Like so many areas of design, contemporary rugs have seen an explosion of innovation and aesthetic experimentalism in recent years. Artists are exploring with new fibers and materials, and weavers are finding ways to incorporate traditional motifs and techniques using eco-conscious practices for more sustainable and earth-friendly finished products.
Because our first love will always be vintage and antique rugs, DLB’s contemporary collection contains many pieces that incorporate designs that reference antique and vintage modes.
