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!

After finishing this Darby Cape Blue 8'x 10', we had some extra warp so we created new color ways. These  two new guys, Darby Bronze Lapis and Darby Smoke have rich, winter colors.

The vertical warp yarns play a more active roll when you have a dark background color. We love the sparkle of gold.

Neutral color with Sophisticated pattern

One of our favorite patterns, Creswell, looks great in a lot of colorways. We created some new samples of this taupe color with extra fluffy white yarn and it sold right away! We wove this 12' x 12' custom rug for our friends at Lenos Ltd in Nashville.
