I have selected some of the most beautiful patterned fabrics from Chanel, Armani and Elie Saab at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2012 and paired them with decorator rugs from Asmara. Women’s fashion’s change every season but a good quality decorator rug lasts a lifetime. As the designer for Asmara, I live in the question “What kinds of decorator rugs will always look fashionable”?
