An Inspired Collaboration: Inspired Interiors and The Rug Company

When asked to design a home for a well-traveled couple with large personalities, Emily Mackie and her team at Inspired Interiors needed to work with a company that could accommodate those big personalities with a lot of options, a keen eye, and a customer service team willing to go the extra mile to help find the perfect pieces for this home. So they turned to one of their most trusted vendors, The Rug Company.

“We love working with The Rug Company. Their customer service is super collaborative. They worked with us every step of the way to meet our price points and to help find to solutions to the patterns, colors, and feel our clients were going for.”

 – Emily Mackie, Founder of Inspired Interiors

Inspired Interiors transformed this 7,000+ square foot Ravenswood home to reflect a cultured, collaborative and curated residence with each room evoking travel-inspired experiences the clients shared together. It was important to them that their home contained inspirations in every room as a reminder of all they have done, all they have seen and all they have yet to do. To marry their love of mid-century modern family heirlooms, and influences from the wife’s Asian heritage, they mixed muted tones with bold pops of color to highlight their most prized possessions.

With the parlor, dining room and home office, they brought those bold colors in from the ground up with the help of The Rug Company.

4122NGreenview-Dec2017-603_preview.jpeg

A 12′ x 9′ Mohair Slate rug from The Rug Company Studio Collection was used in the parlor. Deliciously soft mohair is hand-knotted into a plain textural rug with a luxurious sheen. The Rug Company can supply any size and color, and a deep or short pile can be specified.

“We weren’t limited to what they had in stock. They listened to what we were looking for in the design components and found a perfect solution instead of plugging in solutions they had on the floor.”

 – Emily Mackie

The Dining Room featured the Bamboo Border Charcoal rug in a custom 18 x 10′ size. Featuring an ombré border which fades towards the center, Bamboo Border Charcoal is crafted with a chunkier knot, allowing for an accessible price point. Famed for its silk-like luster, bamboo yarn is cool to the touch and exhibits interesting fluctuations in tone, for a natural look.

758_13b_preview.jpeg.jpg

The home office included a beautiful Brushstrokes rug from Elie Saab’s collection with The Rug Company. The Brushstrokes design is an abstraction of painterly movements. Many subtle colors are at play in this design, gently merging together in shimmering silk yarns. The meticulous craftsmanship of The Rug Company’s weavers ensures that each tone of the palette is perfectly matched in lustrous silk, and then carefully blended with its neighbors to give a subtle but highly decorative effect.

This rug is a part of The Rug Company collection designed by Elie Saab. Lebanese born, Paris based fashion designer, Elie Saab, is a new addition to The Rug Company’s design roster. Renowned for ethereal and whimsical designs and his commitment to craftsmanship, Elie Saab is the master of delicate detailing. This dedication to couture and glamour means his designs are worn by some of the world’s most influential women. With a refreshing approach to rug design, the direction of his collection stems from his signature themes: lace, florals, texture, and abstraction.

4122NGreenview-Dec2017-1897_preview.jpeg.jpg

“The Rug Company also was really great about letting our clients try out the products first. It made our clients feel so much more comfortable with their purchases by simply being able to test them out in the home before purchasing each rug. Their customer service really goes above and beyond.”

– Emily Mackie

The final result is a home that truly unifies the couple’s diverse styles, interests, and experiences to create one unique home full of memories and inspiration for the future.

For more than 35 years, Room & Board has created modern furnishings designed to be practical, timeless and comfortable. To them, modern isn’t a trend to be chased; it’s a way of living.

linger_001547_18e.jpg

Timeless Design

Room & Board designs furniture in-house taking inspiration from the enduring design movements of the past, particularly Shaker, Asian, Danish, Arts & Crafts and Modern. These eras share principles they consider fundamental to good design, like honoring natural materials, working with simple, organic forms and making the functional beautiful. Their designs are rooted in this heritage but reinterpreted for life today.

American Craftsmanship

More than 90% of Room & Board’s products are manufactured in America using quality U.S. and imported materials. Working with family-owned companies around the country allows them to bring you the best craftsmanship and fastest delivery with the least amount of environmental impact.

Lightology Hosts: How Lighting Affects Emotion & Health

On Thursday, June 7th, Luxe Interiors + Design and Lightology hosted a dynamic panel conversation focusing on Human-Centric Lighting: Light Affecting Emotion & Health at Lightology’s River North Showroom at 215 W Chicago Avenue.

The distinguished and highly esteemed panelists, who have received numerous awards and recognitions in their respective fields, included: Chip von Weise, Principal at von Weis Associates, Greg Kay, CEO & Chief Lighting Designer at PureEdge Lighting, John Cialone, Partner at Tom Stringer Design Partners, and Michael Miller, Principal of Centaur Interiors.

The panel discussion was moderated by RNDD’s Jill Maremont. 

HeatherBaigelman_LUXE_LIGHTOLOGY-110.jpg

Some key takeaways from the night included:

The concept of natural light as a motivator. We’re more productive under bright, white light and more relaxed under warm tones that mimic sunset. Designers are now starting to apply these principles to their designs. When natural light isn’t an option, many designers change existing incandescent or fluorescent lighting to LED. Today’s vast selection of LED lighting solutions allows us as designers to allow Natural Light into the built environment and influences our overall wellness where we live and work.

Home automation is a major trend. Designers are now – more than ever – using smart home technology in new construction projects to control lighting and the ambiance of the home. (i.e. custom schedules, lighting controls working in tandem with other smart home controls like shades, music, home security, etc.)

Thanks to everyone who came out and joined us!
