We may walk all over them, but the enduring appeal of fine floor coverings goes far beyond simply "tying the room together," and handmade rugs have long been objects of desire. In this unique and beautifully illustrated book, design consultant Alix Perrachon and Manhattan gallery owner Doris Leslie Blau explore all aspects of placing handmade carpets in contemporary spaces. More than 30 designers—including Penny Drue Baird, Samuel Botero, Clodagh, Jamie Drake, David Easton, Thomas Jayne, Juan Montoya, Suzanne Tucker, Bunny Williams, and Vicente Wolf—discuss in lively terms how they select from the endless array of decorative carpets available.
"Training its spotlight on the indispensable but often intimidating world of furnishings underfoot, this volume features rooms imbued with floor flourish by a who's who of design superstars.... Carpeting connoisseur Doris Leslie Blau lays the groundwork in a fine foreword."—Veranda
