It's easy to unwind in the elegant media room of this Hamptons waterfront retreat.
In this high contrast space, designer Shawn Henderson achieves a balance between the dark and colorfully moody wall/sofa color, and the lighter off-white components that is both striking and soothing.
Henderson uses soft textural elements to add some cozy depth while a linear rigidity draws the eye upwards and across the room allowing one to really take in the entire space.
This is the kind of room that indulges the senses and makes you want to touch everything - to feel the contrast of solid and soft - and to get lost in the wind blowing through the branches outside of the windows.
If I had the perfect adult tree house, this would be it!
The carpet, design number 16058B from our Ingrain Collection, has a sort of natural vibe that is both texturally interesting, and incredibly durable - ready for whatever life brings it's way.
Loving on this space? Here's a closer look at the carpet that grounds it. Upon inspection one can see how the weave itself creates interest that is both intriguing and tough.
Everyone's got their own unique style, and their own unique space to work with. Sometimes, there's odd dimensions - a space that's very large, a space that's very small, an unusually angled hallway - and sometimes we just want the perfect fit. With a custom carpet, you can have just that!

There's a strength that comes with the use of black and red - a sort of statement that says, "I'm here, and I'm ready".
In this bold yet airy entry way, designer Patrick Printy uses the graphic nature of black and red to draw the eye towards individual statement pieces. The colors of the Navajo rug play perfectly with the Asian art on the walls, creating a sort of tension through conversation.
The rigidity of the jagged edges of the design adds a sense of motion to this energetic layout - keeping the eye in constant motion.

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?
The Portuguese artist, well known for her use of varying fiber art techniques to create works of woven sculptural art that draw attention to the need to save our oceans, did not start her journey on this path.
While she began her academic career set on going into the fashion industry, she quickly realized that the trade is one of the biggest polluters in the world and altered course. Now, using upcycled materials and waste from the textile industry, she aims to bring awareness to problems of imbalance in our world.
The works have expanded from the coral reef scenes she began with, and now encompass many textures and environments – you can feel deeply connected with the details of nature she recreates; be it underwater, in the forest, a field of flowers, the lunar landscape, or beyond. Using the most eco-friendly materials and processes available, Vanessa creates to call attention to the importance of our universe, our planet, our home.

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.
