    Designer:
    Sandra Espinet
    Manufacturer: Aga John Oriental Rugs

    Products: Walk Little Bird

    Standout: Quirky and classical coexist in the Los Angeles designer’s first stab at flooring, as fowl fades into a forest of abstraction across a ground of silk-wool blend.




    flooringflooring

    Designer: Michael Wolk
    Manufacturer: Pierpoint Pacific

    Products: Leaves

    Standout: Typically found frequenting furniture and upholstery showrooms, the Miami designer directs his modern tendencies to  the floor with a freeform group of tufted-wool rugs.
