Known for her colorful bohemian style, designer Justina Blakeney’s hand-woven Fable Collection from India is an imaginative spin on the regular flat weave rug. These pieces are crafted of wool and viscose with the ends of the weft coming to the front of the rug creating a shaggy texture, which defines the pattern as well as the nomadic spirt of the collection.
Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
