An exceptional “Vase” carpet in Berlin’s Schloss Museum is the basis for this exciting design. The original, a 16th century example attributed to Central Persia, presents a classic flower and vase pattern within multicolored, lozenge-shaped medallions. Comprised of cotton, linen and wool, the original is predominantly blue, faded green, red, carmine, yellow and white. While there is no apparent system in the coloring of the lozenges, the motifs are symmetrical and balanced. As in the original, this interpretation presents a richly pleasing multicolored medley. Its sparkling palette of ruby, ebony, golds and greens create warmth and beauty that will light up a room.
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.
