Yes, one is always entitled to letting loose and cutting the rug occasionally, but for those times when it's being pondered only because half a rug is needed? Opt for a gloriously long runner instead.
While smaller spaces may do well with a simple-design carpet, galleys of palatial proportions are perhaps better suited to the sensational and intricate patterns present in Turkish and Caucasian rugs. When pairing a runner to tables and art, do also consider a Persian rug of Iranian descent—the largest rug in the world, after all, did originate there. Woven exclusively for the prayer hall of the Sheikh Zayed mosque in Abu Dhabi, it showcases more than one thousand stylized flowers. Now, that’s a garden too.
