Thomas' concept is simple. The design concept is to mix unrelated historic design styles -- art nouveau, 60's pop art, 70's minimalism, 18th century baroque -- and reinterpret these disparate periods into a unique style with a coordinated color palette that works with today"s interiors. Price points are accessible to attract a stylish and design driven youth. The rugs featured in this collection all have a common trait; they all share high quality wool with the finest construction available. Both the tufted pile and the woven durries are created using New Zealand wool which is considered to be the most premium level wool that combines the maximum sheen with the highest longevity. Slight difference in color, size, or shape is consistent with the nature of a handmade product and does not reflect a defect in the product. Shedding is part of the natural wear-in process and is also a characteristic of fine wool rugs.
