I have long admired and appreciated the beauty of the rugs at The Rug Company designed by some of the world's most inspired and respected designers.  They are masters of print, art, architecture, interior and product design.  The Rug Company worked closely with each designer, harnessing their creative brilliance and translating their unique vision into beautiful rugs.

I have chosen some of my favorites rugs from The Rug Company and compiled them here for your viewing pleasure; they surely all are a work of art and inspiration. Being both sophisticated and classic, these rugs are made of hand-knotted Tibetan wool and silk; beauty and comfort has never looked so good.

From the moment it launched, the Diane Von Furstenberg rug collection seduced with its witty patterns, which are at the same time sexy and sophisticated.

Tim Gosling's rug designs are based on his love of the Art Deco movement in London, using design language born out of an historic sense of architecture and history.  The Deco Spiral rug was inspired by the clean, monochrome lines of Hay's Wharf Building, completed in the early 1930s on London's riverfront.

The Rug Company's Co-Founder and Creative Director, Suzanne Sharp is celebrated as an artistic mastermind and pioneer of rug design.  Her fearless creative energy and instinctive approach to design have enabled her to create covetable and distinctive rug collections.
A classical symmetrical key motif is repeated and twisted into a diagonal plane.  The pattern is then overlaid to produce a three dimensional effect in shades of green and charcoal.
