The shape of the carpet is entirely dependant upon the shape of the room and the layout of the furniture. Sometimes you like the carpet to appear as an island in a hard space, supporting the furniture, and sometimes you like it to fill the entire space. There are no rules.
I like it when a room looks as if it has evolved over time. I buy almost all of our antique carpets at auction because the mark-up at most rug dealers is really high!
LAURA HUNT. Make sure it‘s made from natural materials. Any rules to follow when choosing the size? Generally speaking, a foot to foot and a half off the walls. What should people expect to spend for a standard 8‘ x 10‘ rug? There is no such thing as a standard price…it all depends on your budget!
While modern homes are trendy, even the most minimalist designers use heirloom-quality rugs to add a touch of elegance and sophistication. The cost of rugs is as diverse as the designs and while some can be found for under $100, there are many that cost small fortunes to procure.
