Carpet Design Awards 2021 Winners

May 25, 2021

Take a look at the nine winning designs of 2021

Though COVID-19 meant that DOMOTEX Hannover could not take place as usual, there was no doubt among the organisers that the Carpet Design Awards, presented in partnership with COVER and HALI magazines, had to go ahead. An annual industry highlight, the competition celebrates original design, remarkable craftsmanship and innovation, particularly in the field of sustainability. The impossibility of a physical fair meant that any eligible handmade rug company could enter the awards from anywhere in the world, and more than 140 companies did. The awards were thus more competitive than ever and winning this year must be considered a special honour.

The winners were chosen by a jury consisting of leading experts from the design and carpet industry led by Graham Head, the former President and Vice Chair of ABC Carpet & Home. He was assisted by award-winning interior designer Audrey Carden, Irène Ribeiro, Collection Manager of the Rugs Division at etoffe.com, Uwe Heublein, Product Manager for Carpets at Segmüller, and Creative Director for Christian Lacroix Maison Sacha Walckhoff. As circumstances dictated that the judging be carried out remotely, this year arguably places more emphasis on design than previous years. However, only companies known to produce quality work were permitted to enter, ensuring the standard of the craftsmanship.
