Custom

Craftsmanship

“It is our goal at Fort Street Studio to create a unique and special product for all our clients. Because of this, we have made it possible for many of our designs to be custom sized and shaped (round, oval, and irregularly edged), extra large, or custom colored to meet the needs of a particular project. We invite you to contact our showrooms to discuss how we can work together to create a bespoke carpet for your project.”

– Founders and Co-Creative Directors, Brad Davis and Janis Provisor.

The Customization Process

Custom Color

One of the strengths of the Fort Street Studio portfolio is the understanding of color relationships, resulting in the unexpected color combinations used in each design. Although each carpet design has its own standard colorway, our art studio understands that many projects have their own custom color needs, and are able to tailor existing designs for specific color palettes.

For this project, this glamorous and ebullient designer approached Fort Street Studio with a specific color palette. He was looking for a saturated, dramatic carpet to make an impact alongside luxurious upholstery and pillows in a well-loved orange hue. Instead of selecting yarn poms, the interior designer gave Fort Street Studio’s art studio a selection of fabrics, from which the custom palette was composed. After mocking up a rendering,  a strike-off was created so the designer and client could give final color approval, and the carpet was woven and installed.

Custom Size

Designers are often subjected to architectural anomalies they must decorate around, and Fort Street Studio can help by creating custom sized rugs to fit any sized room.

In this Chelsea client’s study, one wall jutted at an angle creating an uneven parallelogram-shaped room. The study was small and the client did not want a carpet to butt up against the furniture. This firm came to us looking for a soft texture underfoot that still had some visual interest, and our SQ design seemed to be the perfect fit. Yet, when Fort Street Studio rendered the floorplan, the designer realized a rectangular rug would not work – an awkward triangle was created between the angled wall and carpet’s edge. A circular rug, however, would camouflage the angled wall, the edge would not run into the furniture, and the jagged “river” down the middle of the SQ design counterbalanced the room so its unique geometry appeared less severe. This custom shape provided a unique solution to the designer’s challenge, with which the client was quite pleased.

The Customization Process

The customization process begins with conversations between Fort Street Studio, the interior designer, and client to best understand the direction and needs of the project. For custom color, color-correct renderings are created based on colors provided by the designer in the form of color swatches, fabrics, etc. After selection of a rendering, a 1’x1’ sample representing the custom color is woven for final approval. For custom size or shape, clients are encouraged to provide floorplans, and a rendering of the design is presented indicating how the design will be scaled or repeated.

With the work and individual attention involved, custom sized and custom color orders are each charged a 10% fee. Please know Fort Street Studio will not present any samples or renderings that we feel do not meet the expectations of the client or our design standards.
