GEOFFREY BRADFIELD. I must confess that we don‘t use standard‘ rugs on our projects. Custom rugs are a signature in our interiors. However, we do use sisal rugs, which are not expensive, and these can cost between $5,000-$10,000 for that size.
Since the dawn of man, area rugs have been in existence. From animal hides salvaged for warmth under the feet in cold rock caves, to palm leaves, hay, and other vegetation being used in the forests as protection from the elements, there is no doubt that area rugs have a deeply rooted history that dates back to the beginning of evolution.

Every rug should be well made with color fast dyes and good yarns and straight seams regardless of whether it is hand made of silk or machine made of wool. For bedrooms, a good rule of thumb for size is to leave approximately 12" of floor space between the edge of the rug and the base molding.
