The Brownstone Collection

Traditional craft meets modern comfort.

NuStory brings together old and new, from the story of traditional craft to the new narratives we each create when we make a home. Case in point: our Brownstone Collection. Inspired by vintage rugs and patterns collected from estate sales, we created a new twist on tradition — updating timeless designs with comfortable, long-wearing materials made for modern life.

The Brownstone Collection draws on past and present influences.

Hand-Knotted Heritage

All the carpets in our Brownstone Collection are hand-knotted, meaning they’re woven by hand on a loom to create a flatter pile that wears well over time. These rugs tend to last and look great after a little wear and tear. Natural cotton and wool are the main materials used, and some rugs include a hint of polyester for strength. For example, the hand-knotted surface of the Distillery Rug is a strong example of this. It stands up to traffic and ages beautifully — like a fine spirit.

Designs with Depth

Each one-of-a-kind rug celebrates handcraft and history in a neutral palette that will complement traditional spaces. Our Mercantile Rug updates a classic pattern, using subtle beige-on-ivory medallions with a geometric border to merge present and past influences.

The NuStory Mercantile Rug brings subtle shades together in an allover pattern that fits in anywhere.
Finally, the variations in a hand-knotted rug create depth and dimension, but they’re also forgiving when it comes to wear. Our Eaves Rug has a dense pattern of intertwined vines, which read as a field of deep but subtle blue. The all-over pattern tends to hide dirt, and it instantly upgrades a bathroom or kitchen.
