While allowing my imagination to wander before choosing a carpet for my studio, I considered the most beautiful carpet I have ever seen (the carpet on the chapel balcony at Fontainebleau - Savonnerie(?) and inquired about the cost of such a carpet). Reality, of course, set in.

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.

Carpets also reflect history and culture (one could literally tour the globe and discover it‘s history by looking at carpets).

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.

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.
