|Mark Gonsenhauser's Custom Rug Department|
On a previous post we documented the making of a very large oversized custom rug for one of our customers. In this post we want to show you some of the advantages of having a custom rug made and illustrate how easy the process is from a design point of view. Of course, the primary advantage of having a custom rug made is that you can choose and design exactly what you want in the colors and size you want.
Below we highlighted two different companies that make custom rugs. The first company makes hand made rugs and the second produces machine made rugs.
#1- Tamarian hand made Tibetan wool rugs from Nepal.
Tamarian rugs are made in Nepal of Tibetan wool. Also known as Nepalese rugs, they are beautiful wool and silk creations. The Tibetan wool is known for its durability, rich texture and subtle color variation.
Creating your own design using as inspiration, fabrics, wallpaper, artwork or pictures is a fantastic way to bring your décor some originality and put your own unique style into a room.
Tamarian also offers a vast array of their patterns and designs to choose from.
Tamarian has over 2500 colors you can choose from or they do custom color matching. In addition the options for knot count and wool to silk content ratio give you even more choices.
Below is a Tamarian rug that was just completed.
This is a Tamarian design using the clients own custom color palette.
The finished product looks exactly like the sketch! The turn around time is about 3-6 months, depending on the size. As you can see the final product is worth the wait to get exactly what you want!
# 2- Dalyn Rug Company
Dalyn manufactures over 150 designs in 450 colors. Machine Made rugs are a less costly alternative to hand made rugs. Dalyn’s designs offer a sophisticated selection of patterns, textures, colors and shapes. They come in a pre-set variety of sizes in wool, nylon and polyester. The price points differ depending on the material and size. The turn around time is about 2 weeks.
Some of our other rug vendors are also capable of customizing their existing products. Momeni will take existing patterns and re-color them to your color palette. Nourison will take existing patterns and make them into sizes up to 16' x 40'.
We also have lots of other rug manufacturers that customize their products for you. For example, Capel, Design Materials and Fabrica. Come by our showroom and let us show you how we can provide you with the perfect rug in the perfect color!
