Hand-tufted by expert artisans using a special blend of the highest quality Chinese wools, these rugs have the softest of hands and a shine that is unsurpassed. Many New Wave designs feature hand carving for added depth and a Tibetan-like weave, mostly found in hand-knotted rugs, but expertly achieved in these hand-tufted pieces. Twentieth century decorative arts provide inspiration for this New Wave Collection. Drawing on 1910's Vienna succession, 1930's Art Deco, and 1950's Abstract Expressionism, New Wave rugs are contemporary design at its best. The New Wave Collection is new, fresh and edgy.
