When you choose me to design a custom rug for you, I don’t do what most rug companies do: offer you a standard design in a choice of 10 colors or a few sizes. Instead, I actually pick up a pencil and design a rug just for you! 80% of my work is one of a kind. You can have any size, to the inch and any color, custom-dyed. You can choose from a wide selection of the finest natural fibers and techniques. Your furniture is custom; your landscaping is unique.

Why would you choose a rug off the rack? I can design a suite of rugs that will give your interiors a sense of flow and unity, tying together the designs with color and repeated elements, but choosing the right technique for each space. Whether you are looking for one rug or a suite of rugs, please call me for a personal consultation. I believe that my motto truly sums up my company: Outstanding Design. Highest Quality. The Ultimate in Personal Service.

  • for anybody who wants a high-quality custom rug!…

    We met with Barbara to discuss designing a rug for the living room of our new house. We had been looking for a ready-made rug for about two years, and we had also worked with another rug designer. Nothing seemed to work right. We spent a lot of time discussing design ideas with Barbara until an interesting concept emerged. She sent us a preliminary design that we liked. However, she felt that it was important to finalize it by coming to our house to ensure that the rug colors would go with the room colors. So, she drove 150 miles to do this. The final result was spectacular. The rug is the centerpiece of our living room, and we can’t imagine the room without it anymore. Barbara is a very talented professional designer, and the quality of workmanship of the rugs that she designs is extremely high. We highly recommend her to anybody who wants a high-quality custom rug.
