Kouhi Line of Flatwoven Rugs just in time for summer and bare feet. You’ll want to walk on these beautiful carpets by the New England Collection. Customized to your requirements and runners available. necrugs.com.
Zig Zag Fabric by Jane Shelton. I guess I’m in a zig zag frame of mind. Maybe I’m taking a break from florals and stripes. What I love about this print is that it has movement and it’s 100% cotton. Available to the trade only. For more information, janeshelton.com.
