The pedestrian masses use rugs to hide aged floors or broken tiles, but Linda Garriott's rugs demand attention as an art form. Each of the seven designs in her Signature Collection offer two standard color schemes (such as Passion/Dance, above, and Serene/Dance, in which green replaces red and other tones are more muted) and five standard sizes. Custom colors and sizing are available, too. The rugs are made in India of 100 percent New Zealand worsted wool, and are certified not to have used illegal child labor.-- HEIDI ROSE LAMIRANDE
Rugs start at $30 per square foot and can be purchased at the studio showroom in Medford or by calling 781-391-7649. lindagarriottdesign.com.
