Atelier Février Rugs



These beautiful floor rugs by Atelier Février cost more than my first car (a 1987 VW Cabriolet convertible for those of you wondering), but goodness they’re a treat for the eyes. This is the kind of rug that people hang on the wall rather than lay underfoot. Each design features a modern look that’s been created with traditional craftsmanship.







Sage and Clare

Sage and Clare-1-Design Crush


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.

Meteo-1-Design Crush


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.

Shore Rugs

Shore Rugs-1-Design Crush


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).

Pampa-1-Design Crush


Two photographers from different worlds and cultures with different visions somehow managed to join forces in the creation of Pampa. Together they bridge the gap between Argentina and Australia, exploring the finest handwoven rugs and cushions made by incredibly talented artisans. I’ll take one of everything, please.

Ilot-1-Design Crush


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.
