The competition

Welcome to CarpetVista’s annual design competition!

A colourful celebration to the faithful, yet often forgotten, everyday hero of our homes. The carpet.

Theme of the Year!
The theme for 2019 is Sustainable and with this theme we want to highlight the natural material wool. Thanks to the wool's durability, the rug is a fantastic investment for the home. Carpets made of wool are durable, last a long time and becomes more beautiful over the years. High quality wool rugs can also get a new life by converting the rug into Colored Vintage carpets or Patchwork carpets. In this way, a wool carpet can be used by several generations.

On the 11-year anniversary of our design competition, we are looking back at the beautiful carpets created from all around the globe. 92 countries to be more exact. And more is to come.

Do you have an inner designer waiting to be discovered? As a designer you can win not only fame and fortune, but also your carpet being produced and sold on CarpetVista/RugVista.

As a follower you will have a voice in deciding the winner and even have the opportunity to win a carpet of your own for your home.

Selected winners from last year

DOVETAIL FRANCESCA VEDOVATO United Kingdom United Kingdom

I'm a 23 years old graphic designer with a curious and dreaming mind. I'm from Italy but I'm currently based in London, where I work for a small studio. I'm fascinated by art, colors, shapes, and handmade projects. I believe in the power of details and in the clever exercise. A good design to me, is born by these values.

TILDA IRINA BARTELS Germany Germany

I studied fashion in Hamburg, live in Frankfurt am Main and work internationally as a costume designer for opera and theater. My father is an enthusiastic carpet fan and assembler and a couple of years ago he gave me my first carpet. Since then i’m fascinated by the options of effects carpets can offer in a room. This Design could be a drapery of fabric. The alienation in terms of colour gives a classy touch to the leopard pattern and is as well exciting and lively.
