Shalom! My name is Lisa Welch Hasenöhrl and I am the carpet artist behind the carpets you see here, and the owner and operator of the "Fruits of Love" Custom Carpet Studio.
After many years in Illinois and a short stint in Washington state, I am now permanently located in Oldtown, Idaho, boasting a brand new expansive studio, able to take on large-scale carpet projects. I make high quality, professionally designed custom carpets and uniquely designed and shaped area rugs and ship them throughout the globe. Whether you are in need of something modern or traditional, I design, construct, and deliver to you a professionally crafted custom carpet or shaped area rug that is guaranteed to fulfill your highest expectation!
Not only do I handcraft custom carpets and shaped area rugs in-house, I also design and build wall-to-wall custom carpet installations that can be shipped to you for local installation. Keep this in mind for marine custom carpet, (boat or yacht), your RV, retail store, or simply for your bedroom, rec room or living room. I can also design and create for you, corporate custom carpet wall relief sculpture for lobbies and coorporate office envirnments. I make custom designed monogram and logo carpets for your trade show or business. I love making custom nursery and baby carpets and shaped area rugs and carpets for kid's & children's rooms. Click the PORTFOLIO button above to see the numerous custom designed carpet and shaped area rug projects that "Fruits of Love" custom designed carpets has produced over the years. For dining rooms, living rooms, and kitchens and bathrooms across the globe see these links. I have many satisfied clients. It has been 23 years since I opened a storefront in a Chicago Wicker Park neighborhood, then a humble artist haven.
"Fruits of Love" prices are very good as well! Doing business with me is simplicity itself because I love making carpets for people! You can pay with a credit card, use PayPal, or simply send a check. Every custom designed custom carpet and shaped area rug I make is between $20 and $75 a square foot, depending on the complexity of the design, and the grade of European or New Zealand Wool, or high grade nylon you choose. I will also make special deals in certain seasons utilizing quality remnants in my scrap bin.
