sometimes the inspiration doesn’t have to wow…it is the fruit that matters.
this is one of a very few rug designs that makes me wonder every time i look at it. no matter what the settings are…it could be in a beautiful modern living room or in a luxurious dressing room (yes indeed)…or just plain laid on the concrete floor in nepal ready to be shipped…i cannot stop but marvel at the details…the feel…
the hands that meticulously and patiently weaved it.
it gives this labor of love a whole new dimension…
a recognition and understanding to the hand-made product…
and what it takes to make it happen.
cosmo made to order is a blend of himalayan wool and other luxurious fibers all weaved into a lush cut pile ground.
it’s a rug of many moods.
it can look dramatic.
from any angle this rug reveals a granular like feel resembling gravel. can you see it? that is the influence behind the design. it’s an every day kind of inspiration but the fruit is lots of labor on love.
abstract in design, the amount of fibers considered for this rug and the way in which they are integrated requires a good amount of control. otherwise, there is always the tendency to over do it.
it can look subtle…below.
when our client chose tone on tone for this rug one of the fibers used…silk…reflects light and so a beautiful glow of copper color is showing, accenting the surroundings (i need to give photography tips to our sweet and so helpful sales person in ny showroom. thank you frank).
how cool and just plain happy is this one? gotta love it.
was custom made for a very specific and gutsy taste. did i mentioned “moods”?
it’s a rug fully customizable
and can fit any
of your moods.

i’ve created a new line of leather rugs for a while now and as we speak this line is hot and gets a lot of attention at RUG-ART (also got a lot of feedback on icff show).
it’s a great line of cow-hide rugs, made of small leather pieces sewn together (not glued), for longevity and quality.
properly cared for, your hair-on-hide rug will last for many years even a life time. easy to care – simple vacuuming every once in a while to remove dirt is a good idea, otherwise, dirt left in the rug can destroy the leather when walked on (imagine rubbing your face with dust particles every time you touch it. not pretty). professional cleaning when necessary will take care of business too.
for those who are looking to add that chic and modern look in their interiors, hair-on-hide provides just that.

there is a new blog in town. not only that i love its visual appeal (cool and nifty), i also love the way richard rabel puts his words together. he is simply talking and i can sense his admiration to art.
richard chose to post in his blog about one of my rug designs “noche”…which inspired him and which i found he loves so much. when i say i love his word choice this is what i mean: “…the noche collection is truly ‘the bomb’…”, i mean not only that it makes me smile but hey…it rocks.
you can check it out in his new blog here
thank you richard.
hope you all have a great weekend. i know i will.
