padding. Rotate your rugs periodically. Over the years, foot traffic and sunlight patterns can cause fading or uneven wear if the rug is not occasionally rotated.

Vacuuming is the best way to remove everyday dirt and dust. We recommend vacuuming once every two weeks. Please set the brush of your vacuum cleaner to a high position so that it is not brushing the pile too harshly. This will cause premature wear and shedding.

Some shedding is normal for a wool rug. Shedding occurs when static electricity attracts loose wool fibers, and also when rubber-soled shoes, like sneakers, break off small wool fibers. It will not affect the wear of the rug. After vacuuming you will find wool fibers in the vacuum bag – this is normal. These are stray fibers or fibers that the brush breaks off, and this will not affect the wear of your rug.

What is a hand-hooked rug?

This is a looped-pile type of construction. This means that the yarn is tufted from the front of the rug into a foundation creating a loop for the pile. This is a low pile loop. There are three qualities of hand-hooked rugs based on the density and size of the loop. Gross Point has a large loop, Petit Point has a smaller loop, and Micro Point has a very tiny loop. The smaller the loop, the more detail that can be achieved in the design.

What is a hand-tufted rug?

This is basically the same method of construction as the hand-hooked rug, but with one major difference: the wool is tufted from the back of the rug into a foundation. The loop is set higher and then cut, so it no longer is a loop, but rather a "cut" pile.

What is a hand-knotted rug?

A hand-knotted rug is the most difficult to make because every knot is created and tied by hand. These knots are tied around a warp, which is a series of parallel threads running through the entire length of the rug, and then around a weft, the threads running across the width of the rug inserted between all of the rows of knots. The knot is the term used for a strand of wool yarn that is looped around two adjacent warp threads and cut to form the pile or surface of the rug. This type of rug allows for the most intricate and detailed designs. The fringe on a hand-knotted rug is the visible continuation of the warp threads at both ends of the rug.

How is wool processed from the sheep to the rug?

  1. First, the sheep are "shorn". Then, the fleece is washed to remove any foreign materials.
  2. Next, the wool is sorted by quality. We use only the better section of the sheep's fleece, which gives the rug's wool excellent strength, luster, resilience, softness, and durability.
  3. Then, the wool is carded to align the fibers and combed to remove the short fibers. The result is called worsted yarn.
  4. We then spin the wool into a single strand of yarn of different counts or thickness. The strands are twisted together into different types or grades of ply, such as 4 ply, 5 ply, etc.

Focal Point Piece This rug is beautiful and plush - very nice quality for the price. I put it in my foyer and it is the focal point of the area. I think the overall tone is lighter than pictured. 04-01-13
Beautiful I bought 2 of these runners for my hallways. I like that the rugs are thick, soft and a good size runner. The colors (brown, sage, tan, ivory, burgundy, dark salmon/peach) coordinate well with my decor. This is a high quality rug at an excellent clearance price. I do have to mention that I have dark cherry hardwood floors, and I started noticing a flurry of dust-bunnies on the floor. These rugs shed quite a bit. I've tried vacuuming them as per the directions included in the description, but am still seeing quite a bit of shedding. It doesn't effect the look of the rug or wear of the rug, it is just somewhat annoying. 03-30-13
DO NOT HESTITATE WITH THIS RUNNER THIS RUG IS TO DIE FOR. I was a little frustrated because there was no video and the photograph looked really blah, blah, blah!!! But I had purchased the royal floral oasis rugs and they shocked me with their beauty. Well, when I rolled this one out I almost died, it is so vibrant. I had to get this pattern because I already had a similar pattern in my living room. Which in a bit I am going to replace with a Royal Palace. I don't seem to have a problem with the shedding, it did fill my canister a couple of times, but if I didn't see it in the canister I wouldn't have even known it was shedding. I am very picky about what goes in my house. I have extremely traditional furniture and accessories. I am so pleased. BY THE WAY, IF YOU HAVE NEVER WALKED ON ONE OF THESE RUGS, YOU WILL WISH YOU COULD CARPET YOUR WHOLE FLOOR IN THEM....PLUSH, PLUSH, PLUSH 03-19-13
Great Rug Value Whoopie! Had this rug on my wish list. What a buy and on black friday I got free shipping! My husband and I love the rug. We needed a rug for the hall because of our dog. His nails tapping on the wood floors would wake the dead and he needed the traction to be able to keep his feet from sliding out from under him. The bonus for me is that the rug is soft, cushie, and decorative. The design and colors are perfect for our home. The quality is excellant...I have other wool rugs and they wear like pig iron! ;) 12-07-12
Beautiful but... This runner is really pretty and exactly what I was looking for - unfortunately it has a flaw right in the middle - my husband says he didn't notice it till I pointed it out but then he didn't notice when I painted his office pink (which was supposed to be adobe) until a week later. Guess I'll keep it because it would be such a bother to get it shipped back. My problem is in wondering where the quality control is and who should have seen this prior to my putting it on my floor. I would have given it 5 stars if not for the flaw - if you get a perfect one it is an outstanding buy. 12-06-12
Love it! I purchased this runner and the matching large area room rug about 1 year ago. It is absolutely gorgeous and holds up well. The colors are deep and vibrant. It does shed some as any new wool rug will do. If anyone is hesitating to buy this rug, DON'T. You won't be disappointed. 08-22-12
poor quality Have had this rug for several months. I also bought the 5' X 9'. They both shed a lot even after vacuuming twice a week. There are "dust bunnies* all over the house from the wool that sheds off both carpets--they are not in a high traffic area, Just think that they are poor quality wool and they are not well woven, Would not recommend buying this product. 05-10-12
Absolutely Fits the Bill .... I received this runner yesterday and was excited to open up the packaging. It is beautiful and perfect for my upstairs hallway!!! I just wish they made it in a smaller size as I need a small accent rug for the space leading to my master bedroom. 03-08-12
Love this rug! I was surprisingly shocked at how beautiful this rug is. I have been looking for a runner for quite some time to replace one that was past it's prime. The colors are perfect and it's so thick and plush...well worth the price. I'm thinking about getting a larger one for under the dining room table. Thank you QVC and Royal Palace! 03-07-12
Rug aces "Time Test" w/ flying colors - Literally Have had this runner now for several months in my small galley kitchen, where it gets lots of traffic. Continues to look beautiful. Colors still vibrant, pile is cushy and deep .... a few periodic passes with the vacuum cleaner is all it needs. Very pleased 01-08-12
Beautiful rugs BUT.... Love the colors and pattern of this rug bought it and another one to match. Since August of this year when I received them I have vacumed them almost EVERY day. They both still shed lots. At times I will get handfuls of lint. Unless you like to vacum everyday DON'T buy these rugs. I kept hoping it would get better but never has. Wish I could return them now!!!!! 12-15-11
