Here are my picks for the top 5 interiors with designer rugs in the April 2016 Architectural Digest.
A circa-1840 red Tabriz oriental rug sets a vibrant tone in AD100 designer Timothy Corrigan’s Paris dining room. The red from the rug is carried through to the drapes and to the backs of the Louis XVI–style dining chairs. Gold and black accents in the dining table, chairs, mirror and wall trim balance the the reds.
Timothy Corrigan designed his Paris living room’s white and gold designer rug as well as the sofa and chairs. Red accents are distributed across the room to create a visual link with the red dining room.
A blue rug in a flat weave texture creates a crisply tailored setting for a David Hicks sofa upholstered in blue tweed and a gold 1930’s Jansen gueridon in AD100 designer Lorenzo Castillo’s northern Spain getaway.
In Castillo’s living room a beige flat weave rug anchors green and gray suede upholstered sofas and green and white wallcovering which was designed by Castillo for Gastón y Daniela.
The other end of Castillo’s drawing room has antique engravings and maps mounted above a sectional sofa upholstered in a blue windowpane-check. Note how different the color of the flat weave looks compared to the picture of the other end of the room.
A flat weave rug made of hand-spun hemp anchors two white slip-covered sofas and aqua and blue pillows in designer Tom Scheerer’s Bahamas vacation home.
