A hand-knotted rug from the Spice Market collection is crafted of vintage pure wool rugs from Afghanistan which are dyed in subdued British flag colors, then pieced together to create the flag motif. Spice Market rugs are made in Turkey and retail for $1,700 for the 5'7" x 7'10" size.
Safavieh's Britannia storage trunk is designed for use as an end table, or in pairs as a coffee table.
