Emma Gardner Launches Sakura in Los Angeles

 Award winning designer Emma Gardner’s made to order rug label, emma gardner design, introduces Sakura, an elegantly luxurious, textured ode to early spring, the cherry blossom. The signature design is shown in pink Chinese silk on a field of looped Tibetan wool creating depth and contrast. By moving beyond the literal, Emma’s design transports a classic Japanese element firmly into a contemporary creative vernacular.
All of Emma’s rugs are GoodWeave certified and hand-knotted in Nepal. Shown in 100 knots per inch, Sakura is woven in 50% Chinese silk and 50% Tibetian wool.
This and several designs from her new collection on showing now in our showroom. We also have several existing designs from inventory available at over 60% off. Contact our showroom for more details.

New Horizon Collection, by Gail Dysard

Designed with DCI, Gail Dysard of The Dysard Group translated some of our hand-knotted designs into their hand-tufted counterparts. This technique allows us to offer these ethereal patterns for environments where time may matter. We can do most projects in 12-14 weeks as opposed to 18-20 for hand-knotted. Yes, we can customize these into any size, color or content!

WestEdge Design Fair is a few weeks away!


We’ve collaborated with the West Hollywood Design District on a booth for the WestEdge Design Fair and we can’t wait! The incredibly talented Gulla Jonsdottir of GPlus Design has curated the space. We’re creating a custom rug designed by Gulla and it’s going to be AMAZING! Don’t want to spoil the surprise but we can say you’ll be floored (!) by this beautiful piece.
