A testament to creativity, collaboration, and the limitless possibilities of design


By Michael Ford

Thrilled to receive the prestigious Best of NeoCon Gold Award for the Mike Ford X Shaw Contract rug collection! Also, honored with the 2023 NeoCon Innovation Award. Grateful for the recognition and excited to continue shaping the future of design.

The Mike Ford x Shaw Contract Collection of rugs and broadloom​ celebrates the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop.

The designs are inspired by​ the five elements of Hip Hop: Graffiti, DJing, Emcee,​ Breakdancing, and Knowledge. When architects and interior designers use this collection on projects, it supports the next generation of diverse designers. 

Part of the proceeds from the line supports The Hip Hop Architecture Camp and my mission to position Hip Hop culture as​ a catalyst to introduce underrepresented youth to architecture and design.
