The Inspiration Behind Old Glory
We found an antique rug at a vintage textile show— and wanted to use the great motifs in a new design concept and, of course, Company C colors.
The classic design and border provided inspiration for the layout. We then used a red, white, and blue color concept — with deep navy contrasting against faded denim blues and reds for a fresh, timeless look!
A Fresh Take on a Classic Look A vibrant palette of red, white and blue lends a modern vibe to our Old Glory rug, evoking the beauty of traditional rug motifs in a new way. Expertly hand hooked oftie-dye wool yards, Old Glory is infused with the vintage appeal of a treasured heirloom, a classic with a contemporary twist for any space you place it.
Old Glory is the perfect statement rug to build your room around. Add in the Beacon and Saybrook chairs and the Whistler sofa and our braided velvet pillows to pull the whole room together.
The namesake of New York’s famed flower market, our new Chelsea rug is a welcome breath of spring-time inspiration as snow continues to blanket much of the country. This botanical beauty was a blast to design, and the process anything but traditional. The first step was to collect the floral specimens and greens from which to build a diverse and vivid color story.
We then “placed” these spiked blooms and leaves on our canvas, and moved them over and over again until we struck the right balance of height, color and texture. This created the inspiration to be shared with our rug craftsmen. We combined various yarn textures with several tufting techniques, creating visual delight.
The final version of the Chelsea rug features a strong statement of navy and burgundy, two of this season’s most on-trend colors. And like the sidewalks of New York’s flower district, a textural and tweedy background of un-dyed wool pops the saturated colors of flowers bringing spring indoors a little early this year.
Decorative pillows add a dash of wow and visually pull together colors in a room, and can be easily changed out as the seasons transition. With increased daylight, we all have spring fever…use some lighter, brighter pillows to transform a sofa, bed or chair.
We have collected some of our favorite studies in symmetry, and contrasted them with a selection of perfect pairings that coordinate, but don’t matchy-match. No matter your style, pile on the pillows for texture, seasonal interest, visual impact … and a comfortable place to relax.
