Announcing some exciting news regarding the new Menagerie Rug Collection! The new designs recently premiered in North Carolina’s High Point Market, and were also featured in a full-page story in Interior Design Magazine.

During the premier, visitors were invited to explore The Suites At Market Square and browse the full collection; it was a fun day! We were also grateful to be included in an issue of Interior Design Magazine, with a full-page article. “The result is stunning dimension and color variation,” the article said in regards to the collection.

The animal-inspired pieces in the Menagerie Collection combine the traditional elements of late Renaissance naturalistic design with a modern day graphic sensibility. As always, they’re handcrafted in New Moon’s true 100-knot quality.

Erika Kurtz, our lead designer and CEO, explains the conception of this collection. “Animals and naturalistic forms have been inspiration for hand-woven textiles and tapestries since the beginning,” Erika says. “These highly decorative scenes combine historical iconography in a contemporary layout.”

Some of the Menagerie rug designs include…

Khan, ebony: An ancient tiger comes to life in this playful design. Features Tibetan wool, Chinese silk, natural nettle fibers, and hues of gold, russet and bronze.

Menagerie, bohemia: This magical nature scene features tones of pewter, red, grey-blue, ebony, chocolate brown, soft gold, apricot, coral, dusty lavender, plum, forest green, lime green, teal and sky blue.

Gryphon: Elizabethan needlework comes to life in this fantasy. This mosaic-like design combines the aesthetics of the past and present to create a unique and vibrant piece.

Zephir, rainforest or jungle cool: A whimsical Deco jungle, home to a bevy of very happy monkeys. The heathered Tibetan wool background of “rainforest” features hues of cream, taupe, silvery-blue, rich lavender and muted teal, while the background of “jungle cool” features hues of grey-blue and blue.
