Sofas always look better on a rug rather than off or worst still half on and half off. 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.
Initially, area rugs – as we know them today – were used for practical and protective purposes. In cold climates, they provided warmth and a comfortable and cozy bed to sleep on. In more tropical climates, they were often used for protection, from thorns, sharp rocks and even wildlife.
PENNY DRUE BAIRD. Scale and design. Try to have no furniture half on half off the rug and leave an ample border around. The sky is the limit.
