Thomas O’Brien

With his new rugs for PFM, master designer Thomas O’Brien weaves his inimitable style into a glorious collection marked by extraordinary craftsmanship and irresistible soul. When creating his rugs, O’Brien—the designer behind Aero Studios and Aero Ltd.—mined his own stash of treasures, drawing inspiration from such places as the hand-brushed cover of a vintage book and a set of cherished Indian kerchiefs. The result is a group that feels storied yet fresh.

Despite widely various origins, the rugs are united in their untamed textures, woven in a range of techniques and rendered in three different fibers—silk, wool and cotton—to create varying depths and heights. The nuanced treatments bring each design to life. What’s more, they’re entirely customizable.
