Interior Design by Kureck Jones

Turning an awkward space into a contemporary sitting room is a design challenge, but New York City  based interior design firm Kureck Jones makes it look easy.

Their effortless approach is featured in the October issue of New York Spaces Magazine, as a modern room that pulses with vibrant color, neutral aesthetics and an antique rug.

The accomplishment, however, wasn’t as easy as it looks in glossy print. “This was a difficult, L-shaped room, and the client wanted as much seating as possible,” says Doug Jones, one-half of the design duo that includes John Kurek.

Nazmiyal’s antique Sultanabad rug ended up being just what the space needed to work. “Using a smaller rug between the two chaises created a small, more intimate pull,” says Jones. Juxtaposed with the room’s other half, decorated in a neutral Chinese Deco, “the rug acts as a bridge between the contemporary and modern sensibilities of the room.”

“We love Oriental rugs, they reference history without being oppressive,” says Jones. But, the Persian rug almost lost out to a Swedish sample that was among a collection given to their firm by Nazmiyal’s Omri Schwartz.

“We also showed a Swedish rug we felt would have done the same thing for the room,” Jones explains. Swedish rugs are underutilized, according to him. It is a fate also fallen on Moroccan rugs, whose abstract, geometric designs are a favorite of the designer.

For Jones though, the intersection of taste and good design meets when you follow one simple rule: “You can use anything, anywhere, as long as you use it right.”
