WALLACE CUNNINGHAM. It is most important to think about what objects you are choosing communicate, especially since you are creating a self portrait. Carpets can state something very personal about a person‘s history and interests, as well as making political and religious statements.
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.
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!
