Pantone's Colors of the Year: A Dichotomy in Design in a Post-Pandemic World

Perhaps the most important visual element of a rug is its colors—a color scheme is a luxury rug’s best chance at showing its personality and establishing its presence. Pantone, the authority on color in the design world, has selected two contrasting colors for 2021 (as opposed to the usual one): Ultimate Gray (which lives up to its namesake) and Illuminating, a bright and cheery lemon-yellow shade. read more

Classic Blue

July 02, 2020

When surveyed, more than half of all people say that their favorite color is blue, so it is not surprising that this color remains a perennial classic in interior design. Evoking both the sea and the sky at twilight, it is a color that can add either drama or tranquility to an interior.

With all the uncertainty of 2020, it seems fitting that Pantone choose this reliable, reassuring shade, PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue, as their color of the year.  read more

Green: The Countdown to Spring

April 08, 2020

With a new decade upon us and spring not too far away, there is something about the color green that seems particularly of the current moment right now. The color is something of an antidote to the modern world—even, you might say, a new way of life  in the twenty-first century—and a green rug can add a balancing and transformative  element to an environment. read more

The sophisticated designs of Ingrid Hellman-Knafve (1906-2003) combine a subtle sense of nature-inspired color and abstract, geometric patterns.

Elsa Gullberg-Design Pioneer

June 13, 2019

Elsa Gullberg could be called the mother of Swedish Modern. She was an extraordinary figure, far ahead of her time as a designer, a textile innovator, and an entrepreneur. Born in Malmo in 1886 into a bourgeois family, she had wanted to be a doctor but because of her father’s early death she was forced to take another, more traditional path for a woman in her time. read more
