New: Thompson Collection


The Thompson Collection is made up of three designs, each with an old-fashioned name to inspire a certain personality – Peggy, Agnes and Joyce. They are based on traditional patterns, but designed in retro color combinations that are meant to re-examine the classic through a modern lens. The hand-knotted construction allows us to achieve intricate detailing and each style is available in five colorways.

New Residential Project:


West Village


This West Village townhouse was one of the most challenging projects we’ve taken on! Our clients tasked us with carpeting four staircases, each one different in size and shape.Each floor has its own theme of colorful jewel tones, all contrasting off the same neutral background. Hand-knotted Tibetan wool was used to ensure a clean, perfect fit.

New Commercial Project:


Office Building


We designed two minimalist rugs and situated them at opposite ends of the grand lobby to mirror one another. Produced in NZ wool and nylon for texture and durability, the rugs are designed with neutral tones, and contrasted by thin lines of gold and a tip-sheared loop pile. This element adds more dimensionality to a deceptively simple design.


Max Gimblett x Lucy Tupu


In 2018 we launched our first collaboration with the preeminent artist and national treasure of Aotearoa, New Zealand, Max Gimblett. We are excited to share news that two rugs from this collection, Silver Moons and Upright are in the windows of Te Papa and will be on display until June 20th. To compliment the rugs are several Flax cubes from our furniture line.  And if you just want a smaller version of the Max Gimblett collection there are art cards and posters available in Te Papa Store!

Born from a rare collaboration with this preeminent New Zealand artist, these designs were carefully selected from Max Gimblett's colorful works of ink on paper.


Recent Projects:



Dining Room + Foyer

Method + Moxie and their client decided on area rugs in warm, neutral hues for the entryway and a seating nook. Though the rugs are separated, they wanted them to be thematically connected, which we accomplished by using blue, silk lines – raised for a sense of movement on the nook piece. Each are hand-tufted in NZ wool, for refinement and durability.


Investment Firm

Multiple Spaces

Located in Jersey City, NJ, our client chose to customize linear-and-grid designed rugs for use in their commercial spaces – a lobby, meeting room and two lounges. All made of 100% NZ wool, five hand-tufted futuristic-looking rugs imbue the spaces with dimensionality and an understated elegance, yet are sturdy enough for heavy foot traffic.



Living Room

This client chose our retro Cuba St design for their Dallas home's living room. In an ombre-styled blend of custom gold and yellow tones, the area rug is a playful addition to its quirky, colorful surroundings.
