Weaving a Spell

Ben Soleimani, whose family has been in the rug business for four generations, is continuing his collaboration with Restoration Hardware, where he is now the company’s full-time rug designer and collector. The new items will debut online in April as part of the RH spring collection. Soleimani and Restoration Hardware first partnered on a 400-rug collection in 2011, when he was working at the Los Angeles branch of his London-based family’s company, Mansour, but this latest effort will introduce more than 3,500 new designs to the RH portfolio, in addition to a selection of vintage rugs curated by the designer. Soleimani personally oversaw the restoration of many of the vintage rugs, which include Turkish hand-knotted wool designs from the 1940s and 1950s.

Whether vintage or contemporary, the majority of Soleimani’s rugs in the spring collection adhere to a neutral palette of olive greens, grays, and blues, focus on abstract patterns, and unite natural fibers with traditional hand-weaving techniques. The vintage rugs begin at $2,000, and the contemporary designs start at $1,095. (www.rh.com)
