Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson’s third collaboration with Designer Rugs has yielded a collection that is at once bold, beautiful, eclectic and exquisitely charming. It’s an exciting return to furnishings for the fashion designers, who closed their doors last year after 27 years – and a continuation of a label that still resonates in the Australian fashion and design industry.
Known for their strong textile focus and use of colour, often inspired by Indian, African, European and vintage clothing and prints, Easton Pearson’s signature is instantly recognisable in this fresh, lively rug collection.

“Although there is certainly a continuity in the design elements from our previous collections, these new rugs have a sparser and bolder pattern and an eclectic colour palette,” said Pamela and Lydia.
The inspiration for this new range came from the kaleidoscope, and the way patterns and colours can be recreated and reformed into beautiful new arrangements at the turn of a wrist. “We used a large scale but fragmented the details from pieces of antique textiles, then recoloured them to cover a spectrum of interior concepts.”
The Designer Rugs X Easton Pearson rugs are tufted in 100% New Zealand Wool, with the standard rugs measuring two metres by three metres, plus one round design at 2.5 metres diameter, and are priced from $4950. However, as custom specialists, Designer Rugs can create these rugs in bespoke sizes to suit any space.
The Easton Pearson collection is on display at Designer Rugs’ showroom in Brisbane and viewable online at designerrugs.com.au
