Who says we can't bring our exotic flair for decor into the workplace? Treat your office to a taste of Central Asia with the Timuri Mouse Rug ($12), we're sure they'll appreciate the pretty pattern. Man, we're a sucker for anything mini.
Handwoven Timuri rugs are like gold to antique dealers. Real ones are made by people of the Timuri tribes in east Iran and Afghanistan. Plenty of people may think of these as purely decorative, but actually, they're prayer rugs, rich with symbolism, and the earliest examples date back to the last quarter of the 19th century.
