ATLANTA - Currey & Company, a lighting and decorative accessories manufacturer, debuted its first collection of rugs at the recent High Point Market.
Following two years of design and development, the initial rug collection consists of eight designs available in 6x9, 8x10, 9x12 and 10x12 sizes. Inspired by historical and tribal designs, all rugs in the collection are hand-knotted in India of a New Zealand wool blend and achieve subtle colorations with Swiss dyes. Minor irregularities exist from one piece to the next due to the rugs' handmade construction.
All rugs are "ethically produced," according to a release from the company. Cecil Adams, creative director, Currey & Company provided guidance and expertise in the collection's creation.
"Traditional designs have been interpreted in new color palettes to appeal to 21st century sensibilities," Adams said. "Rugs have been processed to achieve an antique patina and a well-loved appearance."
Among the collection's designs are Khyber and Kermanshah. Khyber rug is inspired by a Khotan rug from Central Asia with cream and pale aqua colored medallions on the rust colored field enclosed by an Asian fretwork border. Kermanshah Rug presents a new twist on the classic floral motif in tones of pale blue, cream and gray.
The entire new rug collection is on display in Currey's showroom, IHFC M110. "Finally, we can say that we give our customers a true floor-to ceiling shopping experience," the company stated in a release.
