The Chairman | Carpet Design Awards Prelude

By: Michael Christie

This is a truncated version of the article ‘The Chairman’ which appears in its entirety in Rug Insider Winter 2018 | The Nepal Issue, out to subscribers now. To subscribe: Click here!

The winners of the 2018 DOMOTEX Carpet Design Awards (CDAs) will be announced on Saturday, January 13, 2018 in Hannover, Germany. Editor Michael Christie spoke with the Chairman of this year’s Jury, Michael Mandapati — founder of Warp & Weft — about his background, what makes a ‘great carpet’, and how it feels to be judging the work of others.

Michael Christie (RI:) Firstly, I want to say congratulations on being chosen as the Chairman of the Jury this year.

Michael Mandapati (MM): You know Michael… well first, thank you, but as I was saying, when they [the organizers of the Carpet Design Awards which includes DOMOTEX as well as COVER Magazine] first emailed to see if I was interested I thought to myself: ‘Wooooo. What am I getting myself into?’

RI: From my perspective you’re getting yourself into a rare opportunity to award internationally recognized accolades. Obviously you are not going to be able to please everyone with your selections, but then again, is not that distinction what separates great carpets from the crowd? But before you answer that, let’s talk a bit about Michael Mandapati and his background. Most people know you as a maker of very refined Nepali-Tibetan carpets via your firm Warp & Weft, but that’s not where you started is it?

MM: I’ve only ever been in the carpet business. Starting in 1988 while I was still in India and continuing once I moved to the United States in 1989. I was working for other companies of course, Eastern Exports in India, Pasargad and ABC Carpet once I was in the US, but I always new in my heart I would do my own thing. I remember buying a book, ‘The Oriental Carpet’ by P.R.J. Ford and early in the book the author is describing how carpets are made. The warp and the weft… . This is the simplest, truest form, the bones and structure of a carpet. I said ‘That’s it!’ and that’s how ‘Warp & Weft’ got it’s name.

ck nourison1

SADDLE BROOK, NJ — Leading floor covering and home accents manufacturer Nourison will introduce new Calvin Klein area rug collections during Atlanta and Las Vegas markets this January.

The area rugs will debut with a fresh look, focusing on primary colors in stripes, bold solids and juxtaposition of color, taking inspiration from Raf Simons, Chief Creative Officer of Calvin Klein, and the look of the new Calvin Klein Madison Avenue flagship designed in collaboration with artist Sterling Ruby.

There are five new area rug collections named after U.S. cities, and designs named after city districts: Nashville wool flat weave stripes, Brooklyn plush shag rugs, LA densely tufted microfiber cut pile rugs in vibrant colors, San Diego cotton flat weave stripes, and Seattle multi-use rugs. Nashville’s designs, 12 South, Music Row, Five Points and SOBRO feature a tribute to America, inspired by a variance in flag designs. Brooklyn’s Greenpoint and LA’s Echo Park rugs create a canvas of saturated color, with a silky, luxurious feel. San Diego’s La Jolla design is inspired by the California sky, with the horizon line over the Pacific. The local outdoors/wilderness area of Seattle’s Pike Place inspires its design.
