Warm Brights

Our ever-popular Landscape or Soledad rugs in warmer bright tones pair boldly with Brushstroke and Gemstones multis.

For less pattern, pair Crackle grass or peacock for textured color.

For performance without sacrificing style, our Cabana Stripe and Talavera rug tick all boxes.


Cool Brights

Best-selling Galleria rug is the perfect centerpiece for a colorful, yet classy, room. Pair it with Rhapsody for additional hues, or our new Jazzy or Gradations rugs for a subtle color callout.

For a more casual look, Hibiscus and Soiree still fulfill your color needs.
Confetti adds just a hint of a rainbow to tie it all together.

The Tree of Life Grows Two New Branches

The Tree of Life Grows Two New Branches

Our beloved Acacia rug welcomes two new designs specially-created to coordinate perfectly.


Sharing the same yarns as this best-seller, Tweedy (in new multi colorway) and Log Cabin are the perfect pairing to tie your space together.


With so many hues throughout these designs, selecting accents is a breeze—try pairing any of our velvety Veronica pillows or a super-soft Park throw for the finishing touch.

Veronica

Stunningly dimensional, this textural accent pillow is crafted of bias-cut ribbed cotton velvet, which is first pleated and then pieced into a lustrous chevron diamond pattern.

Park

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.

Coastal Inspiration

Coastal Inspiration

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.


Pair Positano or Sorrento for classic pattern mixing or Somner for a more subtle color match

Cayo

Abstract motifs in aquatic colors fill our Cayo rug with a whimsical coastal feel. The performance yarns are perfect for high traffic areas.

Skye

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.

Jazzy

This colorful stripe creates lively rhythm for your interiors. Each color is specially-dyed to add subtle variations across each row, while the loop pile is perfect for high traffic areas.

Blue Love

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.

Combine multiple shades of blue for a monochromatic look


Pair your favorite blues with our Old Glory or Medina rugs for colorful classic combo


Add pops of gold for a luxurious look

For a more traditional take on this modern color combo, try using a vintage floral like our Avalon rug.

If modern is more your style, geometrics like Griffin can be paired with different shades of blue, neutrals and golds.

Pattern Mixing

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!


Statement Pieces

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.

Try pairing Crackle with your favorite design! These fan-favorite designs are well-deserving of being called a statement: Captiva, Art & Soul, Galleria, Soiree, Jubilee, Bon Bons and Acacia.


If you’re looking for more texture, tweeds like Harrison, Tattersall and Tweedy add just the right amount of interest without overwhelming the main event.

How to Select Rugs for an Open-Concept Space

How to Select Rugs for an Open-Concept Space

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.

What the GoodWeave Label Means to Company C

Hitting the road to visit our factories in India is always an exciting prospect. It’s an opportunity to meet one-on-one with the talented artisans who work so diligently to produce our hand-crafted designs. Being hosted by these facilities is a treat – we get a firsthand look into the operations and have the chance to chat with the employees as they bring our creative vision to life.

It is also an opportunity for us to connect with the community supported by the GoodWeave initiative.

More than 12 years ago we made the decision to support this program, and our co-founder, Walter Chapin, still serves on their standards committee. This helps us uphold one of our guiding principles at Company C – to create products using sustainably sourced materials and humane production methods.

We partnered with GoodWeave to support their initiatives to work with rug manufacturers in India to make sure our handmade designs were made without the use of child labor, produced in safe working conditions, and that the employees at the factories were paid fairly.

We’re passionate about making rugs – the right way.

Each year, we donate a portion of our rug sales to GoodWeave’s effort, which helps improve the lives of children in India through education. On this trip I had the pleasure of visiting one of their schools. I felt such joy in seeing the positive impact that this program has on the children. I was pleasantly surprised to see that even the youngest siblings are allowed to attend school with their older brothers and sisters. This helps the families while both parents work outside the home.

The children flourish at these schools. It was heartwarming to spend some time with them in between their class work. They also gave me the chance to be a fly on the wall while they sang and danced!

As savvy consumers express their concern about how and where our rugs are made, the GoodWeave label on the backs of our rugs offers piece of mind, letting customers know that their rugs were created without the use of child labor. If you’ve ever wondered why we support this organization, the numbers help tell the story.

While on this trip I learned that to date, more than 3,936 children have been freed from exploitation, 23,996 have been enrolled in schools, and 59,152 workers have been covered under the system in India. GoodWeave sponsors the education of all rescued child laborers, along with providing them rehabilitation and medical services.

Their Child Friendly Communities program promotes education in villages. GoodWeave facilitators build close relationships with the community, instill the value of education within the parents and teachers, and follow up with the children to make sure they’re attending school. Those who aren’t at the appropriate academic level for the public school are encouraged to attend a GoodWeave-run Motivation and Learning Centers,  a place designed to accelerate learning and allow children to catch up to their peers. There are currently 38 such centers running in 51 Child Friendly Communities in India.

Without consumer support, these programs couldn’t happen.

This is why we continue to proudly support GoodWeave’s mission of healing and educating children. I’m already looking forward to my next visit!

What was the inspiration behind our Chelsea rug?

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.

chelsea-image1

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.

chelsea-image2

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.

Introducing Galleria

Every season finds us excited to share fresh designs with you, and this fall is no exception!  Galleria is our newest statement rug design, and the “glass act” of our modern opulence collection.  Inspired by the way the colors of Murano glass blend from one saturated hue to the next, this bursting paisley is drenched in layer upon layer of color.

Galleria is super-soft, hand-tufted of bamboo viscose.  And by soft we mean sumptuously so.  Galleria is perfect for your special oasis, or your casually dressy spaces…think favorite jeans and a velvet shirt.

Galleria is saturated in vibrant color, each shade enhanced by the shimmery shine only bamboo viscose yarns can deliver.
