The gold standard of rugs is still the oversized Persian covering, but it’s been the gold standard for well over a century now. Maybe it’s time for something a bit more modern.
This rug from the French company Chevalier Edition is a good example (courtesy of Mr. Spear). It won’t give you the stateliness of a Persian rug, but it has the advantage of looking like it came from the twenty-first century, not the nineteenth.
