Rug Designer & Maker


A graduate of New York's Parsons School of Design, Omar Khan draws upon his expertise in furniture design, interior design and illustration to develop his incredibly beautiful rugs - distinguished by their depth of composition and exquisite craftsmanship.

Born in Singapore and based in Kuala Lumpur, Omar’s multicultural background – a blend of Dutch, Chinese, Egyptian, Pakistani and German heritage – is a rich source of aesthetic inspiration for his designs.  He often references ancient symbols and historical motifs, recontextualising them through modern abstraction and contemporary colour palettes.

Omar’s rugs are all hand tufted.  The richness of his designs is achieved by using many tones within each colour family, sometimes in an almost pointillist style.  The skill and patience required by the tufters themselves to execute these designs can be hard to grasp.  Every change in colour and tone requires a change of thread and high precision placement within the design.

Some designs add a further dimension, being hand carved to create contours and depth that are beautiful to look at as well as to feel underfoot.

Omar’s client list is impressive to say the least and his rugs can be found in the homes of dignitaries as well as high end luxury spaces.  Wright & Smith are so pleased to bring to you our edit of Omar’s designs, which includes some new and exclusive colourways.  The collection is quite simply stunning.  This is a real opportunity to bring a beautiful touch of artisanal luxury into your own space, wherever it may be.

“Each rug is a foundational flourish, combining precious materials with artisanal techniques to create a beautifully textured design for living”.

All of the Omar Khan Rugs designs that we show are offered in standard sizes online.  However, customers wishing to order rugs in bespoke dimensions or colourways can place their order with concierge@wrightandsmith.com, who will be pleased to assist.
