San Francisco Gets Tai Ping Outpost

Tai Ping, the 50-year-old master of custom carpets and rugs, has opened a showroom at the San Francisco Design Center, its fourth U.S. outpost. The newest collection is Empire (shown), which references Japanese kimonos and Ottoman paisleys. The five designs in the collection layer dull silk and flax linen over hand-tufted, semi-worsted wool to create refined patterns, each available in two colorways. In addition to its new collections, the Hong Kong-based company will work with clients to custom-design carpets and rugs. (212.979.2233, www.taipingcarpets.com)
