Initially, area rugs – as we know them today – were used for practical and protective purposes. In cold climates, they provided warmth and a comfortable and cozy bed to sleep on. In more tropical climates, they were often used for protection, from thorns, sharp rocks and even wildlife.
LAURA HUNT. Make sure it‘s made from natural materials. Any rules to follow when choosing the size? Generally speaking, a foot to foot and a half off the walls. What should people expect to spend for a standard 8‘ x 10‘ rug? There is no such thing as a standard price…it all depends on your budget!
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!
