Oushak rugs are amazingly flexible because of their ability to work in both both modern and traditional settings and because their soft color palettes often contain many accent colors that allow you to create different color palettes in the room. Let us look at some fabulous interiors with Oushak rugs.
A hand made wool needlepoint rug has a flat texture resembling an antique rug in which the pile has worn down. Decorators prefer needlepoint rugs to new oriental rugs when they are decorating with antique furniture. But people unfamiliar with needlepoints can mistakenly assume they are fragile. This is untrue as proved by the experience of thousands of customers and interior designers who have used them in their own homes and say they are very durable and easy to clean. Room images at the end of this post show how decorators add glamour to living rooms, dining rooms, libraries, bedrooms and bathrooms with needlepoint rugs.

In the 17th century French artists and weavers invented the art of weaving rugs with depth perspective. This technique is so artistically demanding it has never been copied by the rug weavers of the east and even today only European rugs such as Aubusson, Savonnerie and Needlepoints have three dimensional patterns.

Aubusson rugs ancient patterns have a timeless appeal. It might surprise you to learn that these rugs are as much at home in a rustic country interior as in a glamorous English country house, a French château or an Italian villa. Aubusson rugs were originally created in the 18th century for the French nobility. The patterns of these rugs are a combination of architectural notifs from classical Greece and Rome and French floral motifs. Aubusson rugs have a flat-woven texture which gives them a clean, almost contemporary look. The seven chic rooms in today's post illustrate several different ways of decorating with Aubusson rugs.
Nelson Barnum Interiors,
AD100 interior designer Timothy Corrigan bought a neoclassical Loire Valley château from the French government in 2005 and after years of painstaking effort has transformed it into a home that is not only stylishly aristocratic but also surprisingly warm and livable. “It would have been very easy to design the room in true 18th-century style, with little spindly gold chairs and not a lot of places to sit,” Corrigan told Architectural Digest. Instead Corrigan used oriental rugs and comfortable furniture to create intimate spaces throughout the château. Corrigans rooms show us how to create warm and livable environments in any size home regardless of its style or setting.

Architectural Digest has a dominant share of the 15 best rooms with decorative rugs in May 2014. Another remarkable thing is how many of the rooms are over sized and how many feature custom silk rugs. These interiors may be telling us something about the divergence between the upper end and the rest of the market.
