“Wait a minute…is that a rug or a piece of art?!” “Well, it’s
both,” says Soho Design House Founder Jacob Rahman, who
brings together artists and artisans from around the globe to
weave one-of-a-kind art rugs that serve as high-end, heirloom
pieces to discerning collectors and novice art lovers alike. The
company’s luxury hand-knotted portfolio features designs by
renowned artists and creative rising stars in a slew of diverse
styles including street art, calligraphy, surrealism, illustration
and photorealism, among many others. On average, each rug
takes up to 3-6 months to complete, depending on the size,
design and color scheme, and the pricetag typically runs in the
low 5 figures. “We create each piece to order and no two are
ever the same,” says Rahman; SohoDH.com.
