Festive Living 101: East x East Vintage Chinese Wool Rugs
I had to catch my breath when ABC Home updated their facebook with these wild vintage Chinese wool rugs from the ’20s and ’30s today. The pastel hues and gorgeous prints had me daydreaming about the luxe trans-global interior my home is destined to become. Imagine one of these in a room with a retro chandelier and some revived farmhouse furniture with sheepskin chair covers.
If you’re trying to add some punch to a room, as drab as it might be now, one vibrant area rug can literally change the atmosphere 360º, in as long as it takes to decide where to put the thing.
They range from $1,300 to $35,000 so no, I won’t be indulging in these just yet. But the inspiration has been planted, and I’ll be scouring flea markets for similar floor-candy this spring.
