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.

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.

When choosing an area rug, rich color and a good hand that feels nice under foot (barefoot) are essential. When determining the size, I personally prefer that all of the furniture sit entirely on or entirely off the rug —never half on or half off. Spend what you can afford.

Constructed from various materials found in nature, some tribes would focus on skinning animals for their hides, whereas others would use reeds and plants that they would weave together into a rug. In some areas, these rugs were handed down from one generation to another, and were often the family’s most prized possession due to the work and energy it took to make one.

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.

Some of the processes still used today were created thousands of years ago, and handed down through instructional writings and drawings.
