Weinrib is known for a sophisticated style that is at once timeless and modern. The showroom carries her collections of heirloom quality carpets and artfully conceived textiles, accessories, and home accents. In an interview with Diane Dorrans Saeks, Weinrib shares that she has wanted her designs to be contemporary, yet reference the traditional fabrics from which many of her ideas were drawn: "If it were a really strong design, it would work well in other environments. Great design should have flexibility. Using traditional motifs that have been simplified and pared to their essence has allowed me to achieve this duality."
