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.

Carpets also reflect history and culture (one could literally tour the globe and discover it‘s history by looking at carpets). Carpets can be art and should be purchased with one‘s budget in mind and the time line for that particular space.

The Reeve table from West Elm is reminiscent of something you`d be really fortunate to find second-hand or vintage, but if you don`t have such luck (or the patience to hunt one down), this is a really great alternative.

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.

It is most important to think about what objects you are choosing communicate, especially since you are creating a self portrait.
