Nanimarquina and Switch Modern are having a summer 20% off sale thru July 31 on select rug styles that are in the process of being discontinued including Antique in all colorways and sizes, Eduardo Chillida’s Manos 1995, Losanges III designed by Ronan + Erwan Bouroullec, and Rabari 3 and Rabari 4 designed by Nipa Doshi + Jonathan Levien. The price noted for each style and size represents a 20% discount while quantities last. As always, free shipping applies to all Nanimarquina rug purchases. Similarly, if you are located outside of Georgia, there is no sales tax. Need to see a physical example in person? Switch Modern is happy to arrange for a sample of any of Nanimarquina rug to be sent to you.


Two aspects of the Antique rug collection really stand out… its vintage look coupled with the innovative artisan technique that was especially created to enable the production of this rug.  As its name suggests, the design was inspired by antique rugs – its neutral colors and floral patterns will add warmth to any room. The hand-knotted sumac weaving technique used in this collection is the result of countless hours of work underscored by the imagination of its Indian weavers. Knot by knot, a thin braid is created that provides each rug’s distressed look. Composed of 100% hand-woven New Zealand wool. Antique is available in three colorways – Antique 1, Antique 2, and Antique 3 – each version is available in two sizes.


With their Losanges collection, the Bouroullec brothers continue their study of simplicity and elegance, reinterpreting the traditional Persian rug by using ancient kilim techniques. Technically complex, the Losanges collection requires great skill due to its sophisticated combination of colors within its atypical geometrical rhombic form. In addition to the plethora of handcraft techniques involved, the Afghan wool used in Losanges is also spun by hand in order to achieve the sophisticated color hues that ultimately make each rhombus different and each rug unique.


Celebrating 20th century artist Eduardo Chillida’s ouevre, Nanimarquina has created a rug collection based upon a chronological selection of his artist’s work – Figura Humana (1948), Dibujo Tinta (1957), and Collage (1966) – pieces that reflect the gestation process of his renowned sculpture, Peine del Viento, located in San Sebastián. The collection also includes two depictions of his much celebrated depictions of hands – Mano and Manos from the 1990s, as well as Gravitación from 1993 and 1994. Noted here is Manos 1995. This hand-knotted rug is composed of 100% hand-spun New Zealand wool.

Rabari is an outstanding design – indeed, each becomes a canvas on which Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien have designed a refined combination of rhythms with a unique graphic sensuality. According to Levien, “We decided to create a series of rugs that evoke the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India. We wanted our collection for nanimarquina to reference the unfinished embroideries like studies of different techniques in progress, as they gradually emerge over time. The spontaneous compositions of the rugs embody the serendipity and freedom to improvise inherent in each step of a handmade piece. Joyful, irreverent and unique.” Each Rabari rug is composed of hand-knotted, hand-woven 100% New Zealand wool.
