Citizen Artist's founding partners Joshua Rose and Rafael Kalichstein

Citizen Artist

Citizen Artist is widely recognized and admired for its sense of refinement and commitment to holistic living. The studio's work blends what is beautiful and what sustains, evolving the principle that "form follows function" so that neither leads nor follows; rather, the relationship between the two is always harmonious, cyclical, and seamless. Citizen Artist's founding partners are Emmy award-winning designer Joshua Rose and once-Chinese medical practitioner Rafael Kalichstein

Collection: Citizen Artist

The Bisous Collection by Citizen Artist

The eight carpets in this collection are inspired by the ways in which human beings express themselves: language, poetry, art, and architecture. Bisous is intended as a celebration — an exultation — shared through original artwork and expertly translated into fine rugs.

The Baci Collection by Citizen Artist

The principal designers of Citizen Artist have had the great fortune to spend time in Italy. It is a country they love, replete with dear friends, and in which the architecture, design, and history are as intoxicating as the cuisine. The Baci Collection for Mehraban rugs is inspired by Italian mosaics, friendship, and the simple pleasures found while falling in love with the spirit of a culture.
