ROBERT COUTURIER. I look for authenticity, as well as age in antique rug. I own about 15 of them ranging from 200 year old to a 1940 Bessarabian one. I also try to make sure they have their original colors which is quite hard since so many of them have been restored in an appalling fashion.
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.
PENNY DRUE BAIRD. Scale and design. Try to have no furniture half on half off the rug and leave an ample border around. The sky is the limit.
