Whether it’s an element of comfort, an artistic statement or a functional feature, carpeting is often a focal point around which interior designers create a room. And to get hip to the latest rug designs, professionals head to the New York International Carpet Show (NYICS). We spoke with a few rug designers who will showcase their latest rugs and carpets at this year’s event. We got an idea of what you might expect to see popping up in homes soon, and the focus is on versatility, subtle colors, detailed images and simple customization.
The article breaks down the carpets being shown at NYICS into several categories, including Versatilty, Subtle Colors, Detailed Designs and writing about Lapchi, Simply Customizable:
Some interior designers and homeowners are finding their way to companies that create one-of-a-kind rugs by letting homeowners pick their own color mixes, such as Lapchi Handwoven Carpets. “The perfect rug for a client is a rug that is made specifically for them,” Lani Baker of Lapchi says.
Lapchi’s 2016 line will elaborate on its 2015 designs in a muted color palette of silvers and grays, along with aubergine and green from natural and simple dyes. Two of the company’s designs are pictured at left and below.
Lapchi’s rugs are created using primarily the traditional Nepalese method. But Baker says that because Nepal has just suffered major natural disasters, the company is giving the Nepal staff time to be with family and help with relief efforts. “What we will show during NYICS will be a return to a decorative formality in our work using simple color mixes that will be easy to customize,” she says.

We recently previewed two new vibrant, compelling collections of Lapchi handmade carpets at the New York International Carpet Show (NYICS) with the theme of “New Work | New York.” We’ll be posting photos of our space at NYICS, but in the meantime you can view photos and renderings of the new 2014 Lapchi Collection.
The 2014 collection of Lapchi carpet designs is based on ancient Japanese aesthetics. A contemporary essay on space and form, these abstract, organic and geometric patterns were shown in 18 room size rugs.
Eight new colorways from Texere, a collection of abstract rugs in rich variegated textures all hand-knotted in Lahore, counterpoint the Lapchi Collection.
