how to: create a geometric carpet rug

Materials:
rug pattern
carpet squares
t-square / straight ruler
utility knife
cutting surface
rug gripper adhesive tape

Directions:
1. Start by determining the overall dimensions of the carpet desired, then draw or sketch a pattern on a measured grid comparable to the 18” carpet squares.
hint: a pattern that adheres to those basic dimensions will be easiest to cut.

2. List colors and quantities of pieces needed to complete the pattern, then cut accordingly.

3. Connect pieces with rug gripper, set the rug as desired, then start decorating from the floor up!

summer favorites: sara

liora manne outdoor pillows
as always, designs from
Liora Manne are bold and colorful—these add a great pop to our
neutral furniture.
ray dining table
I think round tables are the perfect solution to a smaller space. This one is substantial in look and materials—and could almost live inside too.
sophia dining chairs
they’re dining chairs but I think they’re so comfortable that they could double as lounge chairs. The open weave is really fun and I love that the frame and weaving are the same color.

the making of: mille swirls rug

The making of the mille swirls rug and runner are a combination of art and technology—patented by artist Liora Manné. First, fibers resembling thin cotton puffs are blended to create a unique transparency of colors. These blended colors are rolled then sliced like sushi into thin pieces and laid out to create a mosaic—all by hand.

To transform this the fibers into a durable rug, the mille swirls pass through a loom of needles that entangle and blend the colors. For added strength and easy care, the rug is then saturated in a transparent latex formula and treated with a anti-microbial finish. The final product is a hand-made work of art—and at the same time it’s highly durable and ready for indoor or outdoor use.

hint: For best results, vacuum on a regular basis and address stains as they occur. Use any commercial carpet cleaner or mild soap with water—not dry powders—plus gentle rubbing and dabbing with a white cloth. Professional steam clean on a regular basis depending on traffic levels. Do Not Dry Clean.
