The Northern hemisphere’s Dog Days of Summer officially ends this week. Scorching hot days and low rainfall were believed by the ancient Romans to be the domain of the dog star Sirius. But aside from scattered hot, dry days, England has been cloaked in rain for months. What brightens our day? Exclusives from our friends. COVER pulls out the office megaphone to announce Classic Rug Collection’s latest line, the 20th Century Collection.

Barbara Barran designed the 20th Century Collection (with a single exception – Bo Lundberg’s Manhattan rug which COVER blogged about last week). The luxurious, hand knotted collection officially launches during the Fall market, but Barbara, Yasmin and colleagues are giving COVER’s readers an exclusive preview. DJ
