Design blog focused on textiles, rugs and pattern.
This week, we've been working on a 12' x 15' Barrington Rug.
Madison Triangle is a new pattern from our Spring 2018 collection. Different color striped backgrounds give this a wide range of looks.
We just finished this l 12' x 18' for Tapis & Decor in Minneapolis. We started with a Photoshop rendering to show how stripes would look on the full size rug.
In the photo below, you can see the rendering taped to the loom. This is how the weavers keep track of the stripes to create controlled variation and rhythm in width. Although I planned the blend of yellow creams and pale greys in the "white" section in the sample, I didn't expect it to be so pretty in the room size rug.
We just launched this new pattern, Twisp 5, in our Spring Collection. I was thinking about making something thin that would go great on stairs. We tried several combinations to come up with this group of ribbed stripes.
