Charlap Hyman & Herrero is a Los Angeles / New York-based architecture and design firm that takes a fully integrated approach to conceptualize and executing spaces in their totality. However, it also has their own collection of rug designs.
Principals Adam Charlap Hyman and Andre Herrero, whose backgrounds are in interior design and architecture, lead a practice that considers all aspects of the built environment, from site plan to furniture. Working in various typologies – including buildings, set designs, stores and houses – CHH endeavors to consider divergent art forms and the experiences of multiple senses. They aim to create spaces that become worlds unto themselves, with gesamtkunstwerk at the core of the firm’s objective.
CHH’s principals have been featured in Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30” in its 2017 category for arts and design, and the firm ranks among PIN-UP Magazine’s “Power Generation,” Architectural Digest’s “Architects and Artists You Need to Know Now,” and Sight Unseen’s “American Design Hot List.” CHH was selected to participate in the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial and won the annual competition hosted by the Miami Design District to design innovative holiday decorations for the neighborhood. In 2018 they launched a line of fabrics, rugs and wallpapers with the furnishings company F. Schumacher & Co.
This collection started when the design studio Charlap Hyman & Herrero approached Patterson Flynn Martin having in mind a single rug for a residential project. But Dara Caponigro—creative director of F. Schumacher & Co., the carpet company’s parent brand—loved the young firm’s energy and asked for more. What was originally meant to be a capsule collection quickly expanded into seven rugs and seven wallpaper patterns, three available as fabrics.
