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.

Sometimes you like the carpet to appear as an island in a hard space, supporting the furniture, and sometimes you like it to fill the entire space. There are no rules.

It is most important to think about what objects you are choosing communicate, especially since you are creating a self portrait. Carpets can state something very personal about a person‘s history and interests, as well as making political and religious statements.

A good rule to follow when selecting a size is always choose a rug that is between 1/2 and 3/4 the size of the furniture grouping. The average cost for an 8‘ X 10‘ area rug is $3,000 to 3,500.

What should people expect to spend for a standard 8‘ x 10‘ rug? Only Jesus knows the answer to this. You can spend as much as you would like to! Rag rugs, sisal, even bordered an bound remnants can be very inexpensive—depends on the job, client/and budget!

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.
