building blocks of a room | area rugs

Rugs are a key building block when I design a room's decor. The design, texture, and colors in a rug provide a great jumping off point when coming up with the color palette, and later, selecting fabrics and furniture.

Stark is well-known for their amazing historical reproductions as well as more modern designs -- their rugs can be seen in the White House, the Smithsonian, Gracie Mansion (even though Mayor Mike doesn't really live there, but I bet he has Stark carpets or rugs somewhere in his Upper East Side townhouse), luxury hotels, and many of the gorgeous homes you see pictured in your favorite shelter mags.

And it's just your luck that the lovely ladies of at One Kings Lane have a wide selection of Stark Rugs for sale -- go check out the site and let your imagination go wild with the possibilities!
