Geometric irregular lines layered with painterly gradients used to create a contemporary bordered rug in a reflective olive colourway.
CURB, our latest collection with designer Gill Thorpe, is drawn from the parallel alignment of pavement slabs and paint lines found in unrefined, urban settings. Each rug from the collection explores the beauty of irregularity - featuring bold borders overlaid onto textural woven backdrops in both flatwoven and tufted rugs.
These cityscape influences have been translated into a series of colourways that recontextualise the unpolished inner city aesthetic. Gradient painterly textures contrast with linear bordered lines to give the tufted rugs depth whilst clean asymmetrical lines reveal an unconventional, flatwoven design.
CURB breathes new life into traditional bordered rugs, which play the trick of making smaller spaces feel bigger and larger spaces more centered. With options of muted or bold colour-centric palettes, these rugs allow you to play around with matching or contrasting textures and materials to create a considered space.
Crafted by punching strands of yarn onto a stretched canvas frame, hand-tufting brings a deep and luxurious texture. The feel of a hand-tufted rug is hard to beat and the technique is ideal for a myriad of shapes, painterly lines and bright, contrasting colours.
