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.
See beyond the horizon. Reminiscent of the serenity found in the striations of clouds drifting across the sky, this contemporary design wows. The abstract design offers texture with high to low tufting for a plush feel underfoot.
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.
If you’re not afraid of color, our Confetti and Color Code rugs are the perfect complement for accent areas.
With all the hues in our bright assortment, selecting upholstery fabrics to complete the space is a snap!
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 Fells, situated on a nearly 1,000-acre hillside in Newbury NH overlooking scenic Lake Sunapee, served as a summer retreat for three generations of the Hay family. John M Hay served as Secretary of State under both Presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt, and in August of 1902 President Roosevelt stayed overnight at the Fells while on a Presidential tour of New England. Now included in the National Register of Historic Places, charitable donations and volunteers help to preserve this historic estate and nature preserve.
Our friend and rug design contest winner Liz Hause is not only a talented interior designer, but also a passionate volunteer supporting the Fells. And this was her year to shine! Liz chose to decorate the Roosevelt bedroom for the annual Christmas at the Fells event, one of the largest fundraisers of the year. She anchored the room using Reflections, the signature rug she designed.
Liz is an amazing source of inspiration, whether it’s for holiday decorating or for a complete interior design project. Working with our Concord, NH retail team, Liz pulled just the right pieces to pair with her own elements to create a memorable Christmas masterpiece President Roosevelt would be thrilled to visit again. Great tips from Liz: natural elements paired with a soft palette of accents creates an environment that welcomes Christmas and the holiday season.
Interior designer Liz Hause dreamed of her Reflections Rug during our Design-a-Rug contest last year.
Inspired by the view from an airplane window, Liz began the design process to re-create the cloud formations and geometric patterns created on the ground, mimicking blue sky above and land below in dappled sunlight. Liz and Chris Chapin, Company C’s Chief Color Officer, then set out to bring the design to life.
Initial color concepts were soft cool blues and greens to represent water and the spring-time vibrancy of the ground, while warm oranges, yellows, and reds conveyed the reflection of the setting sun. Hand-tufted cut and loop pile and the use of hand-spun bamboo viscose bring shine and dimension to this winning design.
An acclaimed interior designer throughout New England, Liz created her design to bring a sophisticated look and color palette to her clients’ homes… and yours! To learn more about Liz’s work, visit www.lizhausedesign.com.
