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.
For most of our projects, I tend to look for interesting patterns that work with our color scheme. Scale is everything! Keep details of the room in mind; such as door swing and furniture leg placement when selecting size. A new carpet be around $15-20k, an antique will run approx $50-lOOk.
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!
