The interiors and decorative rugs in Oscar de la Renta’s many homes reflect the same classical elegance as his beautiful dresses cherished by women all over the world and favored by every American first lady from Jacqueline Kennedy to Michelle Obama. Vogue in their tribute to de la Renta, last week, noted that his elegant interiors seemed to be in a constant dialog with his runway fashions. de la Renta had a passion for patterns and colors and his urbane taste ranged from exotic Central Asian silk Ikat to intricate Elizabethan Palempore; from jewel-like Chinoiserie to stately Greek architectural motifs.

Not only are Savonnerie rugs held in high esteem by today's top interior designers such as Michael S. Smith, they have been favored by the biggest names in haute couture fashion such as Oscar de la Renta, Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy and Hubert Guerrand-Hermés of the House of Hermés.
