The very clever Designer Rugs has engaged a number of designers with differing skills and backgrounds to come up with a range of spectacular rugs…..we are talking Akira Isogawa, Dinosaur Designs and Easton Pearson to name a few.
My favourite rugs are interestingly both by Catherine Martin, production and costume designer to Baz Luhrmann’s fabulous Moulin Rouge and others. Her philosophy for these patterns was to “transform the mundane into the extraordinary”.
The rugs themselves are works of art but to see the rug named Feathers in situ above…. one can appreciate the impact of a stunning pattern but in rather subtle tones on what would have been a very neutral or bland interior.
This rather exotic rug named Peony caught my eye…..I pictured it immediately….. sitting on high gloss Black Japan timber flooring. Such a rich and vibrant addition to a classic traditional or contemporary interior….. a similar feel to a Persian rug. Persian rugs work with any period or style of furnishing and this rug would be equally as versatile.
Rugs certainly change the mood of any room….they are a little like accessories that can dress up or down an outfit….they dress the room !!!
