An internationally recognized designer who resides in Rome, Kevin finds inspiration in city streetscapes, the paving stones of trastevere and roman cathedral mosaics, translating them into carpets that reclaim the art of an ancient world for modern living. Unexpected, sculptural, not afraid of color, the Kevin Walz Collection for Tufenkian is a riot of pattern, texture and innovation in floor coverings. Kevin’s background in painting is evident in the prismatic palates, color drenched carved rugs, textile-inspired designs, and elegant pairings of wool and silk carpets in this collection. These unique rugs, handmade with the finest materials are like art for the floors.
My designs are brought to life by the touch of master craftsmen and hand processes that are rare in our evolving world.
