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.
ELLIE CULLMAN. We look for beauty and durability. Every rug should be well made with color fast dyes and good yarns and straight seams regardless of whether it is hand made of silk or machine made of wool. For bedrooms, a good rule of thumb for size is to leave approximately 12" of floor space between the edge of the rug and the base molding.
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!
