This “Tree Trunk” silk and wool rug was designed by Kelly Hohla of Jeffers Design Group
Custom Jute and wool area rug custom designed for Steven Volpe made its way into the Elle Decor Showhouse in San Francisco. See link below:
The Moroccan and Faux Bois rugs were specified by Caroline Edwards Interiors in Aspen. Congratulations Barbara and Maggi on your beautiful rooms.
Tuesday April 27th, Diane Saeks covers Brian Dittmar’s room at the SF Designer Showhouse.
Check it out, the area rug looks terrific.
The centerpiece of this room is a tone-on-tone custom designed rug (through Mark Nelson Designs in New York City), woven with the Auguste Rodin quote “Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely” in handwritten script lettering. Given the large scale of the words, they first appear as an abstract, contemporary pattern — but upon further inspection, the words will become clear.
I am finding that the wealthy are starting to release funds…I mean there’s only so long that you can tow the line of austerity. Let’s hope this continues!!

He was wonderful in explaining the process to me, answering my questions, sending samples for me to touch and feel, etc.
