Interior decor is fashionDoes /fa/ like nice rugs?
>>17618854interior design isn't fashion, rugs are cool as fuck both asthetically and also because they are warm, only downside is that they are disgusting
>>17618854>>17618860aesthetic as fuck and visually sublime addition to decor
>>17618866If interior decor is not fashion, what board does it belong on?
>>17618866You're supposed to clean your house, including the rugs, then it won't be disgusting.
>>17618854rugs are absolutely fa, symmetry depicts life itself, and the beauty of soft and rugged material that fades with time. hard to find honest rug sellers tho, and they shill you for 2-3k.
>>17618901Oh man, beware the Turkish salesman. They are masters at impressing unknowing buyers and selling them an old worn out rug for way too much money. But there are rugs that are genuinely worth five or six figures in USD.
Materials should be silk and/or wool pile. The fringe should be cotton or silk. All silk rugs are the most expensive, but they are also not intended for heavy foot traffic. Put them where you can enjoy them with bare feet or use them as a wall hanging.
Sweet, I have a nice large rug from Moldova in my bedroom and several Turkish and Indian rugs in my living room.
>>17618943Nice! I really love high quality rugs.
>>17618912>But there are rugs that are genuinely worth five or six figures in USD.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9BaBHEYgmw
I went to morocco twice and bought rugs, and got a few second hand locally. What I've realized is that I get sick of them. At least with a proper berber rug if you haul it home you will get a nice price for it, but otherwise I think youre pretty misguided if you have an expensive rug high on the list of things to buy for the home
>>17618881We really need our own broad :(
>>17619409I wish there was interior board too. Could be called /arc/ and include architecture, landscaping and interior design in general
>>17619409>>17619592And nobody would post there, this board is already so goddamn slow
>>17619592How do we make it happen? Who do I need to email? My only concern is too many users on here are neetfags or teenagers still living at home.MODS! JANNIES! make it fucking happen you good for nothing cunts
>>17620165>too many users on here are neetfags or teenagers still living at homemain problem general
>>17620218doesn't even matter. you can design and have pride in your living space.
>>17620165I second a board called /arc/ or /des/
some rugs are so beautiful they may make you crylike this one which depicts an old persian story about a man who protects his widow as a ghostlove is eternal
>>17621539The story goes:A persian prince is exiled to live in the woods by a magic creature who has plagued his family for centuries. The prince has a magic book which tells his own future! It is like breaking the fourth wall, as he's reading the same book as we are.. He's not above skipping ahead a few chapters to find out what hsi future holds. He reads he is destined to follow the silk road to Korea and marry a Korean princess. He can even read about his own death and prepare for what happens afterward!It's truly an epic tale. He can read the future and prepares for the world, protecting the one he loves even in his own afterlife.
>>17621554It's also notable this story was written more than a thousand years before the first European explorer reached Korea and completely rewrites history. Rugs are somewhat priceless in the same way.
>>17621678Weird flex but okay
>>17619592i've wanted this for years>>17619691these threads always do well. if it ever slows down it's probably because the thread doesn't have a true board to call home.>>17621518third.
>>17622772This thread would be gone if I hadn't bumped it from page 10 a couple days ago
I own probably 11 handmade rugs. 9 of them Persian. I thought I was alone. Any other rug heads on the hunt for anything? I still want a pure silk one
>>17622772just make a /arc/ general thread on /fa/ and invite people to itI don't think janny would delete it
>>17619409>>17619592>>17620165Hiro creating a non vidya/shitpost board? Never ever
>>17623089i would love to get a greek rug.
>>17623089>135 watt amp in your bedroomsoul
>>17623089Nice mahi, I've got all silk Persian about that size.
>>17623702its technically not a mahi because its not a herati design but the repetition does make it seem that way. Its a silk and wool Qom. No pic?
>>17623408dont think ive ever seen one. guessing it has turkish design elements
>>17623416i should put in the garage but my neighbors would hate me playin out there haha
>>17621539beautiful Tabriz>>17618894full rug pic? Interesting Isfahan design>>17623082my first handmade rug was a Kazak. I got ripped off but oh well. Learned my lesson
>>17619592>>17619691>>17620165>>17621518>>17622772>>17623094>>17623141I'd absolutely love the idea but I wouldn't bet on it.Music making and audio are far more popular topics with several active generals on /mu/ and /g/, and despite us asking for it many times with a long list of reasons*, it's still not there.But in all fairness, maybe they think /mu/ is already the right place, while architecture and design doesn't really have an appropriate board, so you might actually have a chance there.This is of course assuming that Hiro and whoever manages 4chan actually wants the list of boards to reflect user interest, and it's not just what Good Smile, the company that financed part of Hiro's purchase, wants to shill its products on, like the (seemingly true) conspiracy theory says.* The full text of why it's needed:https://pastebin.com/ZHXhfRZw
>>17623793>I'd absolutely love the ideaWhat the fuck am I sayingI absolutely love the idea*
How does /fa/ think of my bedroom?
>>17618854i have a penchant for mohair myself>>17623081this is photoshopped, and badly at that >>17623896looks great bud
>>17623916paul smith has designed some pretty incredible rugs as well but always wondered how one would style them
>>17623755Ah, I see it now. My silk one stays wrapped up to preserve it. I only pull it out for special occasions.
I've only seen two of these in my life
>>17624463Hang it on the wall. Spend a little extra money to get loops woven into it to hang. Get to appreciate it all the time then.
>>17625729lol poorfag muslim
>>17625789Nobody wants your boring bland rugs here. The colorful one barely passes but we are /fa/ggots with taste in this thread.
>>17623793What is that conspiracy theory?
I live in an apartment just like this but with brown carpeting and cannot make alterations. How the FUCK do I decorate/furnish this hovel? Is eclectic or scandinavian my only choice? I fucking hate the "IKEA but from Walmart" lookI honestly have no idea what to do but my rent is low af
>>17627222I know nothing about interior design but I'm guessing that since the inside is small and drab I want loud patterned bedding and curtains cordinated with one another at that the curtains or bed frame will be what instantly draws attention? Is this correct? I want the space to be a place to decompress from work while promoting productivity at home and representing my 4chan/Reddit tier interests. One unique element is that I intended to buy military and medical surplus furniture for storage/desk and hang a tv off the wall from a mount. I'd like a darker, edgier and surreal vibe as well. Do you think I could get away with fusing mid century modern aesthetics with cold war visuals and subtle elements of american psychedelica while also paying tribute to my more nerdy interests or is that just too contrasting and busy to work?I REALLY don't want a Scandinavian Prison cell but it feels like that's what I am being boxed into which is understandable because I live in a fucking box but I can't give it up since I live in a coastal city yet have a midwestern cost of living in a place that isn't overrun by meth zombies
>>17618854Any site/store recs for rugs and interior shit? Or even charts? I just moved into a new place need practical ideas.
>>17627232If you are in High Point NC check out Zaki's. That place is mind blowing. He's got a website, but it is not the same as seeing them in person.zaki.com
>>17625792>tasteoh? You mean all the tacky dogshit?
>>17627232Can't give good recs unless you tell us where you are and what your budget is. The furniture design industry is logistically stuck in like 1905 so most stuff is prohibitively expensive to ship and therefore pointless to rec
How do I tell a good rug from a bad one? I can get this one for $400, it's wool and apparently handmade. Worth?
>>17627314for 400 bucks it's almost guaranteed to be machinewovenwhich is fine, but know what you buy
>>17627314>>17627317yeah defo, will appreciate in value
What does /fa/ think of the industrial shabby chic aesthetic? I’m referring to exposed brick, exposed pipes, reclaimed wood, etc.
>>17627458I personally find the aesthetic to be pleasing but can’t explain why. I guess it adds character? IDKHowever, I think there are some people who can’t differentiate between shabby chic and just shabby. For example, there’s this venue in my area which used to be an old factory loft space that is rented out for weddings, sweet 16s, bar mitzvah’s, etc. It looks great for photoshoots, but it’s also known to have leaky ceilings whenever it rains, sinkholes in the foundation, and even broken steps. Plus it’s in a bad neighborhood. How the place hasn’t been shut down yet is a mystery
industrial looking items can be very nice, but the 'industrial aesthetic' ala tiktok and pinterest is dog shit
>>17627458went out of style 10 years ago, now its just cringe
>>17627342>>17627349here's what's on the back of it, any telltale signs of it being machine made?
>>17627314>>17627317>>17627815Looks hand knotted and is Indian. Usually indos are imperial like 6'x9' where that is in metric, so that's a little different. Probably around 80 knots per square inch. 400 is a good price for 2m x 3m if it is newish without any wear or damage. >>17627288Zaki has great stuff but it is expensive too. If you want good quality but more modestly priced check out greenfront in farmville Virginia. Do visit zaki though, that place is enormous.
>>17627458I do like it when it's a repurposed location that actually looked like that and was converted to apartments. It's soul when it's genuine. And the furniture in that pic looks pleasant and the room looks comfy.I remember not liking the way people most often decorated these kind of apartments back when this repurposed aesthetic was new and in all the "trendy" pics. In that picture that apartment looks "warm", but I think most people decorated and painted them in a overtly lit and cold way and never had curtains either so they always looked even more oversaturated from their already bright color palette. Maybe it was part of that whole larger ultra bright clinical fad that went strong until a couple years ago.When it's done like in your pic I like it.
>>17618881Its fashion cuz its lifestyle. Both one in the same imo
>>17619592>>17619691I can think of some slightly out of place threads from /an/ and /out/ that fit landscaping best. And if it allows endless discussions about flat, house and neighbourhood types /n/ would also contribute a bit of traffic.
>>17627229Just try it. If you like it, it works. In my opinion cramped patchwork apartments are way more interesting than spacious catalogue aesthetics without personality.
>>17628695Unless I want to go 100% Ikea it's the only option I have as the building interior itself is too cheap materials wise to go with more expensive styles nor is it soulful enough to go with something like shabby chic. That particular edgy NEET tumblr aesthetic that was popular a decade ago is literally the only thing I can fathom that won't end up looking sterile or inauthenticI also loathe the fact that I probably will commit the cliche of getting a pallet bed but it is literally the most practical option.It's sad because the building itselfis older than anyone currently alive inside of it and I'm near a very cosmopolitan area but everything else is drab as fuck so Kowloon Walled Autism is my only choice
>>17628856take a break from the internet, my man
>>17628887No. Stop being passive aggressive and effete. This is an area where autismis warranted.
>>17628856>Kowloon Walled AutismKek. Please post pictures when you're done.
>>17628684nice stool, rest of the furniture sucks ass though
>>17628856You should read about Enzo Mari and get a copy of Autoprogettazione (believe there are online copies available for free). An important primer in learning to appreciate design as well as plans for furniture that anyone can build out of the cheapest and most plentiful materials possible
>>17627815its handmade, but pay no more then 235 euro. secondhand market carped prices are very low.
>>17619592this so much
>>17628893>Autoprogettazionenothing autistic about being plebbit but u do u
>>17629393book is good, i didnt mean to greentext
>>17619592it should just be a part of /fa/ for now, this board is slow enough
>>17629215enzo mari had some intersting ideas and philosophies but if you actually furnish your place with those things you just end up looking like a bum
I've noticed the McMansion people will put a low end heriz into a room, while thinking it is super nice and antique. They just appear poor for failing ot buy a really nice rug for their room. Heriz is nice, for something like a cabin or a 1920s bungalow.
I see something like this and think "WTF? You have been ripped off. I know you overpaid for this piece of shit. Is it even hand made?"
>>17627458Material honesty will ALWAYS look good. But what your pic shows is not that. The coffee table and lamps make the whole interior look cheap.Go for exposes brick, pipe, showcase the original design. But don't use fake props.
>>17629642a couple sedia 1's in the studio seem nice :) especially in a fun material like LGS. doesn't take much imagination to elevate the ideas
>>17623089>he thinks its actually handmade
>>17627815>here's what's on the back of it, any telltale signs of it being machine made?99.9% of all rugs are machine made. LMAO, you think there is some Indian making your rug by hand? It's 2023, my friend exports rugs from Iran, and guess what they even make the Berber rugs you buy in Morocco at his factory, you go to the village and see the woman hand making it and you think you are getting the hand made one, the machines are much better than any person can make. You want a real hand made rug...you wont be able to afford it. Most of all, ask yourself, why do you want a hand made rug and why do you care if you can't even tell? Which by the way, no one can, again it's 2023, the technology has improved and the demand is greater than ever.
>>17631207>he doesn't have actual handmade rugs what's it like being poor?>>17631221hand knotted rugs aren't particularly rare although the major manufacturers seem to have moved out of india and are using nepalese craftsmen over the last decade. that said given the state of the rooms i see in the waywt I would be surprised if anyone on /fa/ could afford anything larger than a small 4x6 and that would be really pushing it>why do you want a hand made rug and why do you care if you can't even tell?well, it is actually fairly straightforward to tell, not for the layman of course, but it's not like machines and hand produce identical results. the best rugs these days are a combination of hand-crafting and industrial techniques, to be fair pretty much the best everything in design is a combination of the two. very reductive to view design otherwise
>>17631221just kill yourself>>17631316>not for the layman of coursesure you got to be a carpet expert with a degree in fuck yourself you fucking retard
>>17619592I feel like it'd be more practial to have a regular general in /fa/ for a while. Like the fragrance one. If that takes off then they'd probably consider a full board
>>17632171you don't need to be an expert by any means, but fuckhead is saying they're indistinguishable which is absolutely not the case lol >>17632010I work for a furniture company that sells rugs upwards of 75k USD(more for custom sizes of course:^))you can call me a feodra all you want, but you only reveal you don't know fucking shit retard>>17632560I agree, I don't think a full interior or design board can take off just because of how cost prohibitive it is. A basic artemide light is more expensive than the average fit in the waywt threads, so there's absolutely no chance an avg /fa/ user can contribute. Nevermind that the interior industry is twice as gay as the fashion industry /fa/ would have an absolute fit lmao
i love this thread, even the haters and retards who will never get it.
>>17627222IKEA or tasteful antiques
>>17632642shut up retard you don't know anything
>>17623772I almost got ripped off but returned it thankfully
I’ve seen a couple of lovers and haters of rugs in this thread so I’ll bite Currently looking to purchase this rug
>>17632787Supposedly it’s naturally dyed
>>17632791it is, that's why it has those streaks of color in the solid red there. A lot of indian rugs are made with vege dyes and I thought this might be one of them until I saw the signature in the end there. Too low res to read it, but I'm inclined to think it is persian. Also, the fringe is white, where the indians tend to tea dye theirs. Nice piece.
>>17632815It is Bidjar, 4,5 square meters Being offered it new for usd $7k
>>17632844its a nice rug, reminds me of a sarouk. heavily red carpets struggle in resell value. i would consider secondhand, a lot of money can be saved
>>17632844I think it's a little high for asking. you should be able to haggle them down however.
>>17632591>I work for a furniture companysure you do
>>17618854I own a Chinese Art Deco rug, 9' by 11', but it's too big to unroll in any room of my house. LOL
>>17633925why would anyone lie about that LOL fucking retards on /fa/ i swear
>>17633925>>17634025This, how retarded are you that it's beyond the realm of possibility for someone to work for a furniture company
>>17633899Yeah, haggling is expected with rugs. Don't be afraid to make an offer and start from there.
>>17618854my rug (more of a mat) has a bunny on it.
>>17635645No. Diy is about actually doing or building things, the fashion board is about looks and aesthetics. Interior decorating is looks and aesthetics and it doesn't make sense that diy would be more appropriate than here.
>>17635330I think its cute, but I don't really stand on it or anything
>>17636135it is cute!>>17635655i agree interior design belongs as a general on /fa/
>>17627815>any telltale signs of it being machine madeGenerally speaking, if there's no fringes on a rug, it's machine made. Hand knotted rugs nearly always have fringes on either end of the rug.Also check the selvedge, the edges down the side of the rug. If they are sewn on, it is machine made. Pic related.Generally, machine made rugs are not very thick, maybe 1 cm or less, but the backs of them are very stiff. They are easy to roll, but not fold.If the back of the rug is a solid canvas, that is a "hand tufted" rug. Which means it is hand made, but the yards are glued instead of knotted. It's much cheaper to make them this way, but they are also not very durable and can begin to smell after a while due to the glue in them.The most tricky to ID as machine made are the hand finished machine made rugs. They basically look like hand knotted rugs, but they are made out of cheap materials like bamboo silk. I've even seen these made with fake signatures on them, which seems illegal and immoral to me. If a rug is made in China, why are you putting an Iranian flag on it? To trick buyers, that's why.

what kind of coffee table would match wood furniture this color? I can't find another wood table in the same color and shade, I definitely don't want glass, and solid metal tables aren't very common or are disgusting looking
>>17639121looks ugly don't buy it
>>17639121that's ikea fake walnut + grey something mix just get some real walnut in whatever shade you want to compliment it. it doesn't have to be the same
>>17639121jesus christ, the colours here
>>17639121beech might be close, but its warmer than walnut with a white/gray stain. Check out items with "beach" (no pun intended) or "ocean" decor.
>>17639121what do you call this school of interior design? Ultra boring facade and random cabinet in a walkway
>>17640896Seems very MujiYou might be surprised at how many people are terrified of matching colorsso they just choose beige everythingTheir most colorful ideas are two toneThat's why two tone and neutral color rugs sell so well
>>17640896but if you're really good, you can show them a rug that isn't two tone, and they will crawl over broken glass to buy it because it matches so nicely and makes the entire room pop

>>17618854>>17618860>Opening the thread without fuckhueg window spam or house forrestsGood job, OP>>17623908That's an odd mix of old and new. For all the staging, the room doesn't look very functional.>>17623919The mountainscape is effay. The room itself is bland outside of the rug.
>>17641408>functionality over aesthetics>saarinen table>all kinds of textures, patterns, colours, materials>blandlmao this is why there should never be an interior design board on 4chan

>>17641489wheres this from?
>>17618854Yeah, I use the same logic when it comes to color pallets on /DIY/ that I use on /fa/. There are more dimensions than /fa/ however, lighting atmosphere, and ambiance are the third dimension that /fa/ lacks.

>>17642022look how upset you are lmao, i used the names cause its an iconic piece of furniture surrounded by more ambiguous pieces.regardless, as i said the room is far from being bland, you don't know shit about shit and you just came off looking even more retarded than before.
>>17642364Its a staged room for a product shot, i posted it and agree it's bland as fuck lol, but op was looking for rugs not beautifully styled spaces>more ambiguous piecesIdk man Paul Smith and the rug company are pretty notable lol
>>17642162You are embarrassing yourself
>>17642536you are so incredibly mad lol
>>17642522>Idk man Paul Smith and the rug company are pretty notable lolThere are famous people who make incredibly high end rugsNone of them are named Paul Smith :^)
>>17644178He is basically selling Gabbeh, which is the bottom end of hand knotted rugs
Personally, for your room >>17623919I would use something geometric like a gombad tabriz or this antique panel rug with persian poetry around the border. Maybe you like the abstract design, but it looks like every other low end gabbeh on the market. Sorta cringe.
>>17620165it'd have even less traffic than /diy/
>>17644176Well no of course not, Paul Smith is a fashion designer who has an ongoing collaboration with The Rug Company. TRC actually makes them, but that didn't seem like a point that needed to be made...>>17644213Lmao nice
>>17644189This look nothing like the one in the image, are you being obtuse on purpose?
>>17644224I chose that specific image because it shows the back of the rug, something Paul avoids on his website. Honestly, I assumed his product was even worse, and tufted at first glance, but I looked up some of his used stuff selling secondhand and it was knotted. Like I said, to each his own. Buy your Paul Smith if you like, but remember, it is not high quality merch.
>>17644223Isn't it odd how they arrived at a simple enough design it could be outsourced to India and made by child laborers? Really low knot count, solid colors with no actual patterns. Then they slap Paul Smith on the label and sell it at prices higher than a decent rug would cost.
>>17644851Your argument is essentially walking into Komatsu Seiren and calling it shit because it isn't some fuck off loro piana vicuna. You're the GBS of 4chan carpet spergs lol
>>17644988Paul Smith wants $14,000 for a 7x10 Gabbeh. Just solid bars of color.https://www.therugcompany.com/us/designers/paul-smith/4650-modern-swirl.htmlThat is absurd. You can get a 7x10 6la Habibian for almost half that.https://www.mprugs.com/persian-rugs-carpets/60497-10x6-green-silk-nain-persian-rug.phpWe're talking 1,000,000 knots per square meter vs maybe 90,000. Gabbehs require very little skill or time to produce. I have a gabbeh in front of kitty's litter box so she can wipe her little paws on it coming and going. She's got another one she uses like a scratch post.
>>17645127Like, you can just buy a gabbeh and throw your other $13,000 in the trash. Same effect.https://www.rugman.com/carpet-design/gabbeh-rugs/6x9-ft-afghan-hand-knotted-multicolor-wool-sku-146964.html
>>17645149both of those rugs look ugly and bad
>>17645161On the one hand, we have a gabbeh, on the other, we have a gabbeh, with paul smith's name on it. For approximately the same size rug, one is $250, the other is $4300.

>>17645195don't need to yours looks bad lol, this isn't difficult
>>17645208I'm not going to be the one arguing that gabbehs look especially good. That's argument you're trying to make.
>>17645211the paul smith rugs do look nice though, all the stuff you've been posting in this thread looks kinda shit
>>17645212>the paul smith rugs do look nice thoughAs you will notice, I haven't called Paul Smith's rugs ugly, because that is a matter of personal opinion. What I have pointed out is how low end the workmanship is in them, and how easy and cheap it is to find other rugs in that range of quality. If you like the look of them, I'm not judging you on that.
>>17645233you're the kind of dude to call a cy twombly artwork a bunch of scribbles and go "my kid could do that for much cheaper!" >personal opinion hahahahahahahaha christ thats funny
>>17645238Yeah, well you' seem like the kind of guy who buys that Apple branded washing machine in China. You can slap an Apple sticker on it, but it doesn't change what it is.
>>17623408HOLY SHIT IS THIS REAL>>????
>>17645195i like mexican/south american design more than oriental. fight me
>>17645642 You have no understanding of design or aesthetics and have sublimated that into autistic technical and production specifications. Your example of a washing machine further reveals this. A rug isnt a washing machine a car or a computer, the reason people buy those products are significantly different to the reasons people buy clothing, furniture, art etc. Its fine because you are an internet person, at best an amateur enthusiast and not someone who actually works in the world of design or someone who has the ability to buy nice stuff. So you cope with your boring ugly rugs that no one wants like someone who thinks cucinelli is the pinnacle of fashion. This is a stupid and ignorant way to approach design and unless you're completely autistic i think you know that. >>17645740Both are so terribly boring, so much intresting work being done in design and /fa/'s taste in stuck in 1880
>>17646134>design and handcraft from 1880 bad>print carpet made of chinesium fabric(plastic) good
>>17627458Mega cringe. Looks like a guy with a gay little beanie, tee with rolled up sleeves and a mustache with curled tips is about to show up to sell you a burger for $40 in 2014.
>>17630047Everything in that room is 1000% arab.
Thinking of getting one of these in Black, there's one of those office liquidator-type places near me selling a pair for about half of what gross beat-up ones go for>>17646145nobody in this thread is defending plastic rugs lol. old stuff is fine, I'm just saying design has advanced in the last 140 years. We've all seen these rugs a million times already you might as well be posting an Eames chair
>>17646427>defending plastic rugsyou do. all of those machine produced rugs have polyester in them which makes them dust magnets. you want your carpet to be 100% wool, which you can only get with traditional carpets.
>>17646434>machine produced which I haven't posted or defended in this thread >you want your carpet to be 100% wool, which you can only get with traditional carpets. you can find 100% wool non-traditional designs, there are several examples in this thread
>>17646134Let's imagine you are buying a Paul Smith rug. Paul Smith walks in, shakes your hand and makes (You) a special offer! You can buy the mass produced Paul Smith rug like everyone else, or for the same price, you can have a one of a kind Paul Smith rug. The only one which ever has or will be produced like it. Which do you choose?Because I choose the one of a kind. The extremely fine workmanship of the rug I buy ensures nobody will reproduce it again, because it's too hard for anyone but a master weaver to do it.
>>17646582you are so hopelessly middlebrow lol, absolutely clueless.
Any recommendations for where to get decent rugs for cheap? I don’t care if they’re synthetic blend or printed pattern, as long as they’re comfy and look decent
>>17646632That's what I thought. You buy the mass produced thing. That's the fundamental difference between us. You're so concerned about being part of the ingroup, you can't deviate even a little.>>17646134>Both are so terribly boring, so much intresting work being done in design and /fa/'s taste in stuck in 1880Isn't it funny how you admonish everyone for their inability to be creative, but you choose the templated same-same rug that everyone else in your circle has?
>>17646178>Everything in that room is 1000% arab.Everything except the rug maybe,https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33006412851.html
>>17645740Where do you use it? I'm thinking mexican designs look good in a log cabin or earth wall kind of place. Could be a fun look in a dorm room maybe.
