Rugs to Covet: Madeline Weinrib

Approximately four years ago I walked into a small design shop in San Francisco and has been positively bowled over with a pink carpet with silver medallions. It seemed to encompass everything I loved about design, such as a few paradoxes. It was concurrently geometric and natural, lively and elegant, inspired by ancient design and yet completely modern.

Thus began my love affair with the textiles and rugs of Madeline Wienrib. The granddaughter of ABC Carpet & Home creator Max Weinrib, Madeline is famous for layouts inspired by the patterns of India, Morocco and Asia. Until she does a line for Target (a girl can dream) she will stay very, very high on my covet list.

The chenille Mandala carpet with metallic silver accents. The carpet that started it all.

Yvonne McFadden LLC

The cotton Mandala carpet in Steel. Perhaps it doesn’t take your breath away, but it is definitely marriage material.

Vanessa De Vargas

The cotton Brooke carpet in Chestnut. A modern classic.

Hot Pink Brooke

The Hot Pink Brooke. Similar, but way hotter.

Niche Interiors

The Brooke carpet in Tibetan wool. Kind of makes you want to get naked and roll around.

Beckwith Interiors

The Otto carpet in Grape. Inside this room it is the focal point, but it also lends itself to layering and lots of rich design.

Zoe Feldman Design, Inc..

A runner in wool. This design can no longer be accessible, but it is gorgeous to look at.

Pink Suzi Tibetan Wool Rug

The Pink Suzi. Oh. My. God. I wish you can feel it. It’s like walking on the rear of a very small lamb fed just strawberries and cream.

Did I mention that she makes evening bags? You know, in case you want one to match your amazing Tibetan wool runner.
