complete your space with handcrafted custom carpets for thoughtful interiors

5th Avenue Residence

Since establishing our firm in 1990, we have worked with world-renowned interior designers, architects and private clients to develop custom, handmade carpets for residences, retail stores, universities, offices and hotels.

 

We stand out from the crowd as a small, female-owned, direct-to-consumer, custom carpet business. We partner directly with mills around the world and have unique industry backgrounds in fine arts and engineering, allowing us to help you design a rug that fits perfectly in your space while guiding you through each step of the process.

 

Reach out to us with your initial questions or ideas, and we can arrange a video or phone call for a personal rug consultation.

our unique approach

Eileen Le Guillou and Jody Harrow

Our firm originated after 15 years of training in fine arts, weaving, and the preserved methods of textile design and production.
Unlike most flooring companies, we are rooted in the art of design. After studying under a National Living Treasure in Japan for years, founder Jody Harrow gained her start first in textile design and her works, Peka Prints, are featured in the Cooper Hewitt Museum’s private collection. We consider the interior space of our clients when translating their designs into flooring designs, and can guide them through the limitless customizations.

 

We enjoy exploring the junction of innovative materials and the ancient craft of flooring.
We freely experiment with designs, construction techniques and materials, with reverence to the fact that weaving is one of the oldest craft tradition known to human-kind. Our collections range from incorporating fiber optic LEDs and Swarovski crystals, to a centuries-old crafts tradition of producing hand- woven rugs, pillows and throws made from the wool of a rare breed of long-haired sheep, felted in a local river in Europe. Our jobs give us the freedom to circle back to our initial motivation for producing rugs – design and our passion for cultural heritage.

 

Expertise in project management and operations. Growing up alongside the rug business, Eileen Le Guillou, Jody’s daughter and business partner, learned to speak the language of client specifications and sourcing details. She worked for IBM as a program manager for 5 years leading large-scale technology implementation teams before joining Groundplans full time in 2018.
