I love this rug from Asia Minor since they are dedicated to producing true artisan pieces that are 100% handmade with natural materials. This particular rug is a beautiful one-of-a-kind patchwork design created using vintage hemp rug pieces. This patchwork construction gives new life to those vintage rugs that may not be in great condition as a whole, and also creates very unique and interesting designs. This 10×13.8′ size will bring warmth to a large room with overall natural hues and fun details of blue and red pattern.
“I give this chair two thumbs in my mouth.
For me, it was the perfect addition to my library, under my framed master’s degree, next to my decanter of virgin white russians (just milk)
For those rainy days when I have to kick off my shoes and dive into my favorite leather-bound novella: “The Very Hungry Caterpillar”
The earth tones mix nature with the sleek modern lines that are a nod to my parent’s era (aka right now)
And not to mention the customizable upholstery, as I prefer a firm cushion for the chewability score.
As an interior designer, I confess that I choose comfort over style and I get both with this leather sofa. Boldly scaled for comfort with simple track arms and modern block feet, this sofa can blend into any setting. Navy, or teal, or purple, or…almost any accent color pairs perfectly with this handsome leather.
Cisco has a lot of beautiful pieces but the Lanister holds a special place in my heart… The slipcovered look is timeless to me and the comfort level is top-notch. It has a modern line but a classic shape that looks inviting and warm but clean and beautiful to the eye. Also, the fact that Cisco is artisan-made and environmentally sustainable is amazing! Definitely, a movie night-approved piece of furniture!
