From our bespoke-inspired Tailormade wool rugs to our new Hospitality sisal, Urbana, here are four exciting collections to inspire your spring projects.
The Tailormade Collection takes a modern spin on timeless patterns—from toothy herringbones to crisp pinstripes and dashing plaids—woven from classic British wools. The result is a collection of beautiful bespoke rugs, available in six versatile styles and a choice of colors and custom finishes to mix and match from room to room. Every Tailormade rug is woven to order on jacquard looms at Merida’s mill in Fall River, a city that was once a major center of American textile manufacturing. In tribute to that heritage, each style in the Tailormade collection is named for a founder of Fall River’s textile industry. Merida is proud to be writing the next chapter in that American-made story.
Inspired by one of Europe’s most dynamic cities, where art and beauty are the fabric of life, Antwerp takes the science of color mixing to an unprecedented level–blending multiple colored yarns to create a beautiful and durable sisal without equal. Antwerp blends science, art, and craftsmanship to create a masterful expression of subtlety and sophistication. Spun, mixed, and woven in Belgium. Hand finished in America.
A refined jute weave that’s supple yet structurally firm, with a naturally variant, hand-braided design, Varkala embraces the concept of beauty in imperfection. Following the thread of our best selling Bora Bora jute, Varkala seams invisibly when creating large or custom-shaped rugs. Using a technique that mimics the original weaving process, our craftsmen are able to produce a robust and beautiful seam.
Equally stunning in residential or hospitality settings, Urbana integrates refined design and durability. Urbana’s unique yarn soaking treatment locks stain repellant into the fibers before they are woven, providing much longer-lasting stain resistance than a topically treated rug. The tight structure and low profile of Urbana make it appropriate for use in high traffic areas, in offices, and on stairs, in addition to family, living, and dining rooms. Urbana is already being used by a high end fashion boutique in Los Angeles, a luxury hotel in Miami, and, as featured in the above photos, a prestigious interior design firm in New York City.
