"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.""~Arch Digest
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.

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.
