Amy Butler Rugs
The Amy Butler Story
Amy Butler started sewing at the age of seven. Influenced by her mother and grandmother's love of arts and crafts, she went to art school and became obsessed with fashion. After experimenting with vintage fabrics for years, she teamed up with her husband to form a design studio in 1992.
Things have definitely grown since then. There is no textile that Amy Butler hasn't tackled with her signature patterns, including bedding, clothing, paper/stationary, wallpaper, luggage and of course, rugs. As of 2009, that range of products also includes handmade Amy Butler rugs, designed exclusively for Chandra Rugs and available at Lumens.
Why We Love Amy Butler Rugs
The Amy Butler aesthetic is bright, colorful and cheerful. Greatly influenced by vintage patterns, Butler offers a distinctly modern take on botanical, geometric and romantic themes. Thirteen of Amy Butler's favorite fabric patterns are granted additional--and literal--depth in her collection of area rugs for Chandra Rugs. Amy Butler rugs are each made out of hand-tufted and dyed New Zealand wool, the outline of its pattern hand-carved with special scissors. The result is touchably plush and brilliantly colored, the perfect foundation piece for modern living areas.
