Service to the community is a must for Stacy Weiss of Weisshouse, a Pittsburgh home furnishing and interior design company, so joining RugMark was a perfect fit. “We have always given rugs to charities supporting a variety of causes and it felt important to support the rug weavers too,” says Weiss. Her clients seem to be pleased as well. Weiss thinks the affiliation with RugMark is a selling point. “People are thrilled to know they’re buying something that is not made at the expense of children.  I am a firm believer that people just don’t want rugs in their homes made by kids, and that’s what RugMark fights for,” she says.

Weiss, who began her career as a photographer, is particularly interested in composition and the way colors play off each other. She brought that love of color with her when she joined her family’s home furnishing business, a company that evolved out of a dry goods store begun 60 years ago. “A rug is art for the floor,” Weiss says. She sells RugMark certified lines New Moon and Odegard, which Weiss likes particularly because of their use of bright color.
