The original 19th Century Victorian needlepoint floral rug, approximately 8’x10’ with a crimson background and spread-winged eagles in the corners of the border, once graced the floor of the White House during the Kennedy presidency. This inspired interpretation by Nourison conveys the tone, vibe and ageless quality of the original but embellishes it as well. The colors are more vivid and the patterns are fuller with details. This rug definitely recreates the glory of Camelot!
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.
