A law office contacted us recently with a custom job request. They had a rug they wanted to use in their lobby/welcoming area but it was too large! It was a 5 x 8 rug but the largest the room could fit was a 5 x 5. Well, they brought the rug to right place because we here at Rug Ideas have done downsizing countless times before. We discussed where to do the cut during our initial conversation to make sure the rug would look great. Take a look at the before pics below:
After carefully taping the area to be cut we started work on the separation. One of our master weavers cut the rug by hand and started on binding the cut ends so that the final product would be 2 great looking, functioning rugs. We used top of the line New Zealand wool to do the binding and everything was done by hand. Take a look at the results below:
The 2 rugs look great and not only that, it's impossible to tell that they were 1 rug to begin with. The lawyer just set these down in his office yesterday and gave us a call to exclaim how happy he was with his rugs. If you have a custom rug job give us a call at Rug Ideas so we can step you through your various options. We love helping your rug ideas come to fruition!
