I've posted some stories on rugs and rug designers (see previous post on Amazed, Ltd) that are nothing short of art. And yet, here's another!
In January, the first Reuber Henning Collection 2007 was presented at [d3] Design Talents IMM Cologne.
Meet Reuber & Henning.

The following is reprinted from their website:
TRIM DOWN TO THE ESSENTIALS: BEAUTIFUL, GOOD RUGS
We come from two different worlds: Franziska Henning studied painting and has been designing artistic rugs for several years. (www.galerie-roehr-ripken.de)
Thorsten Reuber learned something about marketing and sales in the music and new media business.
Once he had caught her infectious passion for the beauty of color and material, it was only natural for them to decide to join forces and create beautiful rugs together: Reuber Henning was born.
Franziska Henning calls her carpets "Poetic Images" - images that "have been inspired by a wide variety of regions, periods and moods."
The designs of our first collection are partly based on German 19th-century silhouette cutouts and traditional Japanese woodcuts.
Our rugs are knotted from fine Himalaya wool and chinese silk following ancient Tibetan handicraft traditions.
We want to create rugs that belong to people, beautiful rugs in the very best quality, which will keep creating a special atmosphere a whole life long, and whose beauty and character only grow stronger with the passing years.
We are newcomers. We want to develop further, make lots of new things and lots of things better - please join us and give us your suggestions and ideas!
Franziska Henning & Thorsten Reuber
