Custom Cool Bespoke Rugs

I'm always on the lookout for custom rug options. I bookmarked Custom Cool a while back after seeing their store featured in a fall issue of Elle Decor, but for whatever reason I didn't delve into their site until recently. After hundreds of clicks, I'm now very well acquainted with their creations and I couldn't be more excited about this new resource.

Here an interior shot of their adorable store in the Hamptons...

As you might have surmised from their name, Custom Cool creates custom rugs, pillows, and other accessories for the home. Their hand-woven rugs and kilims are made with top-notch materials like silk, Pashmina, Linen, Nettle, and New Zealand and Himalayan wool. And best of all, they amazing designs. There are ikats, geometrics, florals, and fresh abstracts...and all can be ordered in any color combination. My mind is spinning after seeing just a fraction of the gorgeous options...

This photo was taken in Nepal, where some of the rugs are made. This fab design is called Opaque...

And here are some of my other favorites from the site (you will see them as you click through the different color palettes)...

 This photo is from a Facebook album of shots for their catalog. That chair is so cool, isn't it?

Here are a few of the exquisite, handmade Custom Cool cushions...

Whew, lots to look at and believe it or not, that's only a fraction of what you can see on the Custom Cool site! 

What do you think of Custom Cool's creations? I really like their designs and the whole concept of being able to customize every facet of a rug. Well-made rugs are expensive so you might as well get exactly what you want and need! I also appreciate that Custom Cool is GoodWeave certified (i.e. no child labor is used). 

The only slight downside to CC is the price point and the lead time. The prices are not out of line though, because they reflect the premium materials and expert craftsmanship that make each piece so special. In the long run, the higher level of quality and durability will offset the initial cost. Also, the long production/delivery schedule (2-3 months) is very typical for custom, handmade rugs. So if you have the budget and a bit of patience, definitely consider using Custom Cool. To me, they are a much needed alternative to Madeleine Weinrib and I'm excited to have them as a resource!
