There is no need to throw everything out in an interior design makeover if you can get existing possessions to coexist with new acquisitions. Afterall, waste is frowned upon in the "green" world that is blossoming around us.
Perhaps the best method for marrying an old style with your new is through the use of properly selected oriental rugs. The right rug can refocus and direct seemingly discordant room elements toward a shared, harmonious integrity energized by communion around the rug.
We maintain a board on Pinterest "Designing With Rugs" , dedicated to demonstrating the unassailable merits of using REAL handmade oriental rugs in ANY room, ANY design project, and for the purpose of bringing together ANY collection of collectibles.
Here are some recent revelations we think might allay misconceptions about just how versatile these enduring treasures are; and what a great fit they can be for your design and redecorating projects.

Chrome legs with an antique rug? Who would've thought? But the result looks great.
|Handmade rugs and art: non-judgmental cohabitation permitted for centuries.|
|Collections on display; and in the midst of the exuberance, |
a modest little oriental rug is quietly looking up at it all with admiration.
|Here is a formal, hand-knotted Persian rug -- floral, medallion, intricately detailed -- |
in what amounts to a casual (informal) room. We're beginning to think that maybe
it's impossible to go wrong with any REAL oriental rug regardless of your style.
|Which comes first. the love of color in every place which says "Hey, the floor is a |
place too", or the awareness of color and pattern in a handmade rug that says
"This seed must grow and spread its branches everywhere."?
|A fine hand-knotted Serapi-Heriz style rug, leather furnishings, books, |
artworks: a lot is getting mixed together in this room, but there is
NO confusion. Even in crowds, individuals keep their separate identities.
