From animal hides salvaged for warmth under the feet in cold rock caves, to palm leaves, hay, and other vegetation being used in the forests as protection from the elements, there is no doubt that area rugs have a deeply rooted history that dates back to the beginning of evolution.

I thought that a mix of contemporary furniture and a historic carpet would imply the ascent of man and that we are continuing to evolve.
