Love the very definitive statement.
awesome rug, awesome parquet. i remodeled a house this summer and for like 1 day i thought about asking the contractor/part-time 'pastor' if he would know where i could get some parquet like you'd see in some old, eastern european houses. i did not ask. it was all i could do to get the man to install black and white tile in the bathroom. i imagine parquet would have given him an eye twitch.
