My Rug Design in a Dining Room

The rug I designed for Annie Selke is moving along from it’s initial concept and into the first stages of production. Samples are being created in India (which takes about six weeks), and then we can tweak or move forward to the next step. My design lost its border along the sides to better work for different rug sizes. The ends were also changed slightly, but the fringe remains (yay!) and it’s going to be made as a wool kilim.

My inspiration and design process is up on Annie Selke’s blog today. I mentioned that I would love to see this as part of a dining room, so I thought I’d pull together a design board to show what I mean. Someone make this room happen! You know. Next year when the rug is out.
