I do not know what a standard rug really means. I know of antique rugs that are 8 by 10 and cost $250,000. A good contemporary rug should probably cost $10 to 15,000, unless it is a normal rug in which case $5,000 should do it, I must say that I am not quite sure.
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.
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!
