What’s Underneath

The Fab Rugs That Turned a Houston-Built Company Into an Empire

BY // 03.15.16

Bright Scandinavian textiles from the mid-20th century inspired the latest rugs from Matt Camron Rugs & Tapestries. The Scandinavian Flatweave collection includes 20 patterns and hues that work well with both Scandinavian antiques and midcentury styles, says Sarah Tringhese, whose father, Matt Camron, founded the company 30 years ago in Houston; namesake showrooms in Dallas, Denver, Chicago and Washington, D.C., followed.

Matt Camron’s expert artisans in Afghanistan and Egypt hand-weave the kilims from 100 percent wool. Traditional kilims are often more muted, but these feature light yellows, blues and purples to complement current design and furniture trends. A typical 9’ x 12’ rug starts at $3,800 and takes 12 weeks to make.

“We have so much control over production that we can easily customize and quick-ship anything,” Tringhese says. “We can customize colors to paint chips or furniture fabrics, and do a rendering and a sample to show customers before production even begins.”
