Parisian Style from the ground up with the perfect area rugs and accessories

Parisians are known for their consummate style and timeless elegance. To perfect this look, Parisians blend  unique pieces with iconic French design. 

Try mixing an abstract modern painting with a Bergere chair. The room above incorporates the use of stark silver metals with warn Carmel tones. This Mafi International rug collection, woven in timeless patterns, reminiscent of days ago, infuses history with modern design. Redefine opulence with this luxurious collection of stunningly elegant rugs. Hand woven of premium wool and bamboo silk fibers, they are velvety soft with a subtle yet luminous sheen. The rug designs feature transitional motifs with tasteful colors and tone-on-tone contrasts, and its silk adds opulence to create a luxurious vibe.  The chandelier by Arteriors has an Art Deco feel, yet the colors and shape give it a hip and fresh look. The Louis Vuitton luggage would make a perfectly French inspired side table! So when choosing rugs  and accessories for your home, do spend some time developing a design plan layered in the past with touches of modern art and furnishings. 

French style is all about incorporating the old with the new and showcasing unique pieces that complement one another and harmonize rather than creating a matched up-everything is dialed in plan. The French love flea market finds tossed next to a modern table. Parisian style comes together with the use of patterns, textures and textiles. Pops of color bring major impact like this Mafi International rug resplendent in regal purple. The silk adds a sheen and the modern design will ground the room, allowing the opportunity to feature a An Empire style table. The Arteriors accessories in sleek silver add a little wow factor and mesh well with the silk. The artwork is by a local artist and the image was taken at a French Flea Market! 

Whether you are starting your design with the neutral Mafi rug in warm silks, or using a splash of powerful purple, we have the Parisian look for your home.
