Jamie Stern Furniture, Carpet & Leather Launches 3rd Annual Rug Design Contest for Interior Designers and Architects

NEW YORK, N.Y. (June 1, 2022) — Jamie Stern Furniture, Carpet & Leather is excited to announce their 3rd Annual Rug Design Contest. Beginning on June 1st, Jamie Stern is calling on all interior designers to submit an original design for the chance to win a custom wool rug.

During the first two years of the contest, Jamie Stern received over 350 submissions from designers around the country. Some of these designs drew inspiration from nature while others were influenced by urban living. Some featured intricate geometric patterns while others were free-flowing and abstract. Designs came in that were drawn by hand with a pencil while others were created in Photoshop. “The unique expressions of creativity, imagination and artistry on display were truly impressive!” said President & CEO Jamie Stern.

For the 3rd Annual Jamie Stern Rug Design Contest, a Grand Prize winner from each of the four regions – Northeast, Southeast, Midwest and Western – will be selected by an all-new panel of esteemed judges and have their designs turned into beautiful 5×7 area rugs made of 100% New Zealand wool. The judges, all of whom are interior designers themselves, include: John Ambrose, a Design Director for Gensler, Tom Segal, the founder and Principal of Kaufman Segal Design and Patricia Lopez, the Principal of Baskervill.

In addition, eight runners-up will be selected and receive a 3×5 mini-rug of their work.

The deadline for entries is midnight of Friday, July 1st. For inspiration and a look at last year’s winners, and for more information on the Jamie Stern Rug Design Contest, please visit: https://info.jamiesterndesign.com/rug-design-contest-2022.
