Rugs can provide a soft backdrop or make a show-stopping entrance in any room, and interior designer Marie Flanigan of Marie Flanigan Interiors uses them to great effect.

Not long ago she entered a partnership with Houston-based Madison Lily Rugs, and Flanigan’s second collection launched this month, focusing on soft colors in minimalist designs that add a luxurious feel to your home.

The rugs are made hand-crafted in India and Nepal, using natural fibers, silk, linen and Tibetan wools.

Meet Flanigan and her team and see the rugs yourself at a reception 6-8 p.m. on Jan. 31 at Madison Lily, 1727 Post Oak. RSVP to [email protected]
