An antique reproduction Hadji-Jalili design hand-knotted oriental rug was selected from Brandon Oriental Rugs (www.BrandonRugs.com) by DK Interior Concepts of Yardley, PA for the traditional living room of their clients Newtown, PA home.
A selection of hand-knotted oriental rugs (in runner sizes) surrounds the island of this kitchen in a Newtown, PA home. DK Interior Concepts of Yardley, PA invited us to assist in the project to find a coordinated set of rugs that would be practical, durable, and functional in a heavily used area of the home. Size considerations were paramount to provide proper coverage of the floor without obstructing or intruding upon furnishings and adjacent areas.
DK Interior Concepts in Yardley, PA invited us to assist them with finding a traditional, but unique, oriental rug to complete the step-down living room of their client's Newtown, PA home. The selection, a beautiful hand-knotted 12x12 square antique reproduction Persian Sultanabad design rug, does a great job of supporting the designer's detailed plan for furnishing and accessorizing the room without overwhelming any part of it. You can feel how good this room is.
Our friends at DK Interior Concepts in Yardley, PA created this impressive and functional entry-hall vignette for their client in Newtown, PA. Reproduction Persian Bidjar design rug made in India is an excellent choice for looks and durability in a high traffic area of this family's home.
Rug is properly sized for function in this beautifully detailed dining room.
Hand-knotted Sino-Persian rug with silk accents is a lovely and non-competitive anchor for this dressy room.
The area rug appears to be what is commonly marketed as a "Peshawar" or "Pak-Agra" rug. It is made in Pakistan with hand-spun yarns, vegetal dyes and the muted limited palette; available in different (but similar) designs and various background/border color combinations (this rug is natural ivory/light blue). Most rug stores have examples of this rug type and access to selections with the best color combinations to suit your decor.
A very interesting handmade rug in the seating area. It has a traditional style oriental rug border, but the background design is modern in concept. Usually eclecticism needs the entire room to manifest, but here you see the whimsy in a single object.
The hand-knotted oriental rug is like a grayscale image of a traditionally colored oriental rug; and that was the genius behind its realization by the rug importer/manufacturer. Many companies are bringing the concept to market now in various designs. Just keep in mind that, for all its perfection in this room, real oriental rugs can be around for a lifetime. A rug with a more varied palette could also succeed in the room, but be more versatile and interesting for future room makeovers.
Hand-knotted Ikat rug nicely coordinated with furniture and accessories. Notice that pattern with pattern is eye-catching, NOT clashing. It would take a design treatise to explain why this is successful; but the short answer is that you see and feel that everything works.
Reproduction Mamluk design rug made in Pakistan and beautifully detaied is a great complement to this room. The spice tones radiate warmth that marries with the brick walls and hearth and carries our eye to the coordinated Pak-Bokhara rug at the front door. The blues in the rug strike a balance to add a little extra "cool" to the mix.
Tableau Rug(Pictorial Carpet) - Decorative French Design
Magnificent antique hand-knotted oriental rug
Sorry this looks like a prison. What could be done better? Lose the ottoman. Put a nice oriental rug on the floor to break up the claustrophobic visual of the space as it now exists.
Handmade oriental rug (this one is a kilim) on top of carpet? No problem. And so much more in keeping with the spirit of the space than the carpet itself.
Wow! for the drama that the Persian Kerman design rug brings to this colorful room.
Very muted Pakistan Peshawar rug is a beautiful foundation for this room and does not keep you from appreciating the volume of the space.
French Savonnerie rug (hand-knotted in China) breaks up the monotony of the wall-to-wall carpet and is in keeping with the luxury and elegance of the design.
The handmade "Patchwork" rug makes this wide open room a little cozier, yet succeeds in advancing the modern groove. These rugs are available to us from a number of different importers in various colors; and each rug is unique because of the way they are made. Questions? Write to us @firstname.lastname@example.org
Persian Heriz rug
A lovely Persian Heriz design rug (possibly a well-made Indian made reprodction) is splendid in this room. The spice-red field is an excellent complement to the golden tones in the room. My compliments to the designer who devised a nice solution to the problem of furniture arrangement posed by the angled wall with fireplace. Bravo too for realizing that the table does not have to be atop, or even aligned with, the medallion of the rug. This is a special room, and the abundance of luxurious accessories make it so. It validates Coco Chanel's adage that, "Luxury is a necessity that begins where necessity ends."
Another home office anchored by the rug. This is a Pak-Jaldar (a lower knot version of the so-called Mori-Bokhara produced in Pakistan in large quantities in the 1980's and -90's). The rug does a splendid job of picking up the colors of the furnishings and accessories in the room, to give a sense of overall integrity to the room.
Nice panel design rug (an Indian reproduction of a Persian Bactiary "Chahar Mahal" design with a much toned-down palette) anchors this bright office and holds it together visually. Appreciate too that the one way (asymmetrical) design is not in any way upsetting to the sense of balance in the room. Nice job all around.
Wish the rug were 9x12 instead of 8x10 so that the end chairs stay on the rug when they are pulled out to sit down.
The great collection of antique Persian rugs is a great touch in a great room.
The rug succeeds in making this a multi-use room with distinct areas of function, whereas it might appear otherwise to be a jumble of furniture.
Just as a delicious meal satisfies the palate with a complexity of flavors that complement one another, so does this room declare its tastefulness with a combination of elements based around the rug that use the palette with skill.
the rug does a great job of anchoring the room; giving focus to and holding together a mutlitude of elements that otherwise would drift apart visually.
the rug does a beautiful job of elongating the room with lines of perspective that converge on the abstract painting at the end of the room above the table.
use of non-traditional (contemporary) rug with traditional (farmhouse style) table and chairs. Excellent color coordination (and separation) to give impact and structure to a condensed space.
lovely use of fine handmade rug to visually fill a large center hall of home.
proper arrangement of furniture around rug
Take away the rug and a whole room becomes a room with a hole.
