GEOFFREY BRADFIELD. I must confess that we don‘t use standard‘ rugs on our projects. Custom rugs are a signature in our interiors. However, we do use sisal rugs, which are not expensive, and these can cost between $5,000-$10,000 for that size.
For living rooms rugs, we would leave about 18"-24" off the wall depending on the size of the room and whether or not the room is shaped or if there is a hearthstone. We don‘t shape rugs around hearthstones. From simply bound sisals in a catalog to precious antiques at a good rug dealer, rugs come in an enormous range of prices and styles.
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!
