Modern rugs bespoke design
Jennifer Manners is an American artist based in the UK who uses Himalayan wool, natural silk and bamboo silk as her mediums.
A former US TV news anchor who has lived all over the world, Jennifer attended St Martin’s College of Art after moving to London 15 years ago. First establishing herself in interior design, Jennifer switched focus to rug design after failing to find what she was looking for. Seeking out artisan weavers in Nepal, Jennifer’s rugs are carefully woven over a three-month period by artisans whose craft has been handed down through the generations. Each design tells a story and helps inform the mood of a room.
From her Chelsea garden studio, Jennifer offers a core collection of beautiful rugs that can be commissioned in standard or bespoke sizes. This range is being added to all the time, as new designs are transferred from page to loom. This range is then supplemented by seasonal collections encompassing natural and environmental, geometric and graphic, heritage and traditional estate designs.
Drawing upon over a decade’s experience of working in the residential, commercial and public sectors, Jennifer has the industry expertise to advise on colour, texture and materials to ensure the right kind of rug is created. Jennifer’s studio can also offer bespoke interior design solutions.
