When Marco Polo traveled through China in the 13th century, he called his discoveries the marvels of the world. Some of his most vivid descriptions are of the luxurious rugs he admired, “worked in silk and gold, noble and very rich.”
Things haven’t changed. Gorgeous heirloom rugs are still coveted works of art. What HAS changed is the way we live. Now rugs must endure the rigors of active families and accident-prone pets, all the while looking like masterpieces.
That’s why we’ve chosen to create new-to-look-old rugs from the finest modern materials. We love this approach because these rugs look handed-down for generations but they will last for many more.
Our vintage-wash instant heirloom rugs are powerloomed of lustrous 100% viscose yarns. They have the well-worn look of a palace antique but don’t cost a kings’ ransom. Run your fingertips across the pile and you’ll feel a difference too. Supple, silky and soft on bare feet.
Our collection is meticulously dyed and dappled with distressed patterns for an aged patina. The muted tones have warmth and depth. The low-pile is inspired by hand-knotted heirlooms. And the machine woven ultra-soft organic viscose is made for everyday life.
Persian motifs are captured in our hand-knotted rugs. Crafted of 100% hand-spun bamboo viscose, considered one of the finest fibers on earth, these rugs harmonize perfectly with modern interiors in deep shades of slate, mocha and satiny silver.
Ancestral design meets 21st-century materials with our EZ Care rug collection. We purposefully make this grouping to withstand almost anything today’s homes and inhabitants can dish out.
The secret is face-to-face Wilton woven of 100% heat-set Courtron™ polypropylene. If you examined the pile under magnification you’d see an excess of one million points of yarn per square meter, making it feel as plush and indulgent as it is easy to maintain.
And last but not least, warm up the floorboards of that narrow hallway or the space between kitchen counter and island with one of our EZ-care runners. Timelessly pretty and supremely practical, they’re resilient enough to repel even red wine stains.
Vintage appeal made for modern living. See more of our room enhancing, vintage rugs.

Few things are as deliciously satisfying as slipping into a sumptuous bed in the wintertime. Okay, we admit it. Waking up in one is very high on the list too.
Luxury bedding triggers something elemental in the human body. Turning in requires you to turn off, tune out, and let go for a while.
And the colder months are the best time to elevate that experience with a master suite makeover. We recommend you start with the sheets.
Understatement is often the look on beds in five-star hotels; simplicity is king on those California Kings. But that doesn’t mean the picture is always punctuated with unembellished white sheets.
Our wide collection of ultra soft Resort Bedding was designed to give you the quality and caché of a 5-star hotel with plenty of variation in color, texture, detail and mix-and-matchability.
For example, subtle dobby stripes bring a sophisticated shimmer and opulent hand to our Resort Variegated Bedding. Paired with our Embroidered Stripe Resort Sheets and customized with your monogram, you’re all set for ten times 40 winks.
An elegant 600 thread count sateen finish only adds to the decadence of our tone-on-tone Resort Flourish Sheet Set. The embroidered design was inspired by a swatch of vintage wallpaper salvaged from a French chateau.
It’s not accidental that our best-selling sheets are some of the softest in the world. It’s thanks to our patented MicroCotton® process that spins long-staple cotton into the silkiest of weaves.
Layer on our allergy-free down comforter and pillows and you’ve made a bed that’s beautiful, breathable and blissfully soft against the skin.
Princess Isabella of France is said to be the first woman to assemble a bridal trousseau for her marriage to Richard II in 1396. Can you imagine what heirloom-worthy sheets lined that wedding chest? Perhaps a set embroidered with a classic quatrefoil like these.
Even if you don’t live like a queen every day, you can sleep like one every night. Makeover your master suite with your favorites from our luxurious Resort Bedding.
Then slip in, snuggle up and slumber off.
