More than 50 one-of-a-kind, intricately designed handmade rugs are at the heart of a first-time collaboration between Gary Friedman, chairman and co-CEO of Restoration Hardware, and Ben Soleimani, principal and head designer of Mansour | Mansour Modern, a fourth generation family business that offers fine antique and contemporary rugs.
The collection spans 13 different groups of richly colored, hand-knotted designs, Tibetans, distressed and heathered wools and flatweaves, and in a variety of patterns that reference architectural ironwork, antique carpets, North African inspirations and Art Deco looks. Each hand-made carpet can take six to seven months to complete. It is available in stores and online now.
