Lighting on Persian/Oriental Rugs

Reply Thu 19 May, 2016 01:26 pm
I know direct sunlight on any sort of luxury rug is a "no no" but can anyone tell me whether there is specific type of lighting that works best with Persian or Oriental rugs? I just received one in an inheritance but I don't want to cause it any excessive light damage!

As with any sort of rug, avoid direct sunlight. Other forms of lighting, to my knowledge, have no adverse effects unless you're talking about super-bright spotlights.

Thanks, Ragman! I know the Ardabil Carpet on display in London is only lit at certain times of the day and only for a few minutes at a time to reduce light damage, but I've not been to the exhibit so I'm not certain whether the lights are very bright. I'll opt for soft lighting.
