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.

Generally speaking, a foot to foot and a half off the walls. What should people expect to spend for a standard 8‘ x 10‘ rug? There is no such thing as a standard price…it all depends on your budget!

A good repair does not affect the value, but a bad repair ruins a rug. When choosing your rug size make sure your furniture fits onto the rug.

A good modern 10x8 rug should cost you between $7,000 to $10,000 depending on the silk or wool content. A fine antique rug of that size however can cost in excess of $50,000.

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.

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.
