I own about 15 of them ranging from 200 year old to a 1940 Bessarabian one.

When choosing an area rug, rich color and a good hand that feels nice under foot (barefoot) are essential.

Always a quiet elegance—a shouting rug is never grounding to the spirit of ones soul. RON MANN. Too broad a question. Every room in the house could have an area rug.

After all, it is the equivalent of the ground we walk on. Pastels and white carpets should be left to the occasional-use room, and even then feel like any minute a disaster might occur.

The box-frame coffee table seems to have universal appeal, probably because its open body works just as great in small spaces as it does expansive rooms.
