Dover-2The rug on the floor and the art on the walls are often the most expensive investment in your home. We often know what we like, but do you really understand why these exquisite pieces are priced the way they are and whether you are making a sound investment?

Decorating with fine art is often a challenge. While rugs are the decorative art for your floors and fine art is the décor for your walls, it is critical these pieces work together to enhance, compliment and complete your desired look and feel to fit your lifestyle and taste. These pieces can also often be the most expensive investment to decorate your home and mistakes can be costly. Featuring experts Mahmud Jafri, CEO of Dover Rug & Home and Jacqui Becker of Jacqueline Becker Fine Arts Consulting Services will demystify the art of decorating with both genres as guests learn the facts on how to purchase fine art and fine rugs; what drives their prices and how to make an educated investment in pieces that will last a lifetime. Vignettes of exquisite carpets and fine art will be on display in classic, traditional, contemporary and transitional styles to further illustrate the discussion. Join in on the discussion and test your knowledge of the price values of each display!
