The tombs of Egypt and Mesopotamia have given us evidence that shows flat weaving was used and even pile rugs have been dated back to 2,000 BCE in Asia and the Middle East.
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.
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!
Any rules to follow when choosing the size? Get a room sized rug. most people choose rugs that are too small. What should people expect to spend for a standard 8‘ x 10‘ rug? Only Jesus knows the answer to this. You can spend as much as you would like to! Rag rugs, sisal, even bordered an bound remnants can be very inexpensive—depends on the job, client/and budget!
