Passions For Luxury Rugs And Art Unite In These New Collections

Founded by husband and wife Edgar and Kelly Podzemny, Houston-based luxury rug purveyor Madison Lily Rugs has added two new collections to its lineup: the Studio Series and the Architecture Collection.

The former incorporates designs from Edgar’s very own paintings. An artist at heart, he was inspired by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Cy Twombly to pursue art full-time in 2017; now, Edgar has reincarnated his mixed-media-on-canvas pieces into the collection, marrying his passions for luxury rugs and art.

Just as imaginative but with more focus on structure and form, the Architecture Collection features rugs crafted from Chinese silk and wool that blend midcentury modern-, Art Deco- and Empire-inspired elements reminiscent of the Great Gatsby era.
