Everyone's got their own unique style, and their own unique space to work with.  Sometimes it's a space that's very small - and sometimes we just want the perfect fit.  With a custom carpet, you can have just that!

In this tiny NYC apartment, the client wanted their carpet to be perfectly framed within the outlined area of the preexisting wood flooring.

The repetitive offset square pattern of design number 1010 from our American Hooked Rug Collection pairs perfectly with the rigid geometry built into the floor, which creates it's own framing for, and draws the eye inwards towards, the carpet.

The result is a small yet open space that is light, and airy, and incredibly comfortable.

"Color became its own spatial framework in this Manhattan apartment, with designer Ryan Lawson channeling Carlo Scarp in a series of vibrant interventions. 'James and Steven seemed up for a different formula,' the designer reflects on the idiosyncratic palette, which eschews white walls in favor of a shade he calls "cream of mushroom soup". Against that neutral backdrop, bold splashes offer visual anchors. Counterintuitively, Lawson explains, these bold gestures offer moments of rest. "It frees your eye from having to look at small things.""

The carpet is a fully customized piece using an antique Persian flatweave paired with material from our simple yet stunning Kouhi Collection, which is perfectly suited to Ryan's unique eclectic style.

You can create a similarly punchy look for your own space using pieces of our Kouhi material to build your own fully customized design.

Choose your fabrics and your format, and we'll fabricate your carpet in house, which makes for a much faster turnaround.

Here's some samples of the solid colored materials available for you to get creative with, but don't forget that we've got a slew of neutrals that might be more your style - check the full collection to find your perfect fit.

We've been scouring the interwebs for designer styles that we can help the general public achieve, and what we've noticed most of late is the vast number of spaces using shag style carpets. Shag carpets can be the shabby chic touch you need, or provide the clean base for your space. Let's explore some of the fun spaces we've found on instagram, and see what we can offer that will get you that designer look.

They say diamonds are a girls best friend, but I'm beginning to think it's the shag carpet's best friend. Wonky diamonds seem to win the shagtastic style vote, as they are literally everywhere we look these days.

Here's a look at some of our own designs that will get your space on its way to being just as fantastic as the designer looks above:

Solid shag rugs have a knack for making a room look clean and serene, a great base for an airy space.

And now, for some of our own rugs in designer spaces:

So, if you're ready to get shagtastic, give a hollar, and we'll get you on your way to stylin' on em.

Sometimes while I'm scrolling through the immense amount of impressive interiors on instagram, I find myself pairing our rugs with a space. In this bedroom by Alma Intérieurs of France, the geometric choices and color ways immediately made me think of design #7227 from our Kouhi Woven Collection. While the design is more rigid than the curvilinear vibe of the headboard area, there's something about the two that yearn for each other.

What are your thoughts on this pairing? Yay or Nay?

Of course we love on any kind of woven art - weaving is kind of our thing. So finding these shag art carpets by Kahove was pretty exciting. Taking classic art pieces, like the Mona Lisa and Starry Night, and turning them into shag carpets Kahove breathes new and exciting life into them. What do you think, would you put one in your home?

Choosing the right rug for your space always starts with measuring the room it will live in. While this seems like an obvious first step, you'd be surprised how many people glance at a space and take guesses.

The problem with taking guesses is that you may end up with a carpet who's scale doesn't match the space it's in - wether that is too large, or too small, the fit and feel just isn't right and now you're forced to live with it or invest in another carpet.

If you're going for the wall to wall look, then measuring the room accurately is highly important. If it's just an inch or two off in any direction, the end result you're going for will not be achieved.

Sometimes it may not be the room in particular that needs measuring, but the specific space within the room. Maybe you want to delineate separate living areas with floor coverings. One way of deciding what size rug is the best for that space would be to use painters tape to measure out your ideal rug dimensions.

If you're purchasing a new pre-made rug, it's good to keep in mind the standard room sizes available when laying your tape lines. If you're ready to invest in something that's custom made just for you and your space, simply lay the tape exactly where you want the rug to sit. If you're going for an antique rug, the best thing to do is to layout two different tape lines - one for the smallest size you're willing to use, and one for the largest size - and then try all the workable options you find in the space before committing. Even if you're using tape to decide on a rug size, it's still good to double check yourself before heading out to shop.

Better safe than sorry, right?
