How to Make an Entrance

We recently had a chance to make this stunning entry rug for Colleen Knowles Interior Design.

The client wanted a thinner version to clear the door. This also created a sleeker look. See options above.

It’s the first rug we have woven on our new 10’ loom, “Suzy”.

Warm Us Up

Amy Tyson

In the last couple of months, we’ve seen an increase in demand for warm toned rugs. So much brown! Maybe it’s just a west coast thing but from California to Washington, people are looking for something beyond the standard grey palette.

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.
