The Right-Sized Rug
with Brian Paquette
For award-winning interior designer Brian Paquette, the success of a rug in a room is about choosing the “right-sized” rug. And that means customization down to the inch. Watch the film to hear more about Paquette's design approach.
Define the “right size”
“You want all of the furniture on the rug, so when you're experiencing the rug, with your shoes on or off, it's immediately comfortable.”
Consider a quieter aesthetic
Brian recommends deciding on the rug's impact: whether it should be the star of the show or play more of a supporting role.
Always see a sample
“It's the nuances ... of texture and quality and thickness. Seeing samples in person is simply paramount to the design process.”
