In this guide, we’re going to look at the history of rug making, what type of rugs you should consider for your home, as well as what to look for, and what to avoid. An ancient art dating back thousands of years, the area rug is one item in our home that hasn’t gone out of style.
Constructed from various materials found in nature, some tribes would focus on skinning animals for their hides, whereas others would use reeds and plants that they would weave together into a rug. In some areas, these rugs were handed down from one generation to another, and were often the family’s most prized possession due to the work and energy it took to make one.
TIMOTHY CORRIGAN. Unlike most American designers who start with a rug and build the room up from there I like to take a more European approach in which the rug is just a part of the overall design; I hate it when all of the room‘s colors look correspond to the colors of the rug…that looks a little too studied or "decorated" to me.
