Nicollette Sheridan Caught by Paparazzi Purchasing Oriental Rugs

So what kind of Rugs are those anyway?  According to one of the employees at Pacific oriental rugs on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, Sheridan ended up purchasing three pakistani Carpets before leaving the showroom on September 30th, 2008.  Sheridan was seen viewing Peshawar/Chobi and Bakhtiari Rugs.

Depending on wool quality, knot density, and special type of washes, the retail cost of these rugs can be anywhere from $15 - 150 per square foot.  To give an idea, most choice quality peshawar carpets are often found in the $30 to $60 per square foot range at a retail store, or approximately $3,000 to 6,000 for a 9' x 12'.
