Art Underfoot

Focus on an overlooked element of décor by putting artful carpet and rugs beneath your feet.


In the home design arena, “What’s under our feet?” is a question of prime importance. After all, we want it to be durable, comfortable and, equally important, beautiful. You can narrow down the choices by deciding whether you will do neutral carpet – either wall-to-wall or bound – or patterned, color-filled rugs. While barely scratching the surface of choices out there, here are a few that represent both sides of the issue. The winner? That’s up to you to decide!
