Dining Room Chandelier Height

If you have an 8’ ceiling you should hang the chandelier so that the bottom of the chandelier is between 30” to 36” from the tabletop. Some designers will recommend for each additional foot of ceiling height you should add 3” to the suspension height. Other designers say that ceiling height shouldn’t affect the distance of the fixture from the tabletop, it’s important to note that not everyone agrees with this. You need to did what feel right to you, the best way to find out is to hang the chandelier at both heights and choose which height you like. The size and style of your chandelier will affect the height from which you should hang it. If you have an elaborate chandelier that takes up a lot of visual space you need to hang it a couple of inches higher than standard height. Again look at the different heights before committing to a certain height.

What is the difference between hand knotted, hand tufted and flat weave rugs?

What is the difference between hand knotted, hand tufted and flat weave rugs?
Posted by Andy on 10/10/2010 to Rugs
Hand-Knotted Rugs:

This type of rug is made in a loom, with warp cords from silk, cotton or wool stretched vertically and weft cords stretched horizontally forming many rows of hand tied knots. There are no glues or backing used in Hand-Knotted rugs. These rugs are usually referred to as Oriental or Persian and are made in Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, India, China, Turkey and other countries.

This type of rug is made by using glue and a cloth backing to hold the pile fibers(tufts)in place. These rugs are faster to make and not as valuable as a Hand Knotted rug. The thickness of the pile is determined by how much is sheared off. The piles are made from wool or synthetic materials.
Tahoe Biege RugFlat-Weave Rugs:

This type of rug is made like a old fashioned picnic basket by looping or overlapping creating a flat weave. These rugs are made from organic materials such as cotton, wool and bamboo and they are usually reversible. Some of the trade names are Soumak, Dhurry and Killim.
