Colonial Mills rugs featured in Weekapaug Inn renovation
June 11, 2013,
Braided area rugs from Colonial Mills Inc. are part of a $20 million renovation of historic Weekapaug Inn in Weekapaug, R.I.
The interior renovations were the creation of Taylor Interior Design, which included the Rhode Island-based rug manufacturer in the plans for the Cape Cod-style inn, built in 1899.
In the weeks leading up to the installation, Colonial Mills produced more than 40 custom rugs for the inn, including three large, double-braid all-natural wool rugs that cover the common area referred to as the SeaRoom.
"The Inn is a wonderful piece of historic New England architecture and as a Rhode Island based manufacturer of braided-texture area rugs, it is an honor to have been included," Thayer said. "We owe sincere thanks to Taylor Interior Design and all those part of this beautiful project."
