The latest in-house collection from Designer Rugs is aptly titled ‘Community’ and artfully contrasts the classic notion of home life with the “new normal” of virtual communication during life in lockdown.
The versatile collection combines the latest colour and design trends, interpreted in vibrant and tufted New Zealand wool and bamboo silk.
Conceived by Creative Designers, Christine McDonald, Lia Pielli and Chloe Boudib, the talent behind many Designer Rugs’ designs and collaborations, the new Community collection features glitch motifs, mark-making patterns and deco references.
Above: Navarro by Chloe Boudib offers a playful take on a linear pattern, with its balance between the organic nature of hand-drawn elements and rigid geometry.
Above: Evie by Chloe Boudib combines tone and texture through a minimal colour palette, with the layered mark-making and variation of scale creating an overall abstract woven appearance.
With its inception from a picture of a forest that has been digitally manipulated into the final design, Alexia by Christine McDonald (above) explores the connection between reality and our virtual world.
Above: Franco by Christine McDonald, with its abstract animal prints with the mark-making layered dot, offers a modern take on a classic distressed design.
Above: Grace by Christine McDonald was inspired by digitally enhancing and layering a bunch of flowers to create a modern, tactile design.
Above: Walter by Christine McDonald is all curves and two-tone simplicity, reminiscent of art deco industrial designer Walter Teagues Kodak’ Bantam Special’ camera.
Each rug in the Community collection from Designer Rugs is handmade and comes in a standard size of 200 x300 cm., but they can be custom made in any size or colour desired, including hall runners, circular rugs and wall to wall carpet to suit any residential or commercial space.
For Queensland customers, the Community collection is on display at Designer Rugs’ showrooms in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane and viewable online at designerrugs.com.au
