Rugs, by Jeffrey Weiss (1979)


“No other decorative touch can match the dramatic accent of a rug on a floor or wall; a rug that seems to be made for the space, whether it be a brilliant Persian, a fiery new Berber carpet from Morocco, a simple Shaker runner, or an exotic Chinese weave. Rugs is a panoramic visual report on how people of taste and style add an exuberant dimension to their homes with the addition of fabulous rugs.”

So opens Jeffrey Weiss’s 1979 opus to the humble, everyday floor covering: the rug. With 162 full color photos of rugs doing what they do best – tying the room together – readers are also treated to a myriad of 1970’s rooms that will inspire even the most seasoned of interior designers.
