Durkin Carpet – Columbus
Patrick Durkin has spent his entire life with carpet. After ten years of laying carpet he attended the Columbus College of Art and Design, unleashing his long pent-up artistic spirit. It wasn’t long before Patrick was designing and hand crafting custom carpet and area rugs exclusively. Durkin has been commissioned for several carpet murals such as the State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio. Durkin’s work has been featured in the national publication, Best of the Best Luxury Homes. Two of his rugs were selected for the exhibition Completely Floored, featuring antique Persian, Navajo, and artist-designed rugs, at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio.
