RUGS

The rug is designed as an element that is meant to unify the architectural interior. The original series were conceived, not as supplemental pieces, but as integrated parts of a whole. Designs are often inspired by existing architectural DNA. For example, one rug for the Craig Ellwood Steinman House flows directly from the neighboring running-bond brick pattern of the walls, while another takes its cue from the rhythm of the ceiling beams. Christopher Farr of London and Los Angeles, represents and manufactures the rugs. Ancient and modern techniques are employed in the creation of the carpets. Hand knotted wool rugs are made in China, Guatemala, India, and the Middle East. Fifteen original designs have been produced or are in production.
