New Rugs from Rodarte (California’s Coolest Sister Designers)

March 9, 2015

Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the cerebral sisters behind fashion label Rodarte, have collaborated with Frank Gehry, designed costumes for “Black Swan,” guest-edited magazines, and shown their work at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Their first foray into home goods, a new line of rugs for The Rug Company, is as decadent and mysteriously compelling as their fashion designs.
