MITCHELL TURNBOUGH. When choosing an area rug, rich color and a good hand that feels nice under foot (barefoot) are essential. When determining the size, I personally prefer that all of the furniture sit entirely on or entirely off the rug —never half on or half off. Spend what you can afford.
The rug, a beautiful and richly designed piece, is believed to have been made in Mongolia, featured a hand-knotting technique called Ghiordes that is still in use today. Even though it is argued by some historians that the first woven pile rugs were made in Mongolia, it is widely agreed that it is the Persians who perfected it.
SUZANNE LOVELL. Keep all the furniture legs on the rug. Always a quiet elegance—a shouting rug is never grounding to the spirit of ones soul. RON MANN. Too broad a question. Every room in the house could have an area rug. It has to do with place and function.
ELLIE CULLMAN. We look for beauty and durability. Every rug should be well made with color fast dyes and good yarns and straight seams regardless of whether it is hand made of silk or machine made of wool. For bedrooms, a good rule of thumb for size is to leave approximately 12" of floor space between the edge of the rug and the base molding.
