The Inspiration For Our Exclusive Rug Designs

Click here for our Main Web PageThe architects of the Prairie School designed many of the furniture and decorative pieces of their residential and business designs. In many instances the original client asked for specific designs for rugs and floorcoverings.

At Aspen Carpet Designs, all our rug designs are created - and owned - by us. We draw our inspiration from the great architects.

The Insider's List is an hour long program with host Julie Moran and business insiders as they reveal trade secrets for a variety of products and services. Aspen Carpet Designs was chosen to be featured on an hour long program about area rugs. The producers chose us for our unique niche in Prairie School design rugs. They talked to us about how our clients can customize high quality rugs via the internet. An interview with us in our studio and an interview with a client who chose Aspen Carpet Designs to design custom area rugs for his original Walter Burley Griffin designed Prairie School style home are featured in our segment of the show. Several rugs were filmed for the show.

Dana-Thomas RugThe Dana-Thomas House Foundation in Springfield, IL chose Aspen Carpet Designs to design rugs for exclusive sale by the Foundation. The first rugs are available through the Dana-Thomas House Foundation gift shop. Profits from the sale of these rugs go towards the maintenance and education programs related to the Prairie School styled Dana-Thomas house. Aspen Carpet Designs is honored to be chosen to design the Prairie School style rugs for this important home organization.

Because of the simple clean lines of the Prairie and Usonian style furniture, Oriental and Persian carpets seemed "too busy" when laid in the Prairie rooms. We have created designs to beautifully complement the Prairie or Usonian look. And you can now have these exclusive designs in your home or office for less than the cost of high quality Oriental and Persian rugs.

Our rugs are hand-tufted and hand-knotted wool rugs, as well as, hand-inlay and sculpted designs. For those looking to re-create the original look and style of Prairie/Usonian rugs, our hand-tufted and hand-knotted rugs are made of 100% wool.

We have rugs in Bungalows, Craftsman, Arts & Crafts, Contemporary, Traditional, New style Prairie, and Joseph Eichler homes. Our clients buy our rugs to complement Craftsman, Greene & Greene, Stickley, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and Mission style furniture and interiors.
