Introducing the Parlor

Carpets created through collaboration and unapologetic imagination

Talented designers across North and South America allowed their unbridled creativity to transpose from four inky sketches into twelve, one of a kind Axminster carpets.

Woven in our 80% wool, 20% nylon yarn blend, carpets from the Parlor collection offer customers the best combination of performance, longevity and luxury underfoot.

Based on the Exquisite Corpse game, invented by Surrealist artists in the 1920s, our designers released their unconscious imagination as they filled in one-fourth of a masterpiece before leaving half an inch exposed and shipping the game to the next player.

After the fourths were filled, these black and white sketches were photographed. Each digital file was distributed to a different group of designers to be translated into colorfully woven Axminster carpet.

The result of this exercise was better than any of us could have hoped for, ensuing unique Axminster designs with surprisingly linear transitions and glowing neon hues used to juxtapose moody velvet textures, perfect for casinos and public spaces.

Inspired by a space defined by community, The Parlor depends entirely on successful collaboration. This can be felt through patterns that call us to our local watering hole and remind us of the intimate social spaces occupied by literature and art’s greats.
