Shadow rug design
I had to write about my Shadow rug design again i guess because i love it so much and it does have a lot of admirers…and they are growing. In our showroom Shadow almost never goes unnoticed.
A recent project by one of our clients shows just how many personalities Shadow rug can convey. Some clients place this rug against a dark wood floor which shows the design as a focal point. Others match the background of the rug to the color of the floor to create a sophisticated blend without overpowering the rest of the furnishing, but the design still takes center stage.
In this image I just got from our client however, i felt the urge to share it with you. I cannot ignore the atmosphere created by the plays of lights bouncing around this room coming from the window, light fixtures, chrome chairs and the “glassy” floor that’s on top lays my rug “Shadow” which simply plays off the lights in this room, with it’s warm golden over-scale shimmery silk pattern. Even the rug looks wet.
This room is minimal but there is so much going on thanks to the reflective lights filled with the addition of the warmth coming from the rug, everything here just screams GLAMOUR. I would love to sit in this room. and wait.

i am a color and texture lover and sometimes i just can’t get enough. but when i got this image of room setting from our client, i stopped everything i was doing and simply…stared.

“a beautiful rug is like a conversation piece laid in the middle of a room, only bigger.” sigal sasson
happy november to you all,
it’s amazing how time flies it’s scary don’t you think? now my friends, this post is in respond to comments i sometimes hear from people about rugs like “i didn’t think rugs can look so beautiful” or ” i thought rugs are just to cover the floor” or “sigal, if i didn’t know you i would never look at rugs the way i do now” and so on. the last comment was from a friend who came to visit me at the icff and had no clue about the world of rugs in terms of designs and transformations. my sister, for example, is amazed every time i come up with a new idea. she emails me images of inspiration that might trigger my imagination. i love to share my passion with her and she loves my updates. i am not bragging now.
you know, when i was little i remember my mother used to wash, by hand, her expensive and large oriental rugs. she rolled the rugs, carried them to our backyard and unrolled again to clean: she would wash them with a solution she made herself, bending on her hard working knees and brush, wash and rinse. over and over for hours. after, she would hand me a big squeegee to help her remove the water from the rugs. i did it about a thousand time on every piece. it is a hard work! today you have companies who do that for you.

later my mom would lay the rugs flat to dry in the sun. very much similar process of a rug making in nepal. it’s just that when i was little i didn’t know anything, i simply thought my mother liked to work too hard.
my point is, after the rugs were rolled it was nice to feel the cool stone under my feet, but i always felt that something was missing. i would count the days until my mother would lay the rugs back on the floor.
when my mom brought them back inside and and unrolled the rugs, it was like…someone had just lit up the room. the rooms looked beautiful again, grounded. i used to walk on the rugs barefoot just for the silky feel under my feet ,or i would throw a pillow and do my home work on it. *sigh* i can’t say i don’t have a special relationship with rugs:
floors are the very foundation to display gorgeous rugs, not just to cover, but to anchor and pull together every piece of furniture or art you have in the room.
so here are some pictures of our rugs in room settings:

It’s a busy week here…trying to blog from a tablet…kids…family. And going to sleep at four am every night…jet lag…
But am enjoying and trying to find inspiration at the same time. Speaking of inspiration i love to look at room settings…let alone room settings with beautiful area rugs. Surroundings that tell a story…an adventure…a thought.
I found some pictures of room settings…this time with rugs…my rugs. Enjoy.
Living room with “heliconia wild” hand knotted rug.
I love how the pattern stretches across the field. Makes such a statement.
Living room with “poet” rug.
What an entry way. I love this rug. It’s fun. It’s “whip”.
I love how the pattern of the rug is reflected in these ceramic stools. I wouldn’t add a thing.
What kind of rugs do you like? What mood you want your rug to bring into your home?
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.
