mar a mar collection @ decorative carpets

we just got back from one of our favorite local vendors, decorative carpets, whose delightful third generation carpet-maker-in-chief, sara sugarman, hosted a party tonight to celebrate the addition of the new mar a mar carpet collection to decorative carpets' already extensive inventory of original carpet designs. the collection is full of saturated colors and exuberant ethnically-inspired patterns, and is completely, 1000% right up maison21's color lovin' alley.  available in both flatweave and tufted, the collection knocked our socks off, and we can't wait to have a client brave enough to let us use one of the patterns in their home. the fact that the collection is very well priced will certainly help our clients get the courage up to go bold with one of the deliciously colorful designs- m21 will make it work, k?

using my big head as scale comparison for the big pattern of the hand-tufted version 'palmerale'- so much prettier in person than the photo suggests (the carpet, not my big head).

ps= for more 'mar a mar' go here!

Love those hand tufted carpets! That'd be one great addition to my otherwise rather restrained colour palette. Love from London xo
