Turkana sisal rug in San Francisco Decorator Showcase

This week’s design project is a master bedroom in the 2009 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. It is considered to be the West Coast’s premiere design showhouse event, featuring renowned architects and interior designers from the region. Proceeds from the Showcase benefit the Financial Aid Program of San Francisco University High School, helping nearly 25% of the student body.

We worked with San Francisco interior designer Cecilie Starin to place a Turkana rug in Glacier in the master bedroom’s study area. The rippling pattern of the rug adds a calm, contemporary feel that compliments the graceful arch of the traditional furniture. I love how this space manages to be both elegant and practical at the same time.

“I love working with Merida because of their quality, continual innovation with weaves and color and because their products are both stylish and environmentally friendly.  Their service and deliveries are top notch.” -Cecilie Starin
