Arthur and Nadia Stark
New York City
For more than 65 years, STARK has provided custom service and products for the interior design profession. The Stark tradition of service and quality was established by the late Arthur and Nadia Stark, who traveled the world acquiring fine carpets and learning the art of recreating carpet masterpieces. Now headed by the Stark’s sons, John and Steven, the firm specializes in custom-designed carpets for the residential and contract markets. For designers, Stark is a Mecca of inspiration as well as the standard for quality, coloration and authenticity.
This iconic fabric, flooring, and furnishings house is perhaps best-known for its traditional interiors, but many contemporary new lines are also offered of which everyone should be aware!
Founded in 1946, Stark Carpet has long been a favorite of upscale designers for their custom projects. The company has expanded to include divisions which go far beyond carpet — they offer new and antique rugs, upholstery fabric, wallcoverings, and furniture.
Among their products are designs by Kenzo, Missoni, and David Hicks. This resource is not to be missed. Some of the most unique and high-quality materials I've come across are from this very place.
