Custom area rugs have been top of mind this week as I complete a design project in Minneapolis. The challenge in this particular home was how to unify a long, narrow living room which is 12.5’W x 34’L. Using several smaller complimentary area rugs would chop up the space so I advised my client to consider a custom area rug made to measure. We love the look of natural sisal but not the hard finish. My client also has small children and a dog and I knew natural sisal could stain easily. I proposed several carpet selections which offered a high-low sculptural texture which she loved. We chose the diamond pattern because it will add interest without detracting from the new home furnishings and antique chairs that we are restoring. Here’s a sneak peek of the stunning fabric selections:
