The rug, a beautiful and richly designed piece, is believed to have been made in Mongolia, featured a hand-knotting technique called Ghiordes that is still in use today. Even though it is argued by some historians that the first woven pile rugs were made in Mongolia, it is widely agreed that it is the Persians who perfected it.

I thought that a mix of contemporary furniture and a historic carpet would imply the ascent of man and that we are continuing to evolve. Often I use a carpet to pull in all of the color elements of an interior and its adjoining views and gardens to create a harmonious continuum. I prefer a wool/silk blend for its feel and sheen, especially if people are going to roll around or play on it.

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.

I love to mix vintage rugs (Orientals right up through Navajos) with custom carpets designed specifically for texture and color. Blending them throughout a period or modern home updates the old and anchors the new.

An area rug for a single female client is very different from that for a family with 5 kids 2 dogs and a cat. I always seek out area rugs that are durable and beautiful. Durability and cleanability are two factors that are always important to me.

Always a quiet elegance—a shouting rug is never grounding to the spirit of ones soul. RON MANN. Too broad a question. Every room in the house could have an area rug. It has to do with place and function.
