    Sandra Espinet
    Manufacturer: Aga John Oriental Rugs

    Products: Walk Little Bird

    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.
