Hand-knotted in Pakistan of 100% New Zealand wool, the Essex Collection celebrates the art of rug making in its finest form. Essex's designs are inspired by detailed arabesque patterns that carry a rich, long-standing heritage but with a transitional twist. Borders have been removed and the designs are less ornate than most traditional designs, creating a look that's appropriate for upscale traditional and transitional room settings. What's more, each batch of wool yarn is artfully hand-dyed, ensuring richly saturated colors that come to life in this luxurious 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.
