Madeline Weinrib

Painter and designer Madeline Weinrib lives and works in New York City. The granddaughter of ABC Carpet & Home founder Max Weinrib, she carries on the family tradition with her innovative collection of artisanally-crafted carpets and textiles. Translating her painterly sensibilities into woven form, Weinrib launched her first carpet collection in 1998, responding to what she sensed was a gap in the marketplace. Known for their lush color and opulent pattern, her designs draw on a wealth of sources gleaned from her travels and reflect her interest in reinterpreting and reframing traditional forms. In addition to her signature collection of carpets and textiles, her chicly-appointed atelier on the 6th floor of ABC Carpet & Home showcases her expanding repertoire of evening bags, caftans and limited edition vintage furniture. The artist's recent projects include a bespoke flooring installation for the Brooklyn Academy of Music, a signature carpet designed for the Neue Galerie's Neue Now collection and a collaborative furniture exhibition at the Sebastian + Barquet Gallery.

In addition to her creative pursuits, Weinrib is a trustee of Project Mala, a non-profit organization in Uttar Pradesh, India committed to eradicating child labor in the carpet industry through outreach and education.
