Among the seemingly chaotic lives of the Osbournes, there were some interesting rugs seen in their home.

* We have taken on the task of identifying oriental rugs and Carpets from one photograph, and one photograph only! Bear in mind, the names and key terms provided below are simple insight and suggestions as to what the rug or carpet at hand may be, not necessarily definitive information. Proper identification of an Oriental Rug or Persian Carpet by a professional should be done in person, or at least with the Rug Rag standardized Oriental Rug Identification Sample Photographs. If you have additional insight on these rugs, or have taken a particular liking to any one, feel free to comment in the field at the bottom of this entry!
