Judy Ross is a New York–based designer and artist. Traveling in India to work as an independent textile designer, she developed a passion for the centuries-old hand embroidery technique known as chain stitch, used by people in the Kashmir region to embellish shawls with traditional paisley and floral patterns. She lived on a houseboat on Upper Dal Lake while collaborating with the master embroiderers to develop a line of impeccably stitched contemporary wool scarves. From those scarves, her product line has expanded to home textiles: pillows, rugs, fabric by the yard, bedcovers and wall hangings. In 2008, Judy Ross Textiles began producing furniture pieces such as stools, cubes and screens.
Anyone who says you can’t mix and match patterns is just being a killjoy. We give you license to mix away: Scatter some splashy Lulu DK for Matouk pillows around; set Christen Maxwell's bold-printed pinched trays on the table—and get one of Capel’s extroverted cowhide rugs underfoot. Style note: If you’re mixing patterns, keep at least one major element (like a wall or sofa) solid.
Dramatic designs, rich colors, and hand-knotted wool are the hallmarks of Judy Ross' line of custom contemporary rugs. Choose from graphic prints and natural motifs like leaves, flowers, and vines. Looking for just an accent? Her striking hand-embroidered, chain-stitched wool pillows and handmade throws add a touch of elegance to any room.
If it’s floor coverings you want, it’s floor coverings you’ll get with this multivendor collection that will fulfill your ever rug need. Choose from indoor and outdoor options in a host of styles, colors and materials, with standouts including wool Orientals, thick flokatis, natural jute numbers and ones woven from recycled plastic yarns.
Cheery colors, buoyant patterns, and durable materials make these decor and accessory items perfect for personalizing a dorm room. But their appealing quality and sharp looks render them equally suitable for a well-appointed living room. Karma Living’s cable-woven tribal stools and embroidered throw cushions are instant space definers, as are Rhadi’s versatile indoor-outdoor floor mats. And don’t miss Tommy Hilfiger’s sheets (in hard-to-find extra-long size).
