NEW YORK CITY — October 24, 2022 — Schumacher, the venerable American design house, announces the launch of its in-house designed rug program, the first since the 1960s. The initial collection consists of 13 stylish patterns, many inspired by Schumacher’s most beloved fabric and wallpaper designs. All will be stocked, ready-to-ship, and available in multiple standard sizes with the goal of providing near-instant gratification for designers and their clients.
The rugs are woven by female artisans through a program called Women’s Weavers, which helps women in rural India learn the art of weaving, giving them the opportunity to help support their families.
Stocked sizes will include 5×7, 6×9, 8×10, 9×12 and 10×14 as well as runners, and range from eco-friendly indoor/outdoor to jute to flatweaves to hand-knotted styles. They will be available to design professionals through schumacher.com and Schumacher showrooms. More rug designs will be introduced in Spring 2023.
“Everyone knows Schumacher for its exceptional fabrics, wallpapers and trims and it’s a thrill to be able to continue to expand our product line. In the last few years, we’ve added bedding, accessories, and furniture to our portfolio and now we have this sensational rug collection. Running through all of it is our singular passion for design, style and quality”, says Dara Caponigro, Schumacher’s creative director.
