The River North Design District (RNND) is excited to welcome our newest showroom Member to our group, The Rug Company!
The Rug Company was founded in 1997 with the aim of creating the most desirable rugs in the world. The concept was simple, but pioneering: to combine the ancient craft of rug-making with dazzling contemporary designs.
They are obsessive about good design, always striving to innovate and inspire with their own collections. They truly understand the unique heritage and significance of traditional rug artisanship. Their weavers continue to craft the rugs entirely by hand, using the very same techniques as their ancestors.
They understand the importance of the raw material because they know that a rug is only as good as the fibre it is woven from. They use wool that comes from high on the Tibetan plateau, wool that is so rich in natural lanolin that it is oily to the touch. It must be handled by the spinners, weavers and dyers with such reverence that it loses none of its extraordinary properties.
They collaborate with some of the world’s most inspirational designers, each a creative leader in their domain, including Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Diane von Furstenberg and Kelly Wearstler.
They understand the importance of service and their sales team not only have an expert understanding of the rugs but also how to best use and place them. They will go to great lengths to guide you through the rug buying process, helping you find the perfect piece.
Please help us in welcoming them to the RNDD community!
