“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.
