We’ve just got back from a fantastic trip to New York where we exhibited our rugs at the Architectural Digest Show. It was an inspiring show and it was amazing to meet so many Sonya Winner rug enthusiasts Stateside! The icing on the cake was receiving the award for ‘Best Flooring and Floor Covering’ from the American Society of Interior Designers.
Here’s a close up of our gorgeous award (now taking pride of place in our london studio) and Sonya collecting it from the ASID judges…
Another highlight of our trip to New York was our visit to the British Consulate where we presented a Prism Pastel rug to Danny Lopez the British Consul-General to be permanently displayed in the Consulate residence. We were blown away by how well the palette of Prism Pastel fitted into the space!
We look forward to another successful show in the Big Apple next year!

For the second year running we were selected to exhibit at Tent London as part of the London Design Festival. Yet again we were overwhelmed by the positive response we got and were particularly delighted that our new designs were featured in several publications and blogs including the Contemporist and the Evening Standard, where we were named 'Best in Show' in article by Barbara Chandler.
RIBA produced a video round-up, beautifully capturing the creative energy of Tent. We were honored to be featured first! Here we are making the finishing touches to our stand....
