Floor Show: Designers Collaborative on Decorative Carpets

Alix G. Perrachon’s ravishing new book The Decorative Carpet: Fine Handmade Rugs in Contemporary Interiors, includes several Designers Collaborative members–Bruce Bierman, Ronald Bricke,  Carl D’Aquino, Glenn Gissler, and Tim Button–discussing the use of fine rugs in their projects. On May 24, Tim and Carl joined Alix and designer Sam Botero on a panel at The Creative Touch, a handmade rug showroom in Secaucus, NJ, to talk further on the subject. The panel discussion was fascinating and informative, and the book is an invaluable and beautiful reference on the art of decorating with great rugs.
