Liza Phillips

I met Liza a few years ago at ICFF and thought she had a brilliant idea: small individual rugs for your stairs. Maybe you've seen things similar in the past, but the rich beauty of Phillips's rugs are really outstanding. From her site: "Our hand-knotted rugs are made by Tibetans in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. The wool is rich in lanolin oil, which is important both for the absorbtion of the dyes as well as the plush texture for which Tibetan rugs are famous worldwide. Our manufacturers hand spin their wool and use traditional vegetable dyes or eco-friendly Swiss Ciba colors." Phillips comes by her excellent taste naturally, her grandfather was Duncan Phillips, the art collector and founder of Washington's Phillip's Collection. A great idea really well done.
