Any recommendations for best rug for music room on wood floor, Turkish, Afghan or Persian?
But on a more serious note, we have this one (marketing photo):
As large and thick as possible.
No idea which of silk, wool etc is more absorbent/less reflective.
Then of course comes the consideration of whether you can hear a difference between different colours….
Not forgetting the importance of rug burn-in.
And direction too.
Thanks all, going to rug shop soon, I fancy vintage so it’ll be nicely run in🙂
This is what I lust after. It’s a beauty, but by the time we redo our living room it’ll probably be out of production.
I’d like a rug with Jeff Lynne on it
He has an R2D2?
And most important of all:
- Not touching the floor
- Not touching any other rugs
Its also made of wires.
Having taken up the carpet and underlay on a concrete floor, and had a solid wood floor laid, the room became very echoic. So I covered a large part of the new floor with a Tibetan wool rug. It rather defeated the object of the wooden floor, but at least it tamed the echo.
That’s part of the purpose of my proposed rug to tame acoustic piano without resorting to adjusting voicing
That was partly the reason for choosing a Tibetan rug - they’re rather thick, which I guessed might offer better sound absorbing properties than a thinner Persian style rug.
That’s lovely, especially the unusual (to me) central panel. Delightful panels all round.
Thank you. Each panel has a unique design and the main images in the central panel depict the Persian Lion and Sun (Shir o Khorshid) and the Winged Sun (Faravahar).
