Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller of Carrier and Co set the stage for a holiday season of festivities, with gratitude for the warmth of good company, the richness of shared laughter, and the beauty of a table ready to welcome many.
A sense of calmness exudes from the mix of soft blues, ivories, and creams found repetitively used in varying facades and fabrics that is accented by the edge of reflective light upon surfaces as sun pours through the large windows.
There’s a juxtaposition of textures between the large scale of the ceiling and the small scale of the rug that leads the eye from top to bottom of this space, featuring design number 9026A from our High-Low Collection.

The naturally rustic vibe of raw wood beams pairs nicely with the casual feel of design number 1040 from our American Hooked Rug Collection in this bedroom by Haver Skolnick Architects.
The red floral elements of the rug compliments the red plaid fabrics without overpowering the space, and the ivory ground color adds a brightness that plays with the sunlight pouring through the windows.

It's wonderful to have clients who trust your vision and your process. In this project the client let the firm design as they pleased and project manage the entire renovation while he lived across the country.
A fresh transformation makes the space seem much larger through a bright and airy color palette. The room, lacquered from head to toe in a divine powder blue, creates a cheerful but serious home office for the CEO client.

One of the designers that we love to work with is Ryan Lawson. His touch ranges from eclectic style, to playful & funky, to clean and serene.
There is just so much to appreciate about Ryan's eclectic side. His use of carefully selected art and objects are amplified by texture, pattern, and finish, as seen in this Sag Harbor guest bedroom.
One thing that we've noticed about Ryan's eclectic spaces is the combination of three major elements - wood, metal, and textural fibers (upholstery, carpets, and wallpaper).
It's all in the details, as you can easily note by this gorgeous dovetailed mahogany trim with unlacquered brass handrail that is so nicely matched with a custom stair runner from our Kouhi Collection.
There is a warmth to these types of projects that generates a down to earth vibe and highlights an appreciation for objects and artwork of significance.
As we move into spaces with a clean and serene vibe, we often note cool grays and soft whites, still textural fibers, but less distinct patterns. Though even in simplicity, his eclectic flair can be recognized in the details.
Decisive use of basic shapes seems to be a theme that can be noted in many of Ryan's projects, but when we view one's that are uniquely playful we just love the way he uses color and shape to make bold statements, and think the pairing of graphic Navajo carpets is such a wonderful compliment to these funky spaces.
Sometimes we get the pleasure of working on a fully customized rug with Ryan, and it's amazing to see his senses of creativity and connection shine in pieces like this reinterpretation of a Memphis Milano design, woven in the Navajo tradition, which was produced to compliment the client's collection of antique rugs.
Bottom line - we are always impressed with Ryan's work, and love seeing our carpets featured in these wonderful and carefully curated spaces.
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?
