Here is a picture of a rug with heavy abrash that we recently created for Sweet Peas Design in Chicago. Susan Brunstrum, the owner and head designer, at Sweet Peas had done another rug with us using 3 colors in a heavy abrash in the background of the rug with a cream-colored design in the pattern. This time, her client wanted just the heavy abrash background and no pattern for a highly subtle, textural rug. This project didn't leave much for me to do as a designer but I am thrilled with how the rug turned out.
