Rustic Cabin Rug

rustic cabin rugWe recently had a client who came to us looking for a rustic cabin rug.  Tribal oriental rugs typically look great in rustic settings and we jumped at the chance to see this customer’s home for ourselves!

This beautiful home was located in Paris, Kentucky and nestled next to a creek with a beautiful view of the water and open fields nearby.  As if the view wasn’t enough to make us jealous, this customer also had a wonderful collection of antique furniture and art that accentuated the look and feel of the cabin.

We wanted the rug to be large enough to provide ample coverage for a living room space with a full size sofa and chairs.  We also needed something that would work with a very large stone fireplace.  To keep with the rustic cabin feel, we decided to go with a tribal pattern with rusts, browns, blues, greens, and golds.

The customer gravitated towards the softness and durability of Indian rugs, so we worked to find an antique reproduction that would look the part of a centuries old tribal rug, but would have the softness underfoot of a new production rug.  This piece did just the trick.  With hand-spun wool and vegetable dyes, it looked old without the added wear and tear or added cost.

We love how this project turned out and applaud the work done by the interior designers involved.  Are you ready to create something beautiful?  We can help!  See all of our oriental rugs in our showroom or online at www.lexingtonorientalrugs.com
