    Just to add to the previous poster, this piece is Pakistani. The motif represents an elephant foot print. This Bhokara design is quite popular and it is said, "you can't go into a home in Europe without finding a Bhokara."

    Hello babsrug,

    This particular carpet is known more specifically as a Mauri Bokhara, It is usually made of a 100% hand-spun wool in Pakistan. The design is Turkoman and during the Mughal period in Asia the rows of repeating patterns were said to represent that of their elephants foot. Other scholars say it represents the gems located on the palace walls at the time. We carry identical pieces in different sizes as shown below.

    It's from Fine Art Lamps. Several years ago though, so I'm not sure if they still make it.

    Here are some from Hancock and Moore (can also do in fabric) and Councill.

    Yes, this could work on a 9' ceiling, but only just. It's about 20" high. For a 9' ceiling it would be best to use it over a dining table so that you don't need enough space to walk under it.

      This chocolate velvet chesterfield doesn’t stray too far from neutral and mixes beautifully with the persimmon walls and carpet in this richly hued study. Why it works: All the surfaces in the room have a similar visual weight, and the luster of the brown velvet perfectly matches the golden tones of many of the accessories.

      7. Tomato red looks elegant in traditional interiors. Walls awash in tomato-red paint make a sitting room feel cozy and luxurious. Pair the rich walls with equally saturated chocolate brown, gold and black.Paint: Moroccan Red, Benjamin Moore

      Chocolate, black and gold. Try a plush chocolate-colored sofa, lamps with black parchment shades, and picture frames and mirrors in either black or gold (or a mix). On the floor you could go with either a traditional rug in red tones (as seen here) or keep it simple with a natural-fiber rug.Tell us: Do you have red walls? How do you decorate around them?

      In aromatherapy nutmeg is used for rejuvenating, energizing and uplifting, although we often associate it with the comforting, festive smell of Christmas. This room demonstrates beautifully how well red and brown work together — it's definitely a pairing that's not just for Christmas.
