“We help our customers understand how the rugs are knotted, how they’re made,” he says. “We want them to see that a well-made piece is something that will last a lifetime, not wear in a few years.” In terms of how the rug can work with your design scheme, Abraham says, “Decide where the main element—sofa, bed, desk—of the space will be, then note the traffic patterns of the space, and determine if the rug should be part of that.”
