Rug “Re-Creation”

A “re-creation” rug. This Chinda collection rug was originally imported to the United States by Pande Cameron. The Chindia collection was phased out in the 1980’s. Our client loved this rug so much, they wanted another one. We were able to make contact with the original weaver in India via a great friend and mentor of ours.  Special thanks to Norm Sweeters for making this happen. This hand knotted “re-creation” is enroute from India.  Do you have a rug that you want to “re-create”?  We might be able to assist you.

We Love Creating Custom rugs

These rugs are in the tufting process. You can see the area where the sample was made in two photo’s. This is done before production for several reasons but most of all for quality! No surprises!! They still need to be finished and backed. They should be completed by the end of the week and prepared for shipment!

Made to Order Rug Edging Choices

corners

Our showroom offers a variety of products as “made to order”.  We don’t use the word “custom” since that word makes things sound expensive.  The image above shares some industry terms that are used to describe materials and treatments used to create “made to order” rugs.  On the far left is an economical way to have a “wide” border.  The material is run through a folder and the stitching shows.  Corners are overlapped since it cost less to do that versus hand sew mitred corners.  The second from the left is “blindstitch” with an overlapped corner.  One edge of the fabric is sewn onto the field of the rug.  It is wrapped and glued onto the back.   The middle example is blindstitch with a hand sewn mitred corner.  This is the most labor intensive process for applying an edge finish.  The narrow machine binding is the simplest and most cost effective way to finish a “made to order” area rug.  “Serging” on the far right is just a bit more expensive than narrow machine binding.  Often times, when creating a rug, we purchase extra matching wool serging from the mill so that we can exactly match the color of the wool used in the field of the rug.

Custom Designer Rugs

IMG_5347 IMG_5348 IMG_5349 IMG_5350

We love to do custom area rugs!  We recently reconnected with an old friend who is now our liason for custom tufted rugs overseas.  And his wife is our artist to assist you in creating the perfect rug!  We now offer these rugs in a variety of fibers including nylon, New Zealand wool, bamboo and silk.  Fibers can also be combined.  We have a library of designs. We can modify the design to meet your specifications.  We have 100’s of ARS color poms (see below) to select from which are keyed to the universal Pantone color choices.   We offer artwork (as shown in the images above) within 48 hours at no cost.  We make a strike off (as shown in the images above for a nominal charge).  The strike off cost will be rebated with an order. This is a terrific program.  We have sourced with an old friend in the industry to offer this program at a very competitive price and reasonable delivery times.  Only the finest fibers and constructions are offered.  You will not be disappointed.   Consider using fabrics as your inspiration.  We can match a fabric pattern (see below) or interpret it to fit your design needs.

Custom Stair Runners

Unique stairs runners make a boring staircase a focal point of your home.   The stairs shown above had a plain beige carpet before we put our touches to it.  For this set of curved stairs, we used input from our client along with tying in some continuity from the Nourison wool diamond pattern carpet that we installed in the media room.  Because the stair is curved, we had each step individually made so that the pattern in the border matched.

Need some help with your stairs?  Let us help.

Custom Area Rugs

Shown in these photos is an example of how creative we can be in creating a rug for a client’s need.  In this case, Leading Edge Aviation in Costa Mesa wanted an area rug for their conference room (notice the airplane wing conference table).  Our design incorporated a logo of a seat belt being fasten like you see from the passenger seat on every commercial aircraft.  The red field of the rug uses several shades of red to create an “abrash” effect.  In addition, we incorporated a “salt & pepper” transition to blend the end of the seat belt strap into the field of the area rug.

Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets has created some spectacular custom rugs over the years such as this one on the cover or Traditional Home and this custom car design rug.  Let us assist you.
