“I love the way this large-scale carpet with a 13-by-25-inch repeat creates movement and depth for large spaces while avoiding a monotonous pattern,” says Welborn.
“Santiago Calatrava is one of my favorite architects and this carpet is evocative of his engineering masterpieces,” says Welborn. “Like his bridge designs, this carpet creates a sense of tension and movement.”
“I like to combine geometrics and organics in our modern resort designs and this carpet with a linear striae in the background and two overlapping organic patterns would fit nicely,” says Welborn. “The pop of red is also a nice flourish to this elegant but casual carpet.”

“These fiber-enhanced indoor/outdoor rugs resist mold and mildew—perfect for our island projects!” says Dauwe.
“This Esti Barnes design is simply a work of art! She has this way of understanding color and mood, so every piece tells a story and seamlessly fits into the design landscape,” says Dauwe.
“I love everything about Swarovski—the class and glamour it symbolizes—and I think this rug tastefully marries ‘earth’ and ‘jewel,’” says Dauwe.
“I love the energy and the vibrant collage-like patterns. They are works of art that are perfect for guestroom suites,” Barry says.
“These fabulous interlocking tiles go down like rubber, but have a felted carpet-like feel made from 100 percent recycled plastic bottles. They are so great, we are using them in our new office,” Barry says.
“I love these carpets that are textured and warm, and bring a real hospitality feel to the outdoors,” says Barry.
