All rugs from Madeline Weinrib
Recently, I've been sourcing rugs for a client's home and let me tell you, I've been looking at a lot of rugs...A LOT. After a certain amount of time staring at a computer screen full of rugs, they kind of all start to look the same. They're mostly rectangular, colorful (though there are an awful lot of beige options out there, just sayin') cotton or wool or silk, flat-weave, hand-loomed, yadda-yadda-yadda. Here's one thing I really got excited about though, these vintage Moroccan rugs I spied over at Madeline Weinrib. That they are gorgeous goes without saying (although I just said it) but that they're loaded with these asymmetries and imperfections is what makes me all goo-goo eyed. The human touch, the reminder that someone a long time ago crafted this thing of beauty by hand and by heart? Incredible.
