Since the dawn of man, area rugs have been in existence. From animal hides salvaged for warmth under the feet in cold rock caves, to palm leaves, hay, and other vegetation being used in the forests as protection from the elements, there is no doubt that area rugs have a deeply rooted history that dates back to the beginning of evolution.
Our most primitive cave drawings, scriptures, and novels showcase numerous references to these rugs. Some of the processes still used today were created thousands of years ago, and handed down through instructional writings and drawings.
STEPHEN SHADLEY. I love to mix vintage rugs (Orientals right up through Navajos) with custom carpets designed specifically for texture and color. Blending them throughout a period or modern home updates the old and anchors the new.
