In the March 2010 issue of American Vogue with Tina Fey on the cover, Hamish Bowles featured the London home of Suzanne Sharp, the designer of the Sellarsbrook Blue rug that is now on our living room floor. The interview is insightful: Sharp started The Rug Company with her husband Christopher. When they were living in Riyadh (Christopher was working in film), they started collecting Afghan rugs from souks. When they finally returned to London, they opened a store and started selling the rugs. This led to the production of their own rugs by Nepalese weavers. They also invited top decorators in London and when that proved to be a success, they invited fashion designers as well.
Below is a photo of the Sellarsbrook Blue rug in the Sharp's study.
