With its commitment to craftsmanship, Momeni hand-makes every rug, be it a super-luxe Persian or a polypropylene outdoor runner. The family-owned company draws its design inspiration from Eastern and Western textiles like Turkish kilims and Native American blankets, as well as from quotidian sources such as cobblestone streets. And although Momeni weaves the majority of its indoor floor coverings from silk and New Zealand wool, including its traditional Asian and European patterns, it also creates a few from acrylic, mainly its children and tween lines. But whatever the material and whatever the use, Momeni rugs reflect a timeless love of texture and artistry.
Eastern and Western textiles, as well as quotidian sources such as cobblestone streets, inspire these hand-knotted wool and silk rugs. Take the luminous Dorado series, whose motifs lean toward the traditional, including curlicues and arabesques. Or the Java line, which features repeating geometric designs and patterns found in nature. And don’t miss the Lotus collection, especially the tableau of a tree branch with delicate budding flowers.
