Vanderhurd is the Word.

I’ve been working on a redesign of my bedroom – it’s been a sllooww process. There is not that much time to focus on my own personal projects when I spend the entire week happily working through my clients own design dilemmas. At first, I wanted it this way… then, I wanted it that way… wait! this looks even better! Oy vey! In the end, however, I find I want it to have the same serene atmosphere, cozy layered look, and punch of interest and color as I did at the very start of this journey. So, you can imagine what Vanderhurd did to me when I honed in their bespoke carpet and durrie line (while looking for a baby boy’s room area rug). For twenty-five years, this design studio has been serving their global clientelle with the most gorgeous and finest wool, silk, cotton, linen and viscose textiles available. The patterns and details are lovely. There are a handful or more rugs that would work beautifully in my design scheme… or a clients scheme… or for anybody really. Word.

A perfect world consists of good music, something beautiful to look at every day, happiness. a place to call home, and a good designer to fill it with those beautiful things you’ll look at each day <wink>. Enter NIBA Rugs. The moment I reached my new favorite rug manufacturers website, I got lost in a virtual sensory exploration of some of the coolest rugs of all time. And as a designer, I come across a slew of fascinating, interesting, mind-boggling, and yes, sometimes, frightening area rugs. Not with NIBA. Founder, Beth Arrowood and her team of schooled designers, lead the way through their spin on the best yarns, the most up-to-date prints, and the widest rainbow of colors. Allow me to check off my favorites. I’d love to know yours!

Visit this site again in July when the flat-weave collection is introduced. I like to use this type on those condo rentals with wall to wall carpeting. A great way to break up the expanse of rental beige. NIBA that one in the tush!
