Customers of Bucks County rug store, Brandon Oriental Rugs, recently completed a collection of fine handmade rugs for the first floor living areas of their home in the Lower Saucon Valley area of Bethlehem, PA. The images below show how, over the course of five years, they worked room to room, and added organically to the collection.
Our customers home office (shown above before the rug selection process began) is the last room in the home for which they had need of an oriental rug.
The first rug selected was for the family room seen above and in the foreground looking toward the office in the picture below. In a narrow, long room, a special rug size was required and Brandon helped solve the need with hand-knotted Indo-Persian rug. (The room is only eleven feet wide from the front of the hearth to the wall behind the sofa, so availability of a beautiful 8x16 oriental rug was a blessing. This rug is crucial too in that it established the palette throughout the remaining contiguous rooms.The newest addition to the home, the 5x7 Persian Kashan rug recently selected can be seen in the office.)
Next in the selection/collection process was the entry hall rug, a red/navy Persian Bidjar design made in India. This rug was also a lucky find regarding size. At 6x8 (instead of the standard 5x8 or 6x9) it centers on the front door entrance and fills the space between door and antique desk nicely.
The dining room rug, a sapphire blue backkground 10x13 Persian Kashan design handmade in Iran, is beautifully designed to direct the eye around the table in the room; and properly sized to allow all chairs to be atop the rug when guests are seated at the table.
While the first three rugs were chosen as finishing touches in their respective rooms, the living room rug was chosen as a first step in the redecorating of the room. Chosen as a beautiful complement to the dining room rug across the home's center entry hall, it has a multitude of colors to anchor the homeowner's art collection, and the additional furnishings that will be installed in the room.
The rug chosen for the living room is a 10x14 Persian Kerman made in Iran.
The last rug chosen (which completes the circle of rugs on the first floor of the Lower Saucon Township home) is a 5x7 Persian "Gul" Kashan made in Iran picked for the home office.
This piece was also selected early in the design process of the room to provide the needed link to complement the adjacent rugs.
It also provides the palette of colors for decisions about paint and fabrics for the room's completion.
Brandon Oriental Rugs is honored by the confidence our customers showed in us throughout the long process, the many steps and the years it took to complete their fine quality rug collection and the furnishing of their home. They could have looked elsewhere at any stage in the process, but always returned to us for their rugs. Hopefully that conveys a lot about the relative value of our services. Our customer's are justifiably proud of their acquisitions and accomplishments; and will enjoy their rug selections for many years into the future because of the quality choices they made at every step.
