Unlike most American designers who start with a rug and build the room up from there I like to take a more European approach in which the rug is just a part of the overall design; I hate it when all of the room‘s colors look correspond to the colors of the rug…that looks a little too studied or "decorated" to me.

Built-in bookshelves, with their visual heft and custom touches, are the ultimate luxury for the organizing-obsessed—especially if you`re renting and can only dream of such things. However, even if you do own your own place, they can often be prohibitively expensive to build. (And then there`s the matter of deciding where they should go . . . forever.)

After all, it is the equivalent of the ground we walk on. Pastels and white carpets should be left to the occasional-use room, and even then feel like any minute a disaster might occur. Note entrance and exits to the area carpet room. No need to have a corner print at an intersection.

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.

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.

The silhouette is simple enough that the materials really shine (its iron base is super sturdy!) and at 42" long, it hits that not-too-big not-too-small Goldilocks size that`s just right.
