Design professionals are always looking for the new and exciting in products, services and vendors. With that in mind I set out on a quest last week to find some unusual floor covering. I visited a dozen showrooms & ateliers, and found a handful of rugs I think are industry standouts.
The Soho of my youth has changed from bohemian artist colony to cobblestone’d Rodeo Drive, and seeing as I personally can’t afford to shop at Chanel, I don’t often find myself there. That said, last week an acquaintance told me about ALT for Living – a showroom on Greene Street that had somehow escaped my radar. Yesterday I ventured south to meet Analisse Taft, ALT for Living‘s owner/curator, and to see her collection. It turned out to be a very exciting and worthwhile trip.
