Yabu Pushelberg - Modern Designer Rugs & Carpets | Warp & Weft

Glenn Pushelberg and George Yabu

Yabu Pushelberg designs places and products: immersive environments, compelling destinations, and considered goods. George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg founded the studio in 1980 with an emphasis on interior design and have since expanded the studio into a multidisciplinary practice that addresses multiple layers of human experience. With offices in New York and Toronto and a team of more than a hundred creatives and professionals, the studio specializes in sensibilities spanning buildings, interiors, landscapes, lighting, furniture, objects, and graphics with a focus that goes well beyond what things look like, to how they make people feel.


Yabu Pushelberg has designed two collections for Warp & Weft - TERRA and GRID.  

TERRA draws inspiration from the mesmerizing aerial views of our earth and embodies a dynamic interplay of movement, dimension, and serenity. Each pattern encapsulates the essence of diverse terrains and natural formations, offering a glimpse into the vast wonders of our planet. Warp & Weft’s creative team and skilled artisans translated the designer’s vision into finely hand-knotted rugs using hand-dyed wool and silk to evoke the texture and feel of a vintage textile.

GRID is inspired by the right angles and geometry of modern urban topography - the rigidity of city streets softened and simplified on a one-dimensional plane. Depth and interest are created through the use of tone and texture together with the deconstruction of the grid-like patterns. The intersection of right angles is refined by abstracting the grid; deleted lines and fragmented patterning, at times also pivoted on axis, create variants of the same theme. Inspired by flat-woven techniques, the rugs were conceived to celebrate the quality and integrity of the hand-woven process. Muted tonal colors paired with soft neutrals provide a palette that aspires to live comfortably among one's existing collection of furnishings and compliment one's life.  The collection overall presents a quiet, contemporary point of view through ordered compositions and thoughtful consideration of texture and line.
