DESIGNERS SELECT Rugs and Carpet Designers select favorite new modular and broadloom products Daniel A. Welborn, AIA Desso: Intrinsic Energy Collection Reader Service No. 225 Brintons: Public Spaces Collection Reader Service No. 226 Tai Ping: Samarkand Collection Reader Service No. 227 Principal Gettys Irvine, California “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.” “Santiago Calatrava is one of my favorite architects and this carpet is evocative of his engineering masterpieces. 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. The pop of red is also a nice flourish to this elegant but casual carpet.” Liz Levy Dauwe Couristan: South Padre Reader Service No. 228 Top Floor Rugs: Emmenthal Reader Service No. 229 Zenith International: Bijoux featuring Swarovski Reader Service No. 230 Interior Designer Wilson Associates Dallas “These fiber-enhanced indoor/outdoor rugs resist mold and mildew—perfect for our island projects!” “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.” “I love everything about Swarovski—the class and glamour it symbolizes—and I think this rug tastefully marries ‘earth’ and ‘jewel.’” Siobhan Barry Blue Train: Rugs by Calle Henzel Reader Service No. 231 Ecore International: Plains Series Reader Service No. 232 Dedon: Fishernet Reader Service No. 233 Partner ICRAVE New York “I love the energy and the vibrant collage-like patterns. They are works of art that are perfect for guestroom suites.” “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 o ice.” “I love these carpets that are textured and warm, and bring a real hospitality feel to the outdoors.” 74 APRIL 2012
