emma gardner design: custom area rugs for a unique you

Emma Gardner Design‘s custom area rug collection is at Schroeder! This collection features vibrant designs that range for geometric to flower designs. Gardner’s area rugs are 100% hand knotted Tibetan wool and silk and certified by GoodWeave. (Side note: GoodWeave’s founder Kailash Satyarthi won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize for his effort to end child labor.)

Back to Emma! Though each design in her collection has been carefully crafted with an artistic eye, customers can make changes to the size, color and material (wool v silk) so that the rug can perfectly fit the size, mood or use of a space. Customers can even create their own design! With the help of Gardner, you can create your own piece of handcrafted art work.

Below are examples from her gorgeous collection. egd14 egd13 egd12 egd11 egd10 egd9 egd8 egd7 egd6 egd5 egd4 egd2 egd1
