It looks like a Persian rug by the design, but it looks more like a Mashhad than a Ardekan like in the film. Then again I am not an expert or even an enthusiast, but I have been looking for that specific Ardekan for under 1k for many years.

Yeah, my Grandfather has a bunch of Persian rugs in various sizes, some very large, from when they lived in Iran in the 70s. I think he is going to give some to us. They are really cool and all handmade/woven.

Haha, I was hoping to get a Big Lebowski reference. I actually do think it really ties the room together. :D

I would like to get frames for the posters but I don't really want to spend that much for them and I'm not sure where to get them on the cheap. They are also different sizes so I worry about them fitting the same frames, though I guess I could get a mount/mask for the smaller ones. If you know where to get cheap poster frames let me know. Also, if you know where to get frames the right size for the Nintendo Power posters that would be awesome.

If I am not mistaken those Nintendo Power posters are 11x24, so you can fit them in a 12x24 frame like this one:

You can easily flip the paperwork over to fake matte it on white, or add a layer of black construction paper behind it.

Id double check the measurements of the NP posters though, Im going purely on memory since google was no help.

Beautiful set up in such a small space, very clean and organized. I think my favorite touches are the blue back lighting behind your TVs, and the fact that all your consoles are clearly grouped by Nintendo, Sega, Sony, and Microsoft. Bravo sir.

Ooof, $20 + $10 shipping for those frames... this is why I've held off framing my posters. For all that money I could buy a lot of games, and I do. :P
