Made in Massachusetts: The Merida Collection of Modern Natural Fiber Rugs Designed by Sylvie Johnson

Several of us at Remodelista grew up in Massachusetts and remember seeing the many-windowed abandoned factory buildings in the mill town of Fall River. So we were heartened to hear that the collection of natural fiber rugs we were admiring is produced in a revived Fall River textile mill. Merida, we learned, is a company with a conscience and a mandate to celebrate craft and ingenuity. Under CEO Catherine Connolly and art director Sylvie Johnson, Merida has been creating top-of-the-line, artisan...

Trending flooring styles that sell

For many buyers, flooring is an unexpectedly key factor in the choice of a home. Flooring can unify a space and make it stand out — or can draw unnecessary attention to itself and be a stumbling block to a sale. When preparing your next property for sale, flooring should be a focus, not an afterthought.

Kitchen of the Week: ‘A Secret Retreat’ Above a Violin Store

Designers often say that the best renovations come about after you’ve actually clocked some time living in a space, so that you can have a better understanding of how your home supports (or hinders) your daily routine. Architect Jack Tsai’s clients, a couple in their 60s, had 15 years to figure out what was wrong with their living quarters. The couple own a violin shop and had been living atop of it in a dark, rundown apartment for a decade and a half before they brought in Jack to reimagine it—...

Kyle Bunting’s Stunning Atlas Collection

In addition to suggesting a compendium of human knowledge, the term “Atlas” connotes formidable strength, the kind required to support the heavens, in fact, and the personage who had to bear this burden. The evocation of rugged masculinity is apt for the collaboration between master of hair-on-hide, Kyle Bunting, and famed photographer Douglas Friedman, who spent time together “shooting guns; talking about art, music, and Texas; shooting more guns; and drinking tequila.” Atlas ...

Second Time’s the Charm: ‘A Renovation of a Renovation’ in a Brooklyn Duplex

If you’ve ever gone house-hunting, you’re probably familiar with that feeling of ambivalence when confronted with a middling renovation by a developer. On the one hand, everything’s shiny and new and there’s no danger of finding a creepy doll in the attic; on the other hand, why does that bathroom door hit the sink when you open it? Rather than live with the architectural flaws of their developer-renovated duplex, one Brooklyn couple decided a redo of the redo was a must. The pair hired vonDALWI...

The best eco-friendly floor options for your home

Indoor pollutant levels can be up to five times higher than they are outside, according to the EPA, and all you have to do to find the source of many of those pollutants is to look down at your floor. When you install traditional carpet or flooring it can fill the air in your home with hundreds of volatile compounds, including possible carcinogens, and it can take years for those compounds to disappear. To make matters worse, we often treat our carpets with toxic chemicals, and they are notorio...
