They make fantastic luxury hospitality carpets. The new rugs designed by Karim Rashid for BDNY 2016 feature “a faceted pattern that is an abstract representation of the way we perceive the 3D world that we live in.

Design Gallery merged such a multi sensory immersion of warmth and coziness creating a stay for awhile experience in which I did!
