Right now, we are working with a couple of clients that are in need of rugs for kiddos, pets and high traffic areas. Dhurrie’s are a perfect solution. These flat woven cotton or wool rugs have rich history that begins in regions such as Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, and Tibet. Because of their tight weave and low pile, these are durable solutions for any space. Here are a few of our favorites:
Graphic Suzani-Inspired Dhurrie
Ikea’s Stockholm Rand Flat Weave Rug
The Flock Flatweave Dhurrie Rug by Thomas Paul
Anthropologie's Diamond Jungle Dhurrie
Recently, we came across a killer new blog by writer Lizzie Garrett. She hand picks women who embody that undefinable level of cool born of living by their own rules–a mantra we continually subscribe to.
Here are a few of our favorite inspiring women who do and did their own thing:

“We went on a weekend drive, after a show I was in at the time. We were on a motorcycle, and there was a carload of friends behind us. It was freezing ass cold. We stopped for a bite to eat, and one of the guys said, ‘Steve, why don’t you let Neile ride with us? I can ride with you. It’s too cold.’ And I said, ‘No, I think I’m just gonna stay on the bike.’ Steve told me later, ‘That’s the moment I fell in love with you.’ “—Neile Adams

“Wes [Anderson] understands the dilemma, that when women become too forceful, they get accused of being masculine. If they state their opinions, or if they assert themselves, they won’t be thought of as lovable or feminine.”—Anjelica Huston

“When I was nine or 10, I wasn’t pretty anymore–which is a big advantage. It must be a nightmare to be a beautiful teenager. I got this strange kind of androgyny. I was everything girls don’t want to be—incredibly tall, incredibly thin, and unimpressive. For years it’s still been possible to hide as a sexual being.”—Tilda Swinton

When running uptown, downtown, and around town all day shopping for clients, we need solid fuel to keep us going. Right now, there is no better nourishment than Torrisi’s turkey sandwiches. Owner/chefs Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi’s (formerly of the posh Café Boulud) house roasted turkey is sliced thick and topped with delightfully spicy harissa sauce. We prefer ours with a heaping bowl of fresh ricotta on the side.
