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.

Unlike most American designers who start with a rug and build the room up from there I like to take a more European approach in which the rug is just a part of the overall design; I hate it when all of the room‘s colors look correspond to the colors of the rug…that looks a little too studied or "decorated" to me.

Keep details of the room in mind; such as door swing and furniture leg placement when selecting size. A new carpet be around $15-20k, an antique will run approx $50-lOOk.

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.

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.

Carpet affects the acoustics of the room: in spaces that need a little dampening, the fullest, deepest carpet will quiet the space.
