One of my very favorite things we own is this Aubusson rug we bought at ABC Carpet and Home in NYC.
Aubusson is a region in central France known for their beautiful rugs and tapestries. In 1580 weavers from Flanders (now Belgium) took refuge in Aubusson, their work became very popular in the homes of nobility through out Europe. What I love about Aubusson rugs is the muted colors, lovely designs and durability. They are also known for making some of the largest rugs. Unfortunately my dog Buddy has still has an occasional accident and it always seems to be on the ABC rug! I am often heard yelling "why can't you ever go on the rug from Marshalls???"
