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.

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.

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.

He`s not crazy, or aggressive, necessarily: he simply has a penchant for the shape and thickness of acrylic tables from the 60s and 70s, and so has identified the surface as his canvas.

"Certainly I understand the DDC`s [Dewey Decimal System] advantages when when it comes to large-scale collections," he writes, "but if how we choose to organize our personal effects says something about who we are, then an arbitrary numeric system says very little about me."

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.
