Magic Carpet Ride

From Concept to Carpet

According to J.D. Staron, “It’s not just a rug, it’s a destination” and we took a trip to Maison et Objet last week, thanks to a wonderful presentation made by Jakub Staron at his Stamford, CT showroom (an event sponsored by Connecticut Cottages & Gardens, no less!)  With the help of pictures taken in Paris, as well as examples from his own collection of exquisite handmade rugs, Jakub walked us through some of the more popular trends in design.

Metallics and metals – look for burnished lusters and polished looks.

A Mix with Mylar

Natural motifs and materials – the love affair continues (and these beauties are made with recycled silk saris!)

Saturated with Saris

Bold grains and high-touch texture – the more nubbly, the better.

Bold and Bumpy

Blue and white – need we say more?

Beautiful Blue and White

Jakub travels the globe and translates the world into rugs, bringing us all on a magic carpet ride with his most innovative and inspirational patterns.  Each is truly a work of art – don’t you think?
