If you need a bold and creative rug to make your home cozier and more welcoming this fall and winter, here’s a great way to do that!
Peace Industry, a brand that specializes in Iran-made felt rugs, recently partnered with four independent designers for their Fall 2017 collection, including Alison Damonte, Hinterland Design, Raha Raissnia, and Disc Interiors. The rug collaborations show new, modern approaches to the age-old techniques of felt making through experimentation.
Giving nod to abstract, minimalist painters, like Sol Lewitt and Ellsworth Kelly, the Alison Damonte Collection overlaps geometric forms that result in unusual rug shapes. Hinterland Design merges floating geometric shapes and pale gray backgrounds for a Memphis-deco feel. Accent curves and asymmetrical fringe add unexpected, yet playful details resulting in a post-modern look. Multi-media artist Raha Raissnia brings a “raw and unstructured” aesthetic by referencing her own black and white oil paintings and black and white films.
