jumping right in... as you may have seen a little while back on my instagram, i was testing out some dash & albert runners for our kitchen. the problem was none of them were looking just right to me. (but don't worry, many of them looked fab in our upstairs hall which needs a little runner refresh!) so i decided to go back to looking for a vintage persian runner for the kitchen. the tough part was the size - nothing bigger than about 2'8" and somewhere between 7-9'. so many of these old turkish runners are 3-4' wide and while beautiful, that's just too big. as a side note - that size could have worked for the other side of our island where there's more space BUT the counter stools are on that side and i decided that trying to pull stools out over the edge of a rug was going to be annoying.
so i gathered up a bunch of images that helped me make up my mind!
