The Carpet Cellar introduces two new series of floor coverings made of lush silks and warm wool

Inspired by architectonics and legendary architects such as Tadao Ando, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn, the Architectural series features hand knotted carpets in fine wool and soft silk. Highlighting the simplicity of modern design, the carpets come in hues of charcoal grey and beige with hints of blue. The other collection is the Jamewar carpet range inspired by traditional Jamewar shawls that have been popularised by Indian nobility and aristocracy.
