Architectural Digest 6 Best Rooms with Designer Rugs in August 2017

The six best rooms with designer rugs in the August 2017 Architectural Digest are all in an 18th-century Paris apartment just renovated by Pierre Sauvage with the help of designer Franz Potisek. The style is a colorful mix of traditional, contemporary and Boho-Chic sensibilities and proves that traditional 18th-century architecture and contemporary styling are a great combination. The apartment has a grand classical structure with tall windows and original paneling that took a year of painstaking restoration. Painted in brilliant colors and paired with boldly patterned designer rugs reminiscent of 1970’s David Hicks, the result is both elegant and daring.

1. Blue, White and Red

In the Franz Potisek designed dining room a blue and white rug complements the original 18th-century boiserie painted blue. White and gold Louis XVI chairs contrast with the reddish wood tones of a 19th-century English Mahogany table. A red floral arrangement adds pop.

2. White, Brown and Red

The sitting room’s Louis XVI oak-and-mirror-paneled walls create a striking contrast with the white cut and loop geometric rug, white Jansen sofas and a Hervé Van der Straeten bronze-and-rock crystal chandelier. Red velvet cushions add pop.
