The delicious textures and delightful colors of the Park Throw make it an inviting accent for any room. Variegated yarn is hand-woven in a popcorn-like stitch, giving this throw its distinctive texture and coloration. It’s finished with a long hand-knotted fringe.
Here’s to one of our most-loved and best-selling designs: Concentric rug. This sky colorway features coastal inspired colors—blues, aquas and greens.

If you love a less colorful vibe, mix and match our warm and cool neutral rugs for modern or farmhouse styles. Our naturals palette rugs are filled with so much texture and complement one another no matter which you select.
They can even be used to tie together different rooms using a common natural hue from the brighter designs.
It’s so easy to design with blues—the most popular home decor color! Have fun mixing patterns & textures in cool and warm blue shades for an update to classic style.
Two classic pattern mixing practices are to coordinate prints & stripes and prints & textured solids.
Choose colors from your pattern that are also in the stripes or textures for a cohesive combo. To pair with our best-selling Acacia rug, we recommend subtly-textured Sampler Stripe or, for a brighter coordinate, bold Gemstones. Easy peasy!
Sometimes you want one focal point to stand out. In that case, pair your statement rug with a coordinating solid. Our solid Crackle rugs add a just the right pop to an open floor plan without adding more pattern.
This season, we’re focused on answering the top design questions we get asked. One of our most-requested topics is how do I choose rugs for an open-concept space?
To create a design flow in an open space, select a statement rug to take center-stage. Then style adjacent rooms with coordinating solids for a cohesive feel.
For those who love lots of pattern, texture and color, choose from our most popular rugs for a dramatic statement. The textures of vibrant Jubilee and Bon Bons are pure pedi-joy so no need for a foot massage.
Our solid Crackle rugs add just the right pop to an open floor plan without more pattern. They come in a variety of hues, making them easy to pair with your favorite designs.

A guest blog by artist, Jill Seale
As a product designer I am always seeking inspiration…
My Mom’s gorgeous Mid-Century china, a creamy turquoise with silver marbled through, grabbed my soul at first sight. The untamed liquid pattern is varied from plate to plate, yet they gather in unison for a most beguiling statement. She outgrew entertaining, I absconded with the plates, promising my sister she could have everything else. There was no question that I must possess them as they possessed me. Then down the rabbit hole I went, collecting marbled papers.
While traveling to Florence, Italy to visit a friend, I was determined to learn how to marble. Florence remains a center for paper marbling, likely because it’s an easy gift from a tourist destination. My friend, who is a tour guide, arranged for me to take a quick ‘try-it’ experience.When that first drop of paint hit the water, I was positively bitten. Swirling the paints around with different tools is mesmerizing. I was in an artist flow, totally in the zone, the rest of the world around me evaporated as the paint danced on the water. It’s as if marbling and I been waiting all our lives to meet.I had to bring this art form into my life and others’ in a larger way. I decided to return to Italy to spend months learning alongside a marbling master. What better place to study art than the birthplace of the Renaissance!
My friend had a connection to a retired book binder whom she cajoled into teaching me. He spoke no English, I speak no Italian, we both spoke the universal language of art and beauty. I learned the chemistry, physics and techniques to understand how the paints behave. He taught techniques and classic patterns. Another interesting aspect was his inclination to certain colors, much different than mine from years in product design for the gift industry…he looked to the Italian hillside for colors.
I tend to reach for more spirited colors and combinations, and I love what we’ve created for Company C, which is a good union of spirited movement and natural palette.When people ask me what I think about when I create a piece, I tell them that the process of marbling is entrancing – like watching a fire. I am completely present with what is happening in the marbling tray. A creative conversation takes place between artist and paints bringing a unique expression each time and I watch to capture it when it happens. The dance is organic and calming to the soul.
It is incredibly special for me be able to bring this beauty into spaces with Company C and our shared love of color and travel and gorgeous design. When I set out to create the exclusive rug designs for Company C, I looked to create modern centerpieces for the home using inspired colors. I wanted to create rugs that would speak to the home owner who would bring them into their own décor. The result? Each color palette translates into a unique statement piece.
The rugs are digitally printed, to preserve the intricate details of each design – truly art for the floor!
While marbling is ancient, an artist’s exploration of the art form and own personality brings new life to it. Another fascinating aspect of modern marbling is that technology allows it to go where it couldn’t before so marbling can be enjoyed in a much more prominent way than just on the shelves of the library. A new generation gets to enjoy it!
I hope you love all of the rugs I created especially for Company C!
Neutrals are well-loved for their flexibility and classic appeal. But creating a livable space that exudes personality? Well, doing a little more soul searching with favorite colors in mind may be in order.
It may seem a stretch to step outside the bounds of comfortable grays, beige and greige, but we promise – it won’t hurt a bit.
Did you know that every color can be a neutral? Yes, it is true – every color has a shade in the color spectrum that when used properly, can become a beautiful neutral backdrop.
We’ll be exploring this idea across several upcoming posts. Let’s look at one of the A-list neutrals and how to use it in your home. Always stylish green.
Green as a neutral? A bold statement, we know. It blends easily with almost every other color so the combinations could be endless. Plus with so many hues and tones available, it is a wonderful way to bring the outdoors in and chase the winter blahs away.
Here’s where our vision of green took us.
Varied shades of yellow green, blue greens and forest green unite magically. Just look at all of the interest it brings in a piece like Florence.
Select a favorite fabric pattern or texture to use on upholstery. Here we have Nori, Lucetta, Lequin and Easton.
Finish your room with some pillows and other accessories such as throws or a table lamp to pull your look together. The Draper table lamp in mint green has a timeless appeal.
Explore contrasting colors to make a fresh color combo.
Green is synonymous with grass, trees and other flora. Combine blues and greens for natural, watery color palettes. Bring in some ivory and brown to scale back a bit – but go for it with lots of interesting texture.
Curious about how you can take the color green and work it into your own decor? We’re always happy to answer design questions – drop us a note here in the comments.
Every spring, I travel with my design team from Company C to the Sturbridge Vintage Textiles and Brimfield Antique Markets in Massachusetts to scour antique stalls for great finds—vintage home textiles, clothing, antique furniture and more.
These fabulous pieces become the inspiration for new rugs, home textiles, and furniture for the company’s colorful new collections. We kick off each new season by gathering as many swatches, colors, photos and more and tack them onto vision boards.
Our design challenge becomes finding stories that “complement” all of our concepts—what looks fresh and new, what may align with trends we’re seeing in the market, and what is a perfect fit for Company C’s color and design style.
One of our new fall 2018 rugs that recently launched at the April High Point Market was inspired by a 1920’s antique shawl handmade in India and found in Brimfield. We played with the unique motifs, scale and color from the shawl to create a signature Company C rug.
The result is our Indira rug, a super colorful and textural hit at market.
The Emma Bedding collection is another example of how the fabulous pieces from the past can bring forth something completely brand new.
Inspired by a vintage embroidered quilt, this graceful design in cool and soothing blues is hand printed on crisp, yet soft cotton percale for a modern take on an antique look.
For me, it is all about “the hunt” and finding the perfect vintage reference to work with. Invigorated and inspired by the designs, I love the process of dreaming up new ways to infuse the character of those timeless pieces into our own collection, with fresh colors for today’s market.
Years ago, we found small pieces of very old tapestries at Sturbridge that had beautiful coloration. One of them became our Avalon rug, which has been one of our best selling hooked rugs for over 10 years.
It is a leafy design with saturated shades of blues and aquas – and today this fabulous rug lives in our house on the coast of Maine.
The discovery of vintage references that become the source of fresh, exciting designs that inspire colorful living in the market is what brings us the greatest joy.
Cheers to Colorful Living!
