Design Seen: Fort Street Studio

<< Back to Home & Style, January 2014

New York City
Known for its contemporary rugs, which often resemble artistic wall hangings, Fort Street Studio has launched its finest collection of floor coverings yet. The Luxe series (from $234 per square foot), introduced in the fall, marries a higher knot count (150 knots per square inch) and metallic Soumak flat weaving to create five new patterns. Toll (shown) incorporates Dandong silk cut pile, resulting in a rug of plush textures and eye-catching sheen.
