Creative Matters has opted to expand its space at the New York International Carpet Show (NYICS).

Among the new pieces Creative Matters will be showing is one that if it were a painting would still be wet — the first copy is still being produced. What we’re showing here is the artwork.

The rug is a “painterly riff,” as Creative Matters’ Carol Sebert put it, on the urban streetscape, as seen from above. (Quality: 100 knot, 4mm cut pile, 100% hand-spun Tibetan wool and Chinese silk.)

The rug is a product of the company’s “art day” exercise, when everything but art comes to a stop at the company, and everyone does art – because, well, at Creative Matters, creative matters.

NYICS will take place at the 7W building in Manhattan, September 9-11, 2012. For further information, contact [email protected].
