Patti Bosket Picks Bronze

Patti Bosket, au naturel, is an interior and wedding designer. She creates warm, comfortable designs using natural elements. Recently she came across one of our Melange rugs on Instagram and knew it would fit perfectly in a room she was designing.

Where are is the Melange rug now? Where in the world? What sort of room?

The rug is in a Northwest rustic home in Leavenworth, Washington. It is in a hallway lined with a collage wall of a local artists’ relief prints, drawings, sketches, and watercolors of local birds.

How did you pick these colors for the rug needed in this room?

I was looking for touches of turquoise to add to the room, and the combination of the native American influence and the earth tone colors of blacks, browns, and turquoise on this rug grounded the floor perfectly.

How does living in Washington inspire your design style?

I was born and raised in Washington, and the elements of nature have always been my inspiration. I love to bring the outdoors in when designing with clients.

Warmth in a Wine Cellar

Angela Boyle

We recently completed one of our largest rugs to date, clocking in at 34 feet long and dominating the shop. This dark, charcoal rug was for a winery in Sonoma. The rich, deep colors are reminiscent of oak casks and wine cellars.

This beautiful and subtle Columns rug is great for an urban/contemporary space. And these neutral colors can absorb a lot of wine. The rug would look fantastic with a little added merlot. (Though we hope there aren't too many accidents.)

Columns, our most durable construction, is awesome and versatile. With a variety of ways to organize the colors, it can match any environment. We were weaving this for 10 days. It was a team effort. 

Look at that length! Dominating the shop, indeed.

If 34 feet isn't impressive enough, the final rug weighed in at over 200 lbs. It is a person unto itself!
