I want my Victorian fainting couch to look like Sigmund Freud’s

I do love this query from The New York Times Home section: I want my Victorian fainting couch to look like Sigmund Freud’s. Where can I find upholstery fabric in Persian kilim patterns?

Often when I scan the Home section, I think, who writes in questions about home decor to The New York Times? They must be made up. But I can sort of imagine at least five people I know asking this question. The whole article is set up around this inevitable line: "Almost any Middle Eastern rug with a geometric pattern could serve as a Freudian slip."

Since you mentioned Sigmund Freud, check out my exclusive interviews with him just the other day on my blog. I think you'll really enjoy it.
