Kilims and oriental rugs are the epitome of eclecticism: bold and patterned yet somehow subtle and unobtrusive. Beautiful over marble and wood, or layered over carpeting or sisal rugs, oriental rugs are resistant to foot traffic and stains (and ephemeral trends).
If you prefer neutral rooms, an oriental rug can provide just the right amount of color and spark to prevent blandness. And because their patterns and colors are so detailed and layered, such rugs have a way of playing off colors everywhere else in the room.
You are yourself from head to foot. Shouldn't your home express who you are from floor to ceiling?
A reminder of primitive realities keeps the tentativeness of sophisticated new realities honest.
The evolution of modernity must take place as the branching of a tree. We cannot live by hurling ourselves into an abyss. We must live by growing organically from our roots.
The wonder and possibility of our time is that we are comfortable NOT in some cliche' of comfort, but in a place of new possibilities.
