The Festival rug is instantly recognisable as the work of Sir Paul Smith. The classic stripe is given a contemporary twist with intersections and overlays, seamlessly flowing from one colour group to the next.
Expertly woven in muted royal blue and oyster cream bands, with gold and beetle red feature threads, the rug is handknotted with fine Tibetan wool.
A limited edition handwoven aubusson, the Chiaroscuro rug captures the otherworldly yet timeless vision of Alexander McQueen in this dramatic floral design, which draws inspiration from Dutch floral paintings from the 17th century.
Practising ancient traditions of rug-making, each step of the craft is carried out by hand. The colour is expertly blended and then intricately woven by The Rug Company artisans to achieve almost photographic detail.
Chiaroscuro refers to the juxtaposition of light and dark, which in this case lends the design an almost three-dimensional quality.
Organic and abstract, the Channels design represents Kelly Wearstler’s interest in street art and expressive graphic design.
The rug transforms hand-painted brushstrokes into vivid silk stripes on a Tibetan wool background. Theintentionally casual edging of the lines captures the freehand nature of the artwork.
As co-founder of The Rug Company, Suzanne Sharp’s fearless and instinctive creative vision has earned her a reputation as a pioneer of rug design.
The Bonavita rug encapsulates her talent at creating a thoroughly modern design from a traditional reference, playing with scale, direction and most of all colour. Inspired by tiles found in an old Maltese church, the pattern is reworked and edited in fresh blue and green into a contemporary classic.
Diagonal lines are notoriously challenging to achieve in a handknotted rug, but are expertly woven to pleasing effect within this rug.
