Interior Design Sioux Falls, South Dakota Rug and Relic unique imports

Rug and Relic – Interior Design Photographs

Interior Design Sioux Falls, South Dakota

This summer I spent a few days hanging out with Laura and Tove from Rug and Relic. I fall in love with every single thing they import from Istanbul. Steve and Tove have become great friends over the last 5 years. If you are in need of a unique piece to fit in your space, I guarantee they will have 100 things that will belong in your home. These homes have a mix of the antiquities, hand made rugs and artwork that really make their store stand out.

  • On The Floors

Rugs imported from Turkey lay the groundwork for the mood of these spaces. This really is their specialty. They travel several times a year to hand pick the rugs that they bring home. Some are antique, some are made to order. You will not find many people in the country who better understand handmade rugs than Steve, Tove and their staff.

  • On The Shelves

After that it is easy to focus on the relics that give them the second half of their name. From ancient pottery and hand tools from Turkey, to antique mining casting dyes from The Homestake Mine. Such an eclectic variety of decor that you literally cannot find anywhere else.

  • On The Walls

Last, but definitely not least, their fine art adorning the walls of these spaces. They have two of our favorite artists represented in the store. Local artist Laura Jewell’s work has the qualities of landscape with hints of surrealism and abstraction. The way her imagery flows onto the surface is both warm and super modern. Artwork for any space. Des Moines artist Chris Vance is a little more pop culture, skateboard influenced artwork. He is an extremely proficient artist with a constantly flowing set of imagery going through the store. You have to have a collection of Vance’s work, because after one piece, your walls will beckon for more…

  • In The Space

Steve Bormes sculptural work is whimsical and awe inspiring. I have a previous blog dedicated specifically to his work. But you most definitely should head back and take a look at those pieces.

The best way to really get a handle on what they are up to, is to visit them in person. Have Steve show you his workshop and Paul Bunyon’s tool belt. Ask him to tell you the story of the purple cast, and tell him them¬†sent you.
