Start With a Rug
Buy what you love.
"Starting a room with a rug helps you set the tone for a room and allows one to see how the room will evolve" says Orlando. "It can really help visualise the end result, so it is important to get that right near the beginning of the process."
"When you start with a rug, start with one that you like and are drawn to" notes Orlando. "Kilims are great if you are starting a collection or as a base. They provide a lot of colour but are easy to work up from. However, we have a great selection of Oushak, Konya and Heriz carpets in our store and showroom and will help clients find what works best for the space"
A Sharkoy Kilim, Circa 1860
A Mid 19th Century Caucasian Carpet, Circa 1840
"There are some great vegetable dye colours here and a lovely soft pile, as is very common in these Caucasian Rugs. This would be great in a hallway or as an entrance hall rug." - Orlando
18th Century Konya Carpet
"This carpet isn't very big, but packs a punch. It falls into a category of much appreciated yellow ground Konya rugs, that date back to the 17th/18th Century." - Orlando
An Antique Caucasian Dragon Design Rug, circa 1890.
"From the South East Caucus area, this would be particularly good for a drawing room or very smart entrance hall. It would be a great talking point and would fit in an old cosy room, but also somewhere more contemporary." - Orlando
"Beautiful example of a Sivas Kilim. It has a wonderful faded vegetable dyes and is very elegant." - Orlando
An Oushak 'Bird' Carpet
"Great carpet for a family room. The all over design means you can put furniture on it and it won't affect the overall impact." - Orlando
"This would be a good design for a sitting room, having furniture sitting centrally on it won't break up the design." - Orlando
All of these rugs and more are available to purchase through our Ebury Street showroom. Our showroom staff are very happy to speak to you about your requirements, to try and help you find the perfect rug.
