Emily combines a training in art, graphics, and illustration with a deep love of all things interiors.
The collection has three designs in total and four available colour stories, across two qualities of rugs. Construct Amity, Construct Amedee and Construct Aldo represent three different rug shapes which can come in either tufted or hand knotted. The collection has colour options in multi which include five different colours or a single colourway.
The four different pile heights and the block colours, work together to create Emily Forgot’s signature, graphical shapes. The interchangeable forms introduce a new technical element to the overall FLOOR_STORY edit resulting in a completely unique and creative concept, not usually seen in rug design.
‘As part of my design and art practice I create wooden relief assemblages that play with form and colour and often have a strong graphic and architectural feel. I approached the rug designs in a similar way - wanting to experiment with relief and depth, through the tuft heights and explore the mood and personality of the pieces through colour.’
