So many of our room designs begin with the rug as inspiration. The choices are endless and evoke different looks based on their color, pattern, and material. If the budget allows, we prefer to start with a hand knotted wool rug. A piece of this quality creates the foundation for the room and if well made, will be able to be passed on for generations.
We have a fierce love of vintage rugs. They add another dimension because they are typically one of a kind, and have a patina that can make a room feel authentic and global. We encourage you to embrace the slight tatters or discoloration of a vintage rug. Although many can be repaired, sometimes it’s precisely these imperfections that make a design really special.
Of course we love our local rug vendors here in Atlanta — they have an amazing selection, educate us on their products, and keep us coming back again and again. That being said, this Detroit-based company is kind of blowing us away as well!
Don’t let your rug be the last part of a room you consider. Start with a rug you adore and go from there! A really special one can pull a whole room together, spotlight a piece of furniture, and provide a welcome reprieve for little puppy feet.
