Bucks County Oriental Rug Store Brandon Oriental Rugs - - Helps Homeowner in Doylestown, PA (Bucks County) Find Rug to Complete Newly Furnished Study

      Our customers recently completed renovation of a townhome in Doylestown. An expansive addition to the back of the house permitted new uses for the rooms in front. A small dining room in the original floorplan was converted into a study in the "new" home. Our customers had purchased several comfortable leather reading chairs from a local furniture store; had a nice collection of antique furnishings, and asked us to find a rug to make everything work. 
      After installing bookshelves, the remaining space in the room was small, and approximately square. A "shape" rug seemed appropriate, but a square would look forced and actually be too large to work. Using our Rug-Search(tm) service, we were able to locate several round and octagonal rugs for consideration.

      The homeowners loved the idea and look of an octagonal rug, and selected the one shown here. It does a nice job of making the small room look bigger, and allowed the customers to use many of their antique furnishings without clutter, or interruption of the walkway through the room.

Bucks County Oriental Rug Store Brandon Oriental Rugs - - Helps Customer In Newtown, PA Searching for a Handmade Area Rug for a Family Room Find "Love At First Sight"

     Our customer furnished this entire room (which functions as a small family room) herself. Her family had been living without a rug on the floor for about a year, when they visited Brandon Oriental Rugs, saw this rug in our inventory, and fell in love with it. 
     Not having seen the room ourselves, we offered to bring other choices as well, but were told, "No need to bring anything else. Without question, this is it." 
     When we made the delivery to install the rug for its in-home trial, all could instantly appreciate how successful the rug is in this room.      This is an 8x10 Indian Agra design rug. The light backgound and non-contrasting light border of the rug visually expand the room; the large scale pattern is non-competitive with the small floral patterning of the fabrics; the transitional styling of the rug is appropriate for the relaxed look and function of the room.
     We often point out to our customers that there is a kind of marriage between a handmade oriental rug and its environment. Sometimes, as here, it's love at first sight. Sometimes the perfect mate is only found after an extended search and trial of many possible choices.  
     Regardless of the path to commitment, the desired result is always to have that certainty about your choice expressed by our customer, "Without question, this is it."

Our customer in Jamison, PA used our Rug-Search (tm) service to find a new living room rug to complement their newly purchased sofa and window treatments. They selected a hand-knotted wool and silk oriental rug from us for its elegant but non-traditional look. Their room is small and offered them some challenges in its furnishing due to architectural asymmetries.
The 8x10 rug they chose, with light its background and asymmetrical floral patterning, expands the space, and does not introduce additional misaligned axes that would make the room look and feel busy.
