Magic Carpet Ride

Fun facts to know and tell- Karastan Carpets was founded in 1928 by Marshall Field, who sought to recreate beautiful, but expensive, hand-knotted Persian rugs for his stores. To this day, Karastan (still made in the United States) is one of the finest machine-made rugs or carpets you can buy.

Take this gorgeous traditional oriental rug; it would be the perfect base for almost any room. Couldn’t you see a pair of Barcelona chairs on it? Or how about a rolled arm chenille sofa? Chippendale dining chairs and table? Yep. In a master bedroom- platform bed or antique 4 post? We could go on and on.

We love this handmade rug by Ohio designer, Amy Butler. Wouldn't this brighten up your breakfast room or make your sun room just a little bit brighter? Help hide the dust bunnies in your daughter's room... these patterned rugs are up to the task.

A new rug is a great way to freshen up a room. Don’t be scared to place one on top of wall-to-wall carpet, especially if you have one of those oversized “great” rooms; it can help establish cozy seating areas. The Scouts have a large selection of rugs to order from. Stop by the studio, run your ideas by us, and we’ll help you select the perfect rug for your space.
