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.

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.

Even after the invention of printing, books were still such a rare luxury that they were commonly kept in a chest or on one shelf beneath a desk. The history of bookcases was also connected with the medieval fittings of college libraries in Britain.
