JUAN MONTOYA. First of all I look into the climate (tropical, mountain, cold, etc) before choosing material and design. Size depends on if I want the floor to show or not, but also to delineate the space.
CECIL HAYES. I usually choose hand knotted area rugs in my installations because of their durability. A good rule to follow when selecting a size is always choose a rug that is between 1/2 and 3/4 the size of the furniture grouping. The average cost for an 8‘ X 10‘ area rug is $3,000 to 3,500.
I like it when a room looks as if it has evolved over time. I buy almost all of our antique carpets at auction because the mark-up at most rug dealers is really high!
