Rhyme is a multi-disciplinary interior design, art advisory and design manufacturer based in New York City. The company's design collections feature sculptural Irish wool rugs and tapestries that serve as customizable and functional floor art or wall mounted tapestry. The first Limited Edition Insula Series is inspired by 7th Century Irish Insular Art and illuminated manuscripts followed by The Trinity Series, celebrating the concept of “rug as sculpture” and the purity of triangular forms. The OM Series, derived from a 1600 year old “tree” alphabet called Ogham is crafted with naturally brown (undyed) wool of the Irish Zwartbles sheep and a carpet or tapestry design that can spell just about any word. A fourth design collection is the surface sculpted Modernity series, a tribute to Irish designer Eileen Gray and Kasimir Malevich.

Rhyme founder Claire McGovern has designed residences, spas, restaurant and office interiors, curated art and design installations and collaborated with many talented designers and artists. Born and educated in Dublin, she has worked as an interior designer, curator and art advisor, embracing the influences of West Coast California to East Coast neoclassical and contemporary style along with her Irish and European heritage. Her entrepreneurial days began in 2002 with an acclaimed art and design gallery evolving into the multi-disciplinary practice she operates today from Brooklyn. Client & company affiliations have included Lexus, Google, Facebook, Design Within Reach and experimental, award winning New York City based lighting design manufacturers. In 2017, she fulfilled a long term objective of realizing a sustainable and authentic design collection made entirely by hand in rural Ireland. Beginning with a series of Irish wool and silk designs, the collection will ultimately become a multi-media array of furnishings dedicated only to the highest quality craftsmanship.
