Lately we have talked a lot about customization.
Mainly we've discussed cutting and shaping broadloom carpet to make a custom rug for a variety of reasons.
Today we are going to discuss custom rugs that are handknotted, specifically from Nepal.
If you like what you see here, please join us and Tamarian Carpets for lunch and an in depth demonstration with samples and slides. See below for details.
Custom fabricated rugs can solve a lot of design problems. Many designers may not be aware of all their options using them. Here are some ways custom rugs may be able to help you.
First a few definitions.
For purposes of this blog, a carpet reaches wall to wall. A rug does not.
The custom rugs that we are talking about today are rugs fabricated from broadloom carpet. The rug is born a carpet, but is tailored to fit a space like an area rug and suitably bound at the edges. More on that later.
Following World War II, abstract art enjoyed widespread acceptability in New York, which had become the world's premier modern art center.
Jackson Pollock was a superstar among the art world cognoscenti. Outside of New York, many people said and are probably still saying, "My granddaughter brings home better art from kindergarten."
In spite of the scoffing, Pollock's works and that of many other abstract painters are still on the scene today. Now rug designers are borrowing from the Mid Century and designing rugs in the abstract tradition.
