Some rugs are meant to stop conversation, others invite you to step inside and join in. Whatever conversation happens in Ernie and Jane’s living room happens around this gorgeous 9’x 12′ Beljik.
Ernie wasn’t really looking for a rug when he came to the Rug Room in Ephrata.
In our digital world many of us can easily work while on the road or move cross country and still be able to do our job. Working on a heavy duty loom doesn’t seem to provide you that flexibility. Or does it?
We need to pick a rug for our house but how do I get my significant other to like the same rug I like?
Ahhhhh, yes this can be a challenge and no, none of us are councilors. We do not encourage arm wrestling as a decision making process on the sales floor. We have noticed a few shopping techniques.
Are you the Scout, the Negotiator or “Whatever you Like is fine with me” shopper?
Imagine this scenario: You come into the Rug Room looking for a plain colored rug. Why?
Well, your couch has a pattern, your love seat has a slightly different pattern, the armchair is in a contrasting color and the wallpaper and curtains all bring their own unique challenges to the design table. Too many patterns you think. The only solution to this seems to be a plain colored rug with as little pattern as possible.
In the Rug Room we see this scenario many times and help our customers combine the patterns in their home with a Bunyaad rug that also offers a variety of colors and patterns. Let us show you how.
Cooking in season is nothing new for people in Pakistan. Instead, it’s a way of life.
Now, that’s not to say that the fast food giants and processed foods aren’t creeping into the Pakistani diet at an alarming rate. They are but for the most part, most families still are preparing meals using what’s being harvested within 100 miles of their home.
On a recent trip to Pakistan I watched my mother-in-law Fazeelat carefully carving out the inside of what is called a tinda squash here in Lahore. A tinda squash is actually a small, green gourd that’s in season in May and June. They look somewhat like a green apple, with soft fuzzy hairs on the green rind and white flesh inside. They grow on four to five foot vines and are ready for harvest in 70 days. They are also called Indian round gourds, apple gourds or Indian baby pumpkins.
