Schroeder Goes Robotic!

Take a look at the green faux-grass rug that Schroeder Carpet made for the The Association of Artificial Intelligence (AAI). The AAI hosted its annual conference this week in downtown Austin. The group was in need of a large turf-like area rug so that the robots could play soccer and perform other robot activities. Check it out on KXAN’s news clip:



2015 Color of the Year: Marsala

Pantone has announced 2015’s color of the year: Marsala. “A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls. The impactful, full-bodied qualities of Marsala make for an elegant, grounded statement color when used on its own or as a strong accent to many other colors,” says Pantone.



Whether you decide to drape your home in the new color of the year or just add a touch a new color, here are our suggestions on how to coordinate and complement MARSALA!


Cole & Son’s Woods Wallpaper:  The black and white trees are a neutral design that looks great with any color especially the earthy marsala. Add marsala colored pillows, throw or duvet to this room scene.

Silver Leopard Staircase

We recently installed Stanton‘s Felix on a set of floating (or wrap around) stairs. Felix is a wool and nylon loop. Animal print is a very neutral style. It’s true! Take a look at this pattern and see what you think. (Schroeder worked with Heather Hogan Roberts Interiors.)











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
