Handmade Rugs Provide Beautiful Background For Spring 2012 Campaign

The Baluchi/Afghan rugs, beautiful in their own right, make the models and the fashions on display that much lovelier.
The tasteful campaign demonstrates that luxury is not found in objects or appearances alone; it is a milieu.

Designing with Rugs / A handmade area rug (reproduction Caucasian Shirvan design) lays claim to an otherwise undefined space and establishes an intimate sitting area.

Pinned Image
It's easy to see and appreciate from this picture how rugs literally have the power to make a room.
And it doesn't always take a big rug -- this one is only 5' X 4' -- to do the job. The handmade area rug (a reproduction Caucasian Shirvan design) lays claim to an otherwise undefined space and establishes an intimate sitting area.

Brandon Rugs finds witnesses in agreement: Houzz and Home 2013 Report Is Good News for Home Furnishings Industry

"In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established."

The following link attests to the same optimism concerning home improvement that was a conclusion of the Harvard research study cited in our most recent blog post: %26 Home 2013 Report.pdf

The truth of the shared conclusions is thus settled.

The long-awaited time for home improvement appears to be upon us according to research report from Harvard

Strong Signs for Home Improvement

Things are getting better, and if you have not yet accelerated the pace of your home improvement projects, the time for those thoughts is imminent according to this report from The Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard:
(The Joint Center for Housing Studies is a collaborative unit affiliated with the Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Harvard Kennedy School.)

And remember that fine quality handmade rugs are a great way to improve your home; an improvement that requires very little effort if you use Brandon Oriental Rugs to help you with your project.

Here's an example of the difference that rugs can make in a room. Our client has a large room with brick walls and floors and has been looking for a rug to bring more luxury to the area. With some rudimentary applications of PhotoShop to a picture of her room she provided to us, we were able to provide a virtual demonstration of the improvement that a fine rug will make in her room.

After (Virtual Room 1)

After (Virtual Room 2)

(We won't over-extend this post by showing all the other options presented -- and will post the finished room at a later time -- but this should provide an idea of how real rugs can really improve the look of your rooms.)

Designing with Rugs / Modern Carpet (Hand-knotted in Pakistan) anchors a visually stunning sitting room.

The understated simplicity of the rug (adapted from traditional Gabeh style) brings just a little more drama to an already impressive room. The designer/owner chose a berry red background with golden accents. The rug style is also available in a "reverse colorway" (gold with red) and numerous other patterns. Size 8x10 -- as shown -- costs about $2,600.

Brandon Oriental Rugs Presents Beautiful New Rug

A brief look at some lovely, new, non-traditional hand-knotted rug designs. 
It has taken some time for qualities to arrive with "new looks" we're excited about; and can offer our customers with the same assurances as traditional rugs. 
All of these pieces (and others we are anxiously awaiting) are hand-knotted, using premium grade materials, and show artistic control that places them in a category far above most of the contemporary rugs presently flooding the market. 
They can proudly grace the floors of your home or office with a timeless elegance that will not grow old for the many years that they will endure .

Bucks County Oriental Rug Store Brandon Oriental Rugs - - Helps Huntingdon Valley Homeowner Realize Picture Perfect Expression of Her Artistic Values

The room in this picture has been "in development" for some time, as our customer has introduced new elements to make it complete. It was not built on shifting sands, but stands solid and whole, integrated by the values it expresses.

Consider all of the choices made -- paint color, fabrics and textures, accessories, furniture pieces and placement -- with multitudes of divergent paths along the way which ultimately must meet at the confluence of a final "picture" which is (hopefully) picture perfect.
This can't be achieved listening to the discordant crowd noise of fads, trends, fashion "must haves". This happens to the beat of a different drummer.
The rug you see looks great. But our customer is still uncertain. She knows what her ideal looks like. This could be it, but there are still some unanswered questions.
Brandon Oriental Rugs reveres the truth wherever it is found. When the rug we have on the floor has removed all doubts in our customer's mind as to its appropriateness; when the foreground of the room is filled by the rug in exactly the way our customer wants her picture to look, we have fulfilled our duty as a resource.
When the goals are noble and lofty, we are honored to participate.

Bucks County Oriental Rug Store Brandon Oriental Rugs - - Helps Huntingdon Valley New Homeowner Select Living and Dining Room Rugs

One of the designers affiliated with Brandon Oriental Rugs through our associated Loom and Essence network used fine hand-knotted rugs in the living room, entry hall, and dining room of her client's newly renovated new home to establish the color theme and visual continuity of the conjoined areas.

On the day we installed the rugs, the new living room furniture was still a month from completion and delivery, but the new dining room was ready for entertaining.

These rugs were purchased several months in advance of the move-in date. At that time the idea of what the completed project would look like was pretty much in the mind of the designer.

The client was richly rewarded for the faith placed in the designer with nicely integrated rooms established upon the rugs that began the process.

Bucks County Oriental Rugs Store Brandon Oriental Rugs - - Provides Perfect Finishing Touch to a Newly Decorated Living Room Using Old, New and Refurbished Furnishings and Accessories in Warminster, PA

     The fine hand-knotted oriental rug in the picture below was the coup de maitre (and sine qua non) to the newly redecorated living room of our talented customer. She had, over many months, painstakingly selected and collected (and in some cases repaired or refinished) every element of new and old decor in the room.
          Upon bringing it all together, she saw the need for a rug to anchor and integrate all of the other elements. She invited us into her home to see what she had accomplished, and asked us to help her find a rug that could appropriately finish what she had so skillfully brought to the finish line.
     With the good fortune that helps every great rug find its true home, we knew of this rug, were able to acquire it for our customer's approval, and helped her to complete her picture perfect room.

Symphonies In The Round: New Inventory Selections at Brandon Oriental Rugs (Bucks County, PA)

Check back for our soon to be posted essay: "Oriental Rugs Are Exemplary Demonstrations of the Principles of Information Science" (which will also include a video presentation.)

Briefly, organized complexity is more interesting and appealing to us than simplicity (provided randomness is avoided). A symphony is more appealing and interesting than a commercial jingle. We'd rather have a seat watching Mother Nature's majesty than one viewing the four corners of a white room. The Mona Lisa's smile will hold us enthralled much longer than a "smiley face" logo. And a REAL hand-knotted oriental rug has a lot more to say to us than wall-to-wall carpet, or cheaply made imitations.

With that as preamble, we present the following "Symphonies in the Round".

Symphony #1

Symphony #2
Symphony #3

Symphony #4

Symphony #5

Symphony #6

Symphony #7

Symphony #8

Symphony #9: This piece is SOLD. Selected by our customer for use at the
doorway leading to the pool in their backyard.

New Hand-knotted Oriental Rug for Redecorated Dining Room in New Home in the Lehigh Valley

Our client recently purchased their home and selected the dining room rug as a finishing touch in their newly furnished/ redecorated dining room. Our primary challenge was finding a rug properly coordinated with the new colors and proportioned to work with a long solid-top table placed off-center in the nominally square room.
