Persian Oriental Rug Completes Family Room Addition to Town Home Renovation in Doylestown, PA (PHOTOS)

Our customers, who own a home in the center of Doylestown selected a Persian Kashan design rug from Brandon Oriental Rugs (www.BrandonRugs.com) to complete the family room they added to their home as part of a whole house renovation project.


The room before introducing the rug is seen above. (The table was custom made by our customer from the cross-section of a trunk of an old oak tree from his property.)


As part of the renovation, the homeowners installed a small gas fireplace in the far corner of the area added to the back of their home. This feature placed some constraints on the optimal size of the area rug they were able to select. (The hearth and firebox surround are finished with custom designed Peace Valley tiles.)


When our customers visited our store they instantly recognized the rug they were were seeking (and needed) for their room. The palette of colors in the hand-knotted Persian Kashan looks as if it was custom ordered for the pale green walls and denim blue sofa. Also, because it is a Persian rug, its dimensons (based on metric rather than English standard of measurement) are slightly elongated. This rug is 8'3" x 11'6" and works perfectly in the space. The common 8x10, 8x11 or 9x12 sizes would not have offerered the same tailored-fit look.

Home Renovation in Princeton, NJ Completed with New Oriental Rug (PHOTOS)

Renovation of a Princeton, NJ home was completed recently with help from Brandon Oriental Rugs (www.BrandonRugs.com) in Bucks County, PA.

The Princeton homeowners added an extension to their existing home in town, giving them a new, conjoined family room, kitchen, dining area, mudroom and wine cellar for gatherings of family and friends, and for business entertaining. Their plans involved incorporating a mix of new and old furnishings (including a new family room rug) to fill the expanded living areas. The marriage of modern with traditional yields an updated elegant, comfortable, functional and uncluttered look and feel.








The rug selected from Brandon is an exceptional, antique reproduction Persian Kashan design rug made in India according to "Super Amritsar" contract guidelines. Using weight per square foot as a guideline, the rug has no equal in the world. As well, the variegation of colortones in the densely knotted thick pile carpet gives it an almost wondrous ability to coordinate with the many different colors that already exist in the room.

We congratulate our customers for a brilliant rug selection to complement the well-considered new addition to their lovely home.

Some marriages are just destined to work and endure. 
There are are rugs that are naturally at home in rooms that have a certain character and use particular furniture styles. The unions look like matches made in heaven.
