Area rugs can be a wonderful addition to your home, creating a dramatic focal point, augmenting the room’s style and color scheme, and helping to define the space within a room.Now is the perfect time to enhance your home with area rugs. More than just a good-looking accessory, they have great practical value as well, blocking winter’s chill from hardwood, tile, and stone floors and providing comfortable spaces for lounging barefoot, sitting, and playing. They also reduce noise and echo, making your interior space more intimate and inviting—ideal for a season of indoor activity and entertaining.For elegant patterns, rich color schemes, and fine machining, consider a Biltmore For Your Home area rug by Capel, inspired by George Vanderbilt’s vast collection of antique rugs, many of which currently grace the floors of Biltmore House.
I recently visited the Biltmore Mansion and was very intrigued by the rug collection, since I owned and managed a rug store for over 30 years. Since returning home, I have tried to research these beautiful rugs, but have found nothing that actually reviews the rugs in the house. Can you direct me to such an article? I would greatly appreciate your help.
