Christopher Farr: These arent Ordinary rugs

Rugs are often the most important and focal design element of a room. It can make or break the space completely.

In a perfect world, the entire room is designed based on the choice of rug. Today we’re going to be showcasing a brilliant and responsible collection from Christopher Farr and all the designers associated within the collective.

In a world full of irresponsible item production and exploitative labor its refreshing to see companies taking action to change the industry.

‘With backgrounds that are firmly rooted in antique Oriental carpets and textiles, Christopher Farr and partner Bourne share a passionate knowledge of contemporary art and design that informs the work that is produced to this day.’

Farr and his team go by the ancient Persian proverb “Whoever has the best wool makes the best rugs”. It’s not just about getting these rugs out for the market, it comes from passion and an obsession with quality.

He and his team have undertaken many methods of extensive research in rug creation to discover the perfect blend of wool sourcing from countries such as Iran, Afghanistan, and the United Kingdom.

Their hand spinning methods retain high lanolin content within the yarns, which eventually creates a patina that is lusted after and highly regarded in great Antique oriental carpets.

Wool isn’t the only material used in these artisan rugs, the team has experimented in mediums such as jute, linen, silk, and they are even beginning research into sustainable and recycled materials for the growing demand in the market today.

Christopher Farr rugs pass through the hands of many talented individuals before arriving at your doorstep. From the corners of Bamiyan in Afghanistan, to Konya in Turkey they have selected the finest of weavers male and female to complete the delicate and complex process of these rugs.

When it comes to style and design, Farr’s rugs are unparalleled in their unique splendor. The rugs are created with such thought and artistic inspiration they can easily be viewed as true works of art.

On top of this, Christopher Farr is also an active member of Care & Fair, an Indian based organization dedicated to eliminating child labor in the rug industry and educating the children located in populated weaving areas.

The Care & Fair organization was founded in 1994 and its core initiative was to combat child labor in the countries of origin, while also improving the living conditions for carpet knotters and their families.

Trend: Modern Desert Oasis

Desert Oasis Styled Pieces

Combine the appeal of clean minimal design with the warming and cozy touches of rustic desert decor, the result is a style that you can’t take your eyes off of: Modern Desert Oasis.

In today’s blog we’re going to be covering some gorgeous picks and pieces that can easily help you create your own desert oasis in your home.

Start with the basics: Seating

For this style, we’ll be using lots of exposed wooden frame chairs with rich earth/clay tones.

Next Step: Accessorize

Adding that natural desert ambiance is sometimes as simple as decorating existing furniture or space.

Mohair throws are great for draping over a chair or couch. Decorative pillows can add the desert look you’re looking for just by throwing them on top.

These Curated Kravet accessories can be mixed and matched and used in a variety of different ways.

Set it Down: Modern Wood Coffee Tables/Surfaces

The key to making this a ‘modern’ desert oasis, and not a natural history museum is the choice of gorgeous wood finish tables and surfaces.

The Mimi London and Robert James pieces we chose for this section make a nod to the great outdoors with defined and bold wood finishes, but feature modern touches that keep it from feeling dated.

Tie it all together: Rustic Desert Vibe Rugs

A well chosen rug can completely make or break the space. These Ready-to-Ship rugs from Kravet range from minimal neutral tones, to strong amber and clay colored themes.

With our picks, you can’t go wrong.
