Pyramid Scheme is a series of 4 foot, hand-tufted, 100% New Zealand wool carpets. Each triangular shaped piece has been divided into three colors resembling the three sides of a pyramid. The installation of the multiple carpet/color ways, create a 3-D visual hoax. Goodweave certified, these carpets are also free of child labor and have been produced according to the Goodweave mandate which also guarantees ethical working conditions throughout the entire chain of production.
Bev Hisey has been involved in the design field for a million years. She started with fashion, and moved into home decor after the birth of her daughter in 1990. In 2002, at the New York International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), Bev launched a new line of handmade carpets, floor runners, cushions and blankets to great applause and media recognition. Since that time, Bev has been creating an ever-expanding line of quality hand-made products for the home, adding new techniques, such as hand-tufting, hand-knotting, die cutting and silk screening to her repertoire.
Bev’s products are playfully modern with classic finishings, setting her apart as a design original.
In April of 2012 she renovated and opened up her studio/storefront to the public. She continues to produce new collections of cushions, carpets and textile creations. Also available through the storefront is the “Everydayhousewife” collection of vintage modern Scandinavian, Italian art glass and ceramics.
