New York textile designer Madeline Weinrib has shaped a distinct signature style that is at once timeless and contemporary. An established painter, Weinrib exhibited regularly throughout the 1990s and taught drawing at CUNY before designing her first carpet collection in 1997. Inspired by the challenge of translating painterly ideals to warp and weft, she sensed an opportunity to carve out a new niche and to modernize what was at the time a traditional idiom.
With her individual approach to pattern, palette and scale, Weinrib actively challenges the boundaries between art and design with her collections of heirloom quality carpets and artfully conceived textiles. Weinrib has been commissioned to design custom works for the Neue Galerie, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and The IFPDA New York Print Fair. In addition to her New York Showroom and Atelier in ABC Carpet & Home, Weinrib’s work can be found at the Alberto Levi Gallery in Milan, Sebastian + Barquet in New York, and Ralph Pucci International.
