Stately Damask--A traditional pattern with a contemporary twist

Our Stately Damask rug pattern is one of our most popular.  It's a traditional damask motif updated by limiting it to 2 colors and increasing the scale of the pattern.  In this family room designed by Martha O'Hara Interiors, the rug lays the foundation for a room with fun pops of limey green...a signature style for the talented designers at this Minneapolis-based design firm.

Dreaming of Spring

Here in Minnesota, we've had an extremely mild winter...outdoor hockey rinks melting in early February is a rare sight.  So...of course, we're all dreaming of an early spring.  With that in mind, yesterday I created a couple of contemporary rug designs with a few orchids sprinkled on the rugs in bright, fresh colors.  If you have any inspirations for rug designs, please feel free to share them with me and I'll see what I can do to create the rug.  I'm always looking for ideas.
