Sage and Clare is my kind of boho – global treasures that are handmade, soulful, and eclectic. Husband and wife duo Chris and Phoebe’s passion for color, texture, and objects with heart comes through with every piece. Serious about ethical practices, they spend months every year working side by side with weavers, block printers, and screen printers to bring Sage and Clare designs to life.

I have this thing for floor rugs, and greatly wish I could afford a few more so they could be switched out occasionally. The latest target of my affections is the Meteo line, a collaboration between French designer Inga Sempé and Golran. The contemporary Persian designs feature three different soft, contemporary geometric patterns that are each available in three colors.

Outdoor rugs can be kind of a nightmare when you take the elements into consideration. Shore rugs are a new line of innovative rugs woven with a specially designed silicone cord that can be used both indoors and out, with some really fun color combinations in the mix. The handwoven rugs would be perfect by the pool or on your yacht (ahem).

Ilot is one of those projects that I got really excited about and then was immediately crushed, because it’s a concept and not available for purchase. Ilot, French for island, was created by Marine Hunot during a residency in Fay Billot, a village in the French countryside. Hunot used two unlikely materials – felt and wicker – to create one amazing rug.

A good graphic rug can really pull a room together, whether as the focal point or as the common denominator of color. Aelfie has knocked it way out of the park with their collection of geometric floor coverings that are blowing up with color and shape.
