In more ways than one, two worlds collide as celebrated fashion designer Prabal Gurung brings his signature style to his collection with Rugs USA—his first foray into home décor. Known for his iconic work on the runway, he delivers the elevated style and exceptional craftsmanship that have become the very hallmarks of his work to these stunning rugs. Through his use of color, impeccable quality, and motifs that marry what he describes as “the mysticism of Nepal with the pragmatism of New York,” this exclusive collection is designed to set your space apart.
Prabal Gurung’s use of color is nothing short of mesmerizing. While many of the colors in these designs are bold, they are expertly balanced to create looks that are both daring and sensible. And if neutrals and subtlety are more your style, Gurung made sure to include some toned-down hues, too. From the vibrant jewel tones of the Bagmati Washable Rug to the natural tendencies of the Mustang Handwoven Jute Rug, this collection ensures there is a piece to suit every space.
Renowned for his dedication to quality, Prabal Gurung ensured his west-meets-east collection with Rugs USA was no exception. Each piece is crafted with meticulous attention to detail using exceptional materials that deliver a luxe look and feel. Many of these exquisite rugs are made of wool, a high-quality natural fiber known for its durability, softness, and natural beauty. Of course, because Gurung designs with his customers’ unique lives and needs in mind, he also included some styles that are expertly constructed of machine-washable materials. Naturally, these provide all the practicality your home may need without sacrificing any of Gurung’s elevated style. The difference in these rugs is palpable. Add one to your space to see just what we mean.
The Collaging of Cultures
Each design in this collection is a stunning work of art, exuding heart and optimism that will bring your space to life—and so much of that comes from the designer’s lived experience and overarching message. Born in Singapore, raised in Nepal, and now a resident of New York City itself, Prabal Gurung is a bit of a citizen of the world. “What I’ve realized is: the more you see different things, the more you taste different food, the more you see different colors, textures, cultures, languages, you really understand, you start seeing each other—the humanity of it all,” he shared. “It’s my personal experience, and I just wanted to bring those two worlds here and the way I live.” And when it comes to those two worlds, he’s referring specifically to Nepal and New York City—the places nearest to his heart.
In fact, his inspiration for the collection came from these places and developed into a theme of the West meeting the East. “What I wanted to do was I wanted to play with these two ideas: my homeland, Nepal, and my home where I found myself, New York, and bring those two together,” he explained. It’s evident throughout the entire collection from the Sunsari Washable Rug to the Greenwich Abstract Wool Rug and everything in between.
Versatile, Fashion-Forward Designs
Due to this west-meets-east approach, the extraordinary range of styles in his collection is truly astounding. You’ll find contemporary takes like Brooklyn Tasseled Wool Rug or the Tribeca Washable Rug—inspired by New York in every way (including their names)! You’ll also find historic motifs and bohemian chic styles that tell a more lived-in story—pieces like the Terai Wool Rug, for instance. Gurung designed this versatile collection with a variety of stories in mind, so there’s truly a rug to complement every unique aesthetic, no matter what it may be.
Artistry in Every Stitch
Just like Prabal Gurung’s ready-to-wear designs, these rugs were expertly crafted. Many of them feature tufted constructions or were woven using the best techniques, further speaking to the artistry and intention behind each piece. Both visually stunning and designed to last, the rugs in the Prabal Gurung x Rugs USA collection will set your space apart.
