Ravishing Rugs!

Tuesday, October 18, 2011 | Category: Floors

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good sisal, but lately I’ve been completely obsessed with statement-maker rugs at all price points. These rugs usually consist of a large pattern- a modern floral or geometric print.

I just had a geometric patterned rug custom-made for a client in a gray and beige color combo (not a combination you see very often), and I love how it turned out!

I’m thinking of using this orange Arabesque rug from Global Views for a male client’s bedroom…(and he went to OSU too- very fitting!)

This rug is actually about to come out in gray..all I can say is wowza! I’ll be lining up for that one too…

This Tracery rug designed by Kelly Wearstler for the Rug Company is it for me….I’d be happy with just this rug for the rest of my life-

You have to see it in the dramatic room setting to truly appreciate it-

Lauren and Sara at Decorative Carpets come out to Dallas every few months and update us on all their amazing new goodies…the quality of their rugs is amazing and I’m really loving their Minorca pattern

Although Merida is known mostly for their solid natural rugs, they also carry graphic patterned sisals by Barclay Butera. ¬†This classic stripe has texture, pattern and color, and wouldn’t be something that you would tire of quickly-

FLOR just opened up a retail showroom right near my house off Knox and so I got to see this out-of-this-world chevron pattern there a few weeks ago and all I have to say is that I need to use this pattern somewhere ASAP!

I have to admit, this new Talaa rug made of luxurious mohair from Restoration Hardware is pretty unbelievable.

Barbara Barry knows how to make that icy gray-blue color in just about every product you can imagine. Here it is again in her Moire nickel rug design for Tufenkian-

For only $199, you really can’t go wrong with this IKEA Stockholm rug

For a softer, more elegant look, I think an Oushak can be really pretty (especially in a bedroom or a more formal living room). I love this muted rug from William Sonoma Home

I’ve been waiting to use this Thomas O’Brien Ikat rug for what feels like forever!

The lime green color in this Anthropologie Coqo rug really gets me energized! This rug comes in as large as a 9×12.

And last but not least, this graphic rug from Horchow, inspired by a tile from the archives of the Smithsonian would look really dramatic with dark walls in a home office or library-
