|An Interior Shot of Verde Home|
To give you a little background, Verde Home is an interiors store located just off of Brady Avenue on the Westside. They carry a wonderful selection of furnishings, art, accessories, and floor coverings. The designs for the runners that we are having made are part of a collection they have created with Michel Boyd. The designs are more transitional, but can really work in any space by chaning the scale or color palette.
|Samples of Patterns from the Collection|
When designing a custom rug, you get to select your colors from hundreds of different tufts (and if for some reason the perfect colored tuft doesn't exist, they can custom match). Next is the choice of materials. Verde Home offers both wool and bamboo silk, which is incredibly soft and more durable that regular silk. Once all of your selections have been made, Verde Home creates a scale rendering for you. From there, you can either choose to have a sample made, or jump straight into the custom piece.
|Selecting Tufts for One of Our Orders|
Verde Home works with a factory in India, where all of the custom pieces are hand loomed. Because each piece is hand loomed by a series of weavers, it can take roughly 10-14 weeks for a completed product. Our first batch of runners is almost complete, and we had the nice surprise of seeing a progress photo a few days ago! We cannot wait to see the final products!!!
