The most logical way to decorate a room is to start with the oriental rug. By extracting a single color from the carpet, one can influence the room setting's entire color and design scheme including that of upholstery, wall coverings, and window treatments. Similarly, a rug's pattern can inspire the particular furniture style to be used.
For example, a carpet exhibiting the French floral Aubusson pattern could be the first step in establishing a formal French mood and ambiance.

These classic Persian and Chinese-design oriental rugs unite the living and dining areas of this home.



The floor covering used in this traditional dining room is a Turkish Kilim.

However, incorporating the modem oriental rug into an existing decor is now virtually problem-free thanks to the infinite variety available. A particular decorative scheme can inspire the use of a specific rug type and style. For instance, an 18th century English decor could be the ideal setting for an English-patterned needlepoint rug as well as for a traditional Turkish carpet. On the other hand, in a less formal decorating environment a dhurrie or kilim might be the perfect candidate.

This living room makes an elegant statement about style. The oriental rug is a contemporary adaptation of a Serapi rug.
