Custom Blinds & Design
Rugs are a “feel good” home furnishing in so many ways. The right rug adds warmth, interest, and definition to a room.
Think playful or sophisticated, modern or traditional. Your choices in rug materials and patterns are almost limitless. Consider:
– Solid colors
– Abstract patterns
– Faux animal prints
– Ethnic looks
– Historic oriental rug designs
– Traditional wool or silk
– Practical cotton or blends
– Avant garde cow skin or leather woven into silk
– Shaggy synthetic fibers
More than almost any other furnishing, rugs come in a huge range of price points – from several hundred dollars for a machine-made new rug to thousands of dollars for a hand-crafted antique heirloom – the choice is yours.
Rugs also come in many sizes and shapes. It’s best to consult an expert about the dimension that will work best in your rooms. And always ask for advice about adding the right liner for safety, so the rug doesn’t slip and slide.
Add sumptuousness and depth to your rooms with a beautiful area rug. Then kick off your shoes, take off your socks and enjoy.
