The start of autumn is known for many wonderful things: apple picking, cozy sweaters, hot chocolate—and for this community, the new edition of Celebration. The anticipation builds as you discover new magnificent pieces that cause you to pause and press your face a little closer to the page. They’re the pieces that make you turn to the nearest individual and say, “Will you look at that?”—whether that person hooks rugs or not. The photos are too good to keep all to yourself. And while some pieces will resonate more with some folks than others, these were the rugs that were, collectively, chosen as the winners of this year’s Readers’ Choice competition.
