Carpet Crash Course

Recently I had the opportunity to be interviewed by The Chicago Tribune with my cousin Ashley — STARK’s Senior Vice President of Design — about the company’s evolution and our plans for the future. Check out the article here for advice, tips, and to learn about some exciting new developments in the world of STARK!

 

STARK celebrates publication of latest book

On November 17th, my family hosted a party at our D&D Building showroom to mark the publication of our new book, Decorating with Carpets: The STARK Tradition.

They transcribed my speech 🙂

“As you will see in the book, carpets produced by STARK demonstrate decorating trends at their highest level. And while the photography makes this an incredible coffee table book (perfect for holiday gifts!) Decorating with Carpets is much more—it’s really a resource guide and delves into types of carpets from Aubusson to Axminster and beyond, and explores the most popular patterns and textures and how they are used in various rooms in the home.”

We toasted the new book with guests Iris Apfel, Michael Boodro, Robert Rufino, Cynthia Frank, Orli Ben-Dor, Kate Kelly Smith, Katie Brockman, Jim Aman and John Meeks, Juan Montoya, Kevin Lichten, Alex Papachristidis, David Duncan, Ellie Cullman, Geoffrey Bradfield, Roric Tobin, Noel Jeffrey, Trisha Reger, Barry Goralnick, Alyssa Kapito, Vivian Muller, Sherrill Canet, Alberto Villalobos, Mercedes Desio, Joshua Greene, Richard McGeehan, Michael Simon, Charles Pavarini, Kendell Cronstrom, and Amy Vermillion.
