THE MOD­ERN CAN­VAS

Artis­tic ex­pres­sion and com­fort com­bine in the lat­est de­signs

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Style | Shopping -

Many brands are trans­lat­ing clas­sic and con­tem­po­rary draw­ings and paint­ings into rugs. With eth­i­cal rug de­signer Deirdre Dyson’s train­ing in fine art and paint­ing, her na­ture-in­spired de­signs have a beau­ti­ful painterly qual­ity. As does the new ‘Un­ti­tled’ col­lec­tion by James Tufenkian, which also takes its cue from na­ture, reimag­in­ing ma­te­ri­als with loose, ab­stract brush­strokes. Rug de­signer Christo­pher Farr has long em­braced the con­cept of rugs as art, cre­at­ing pieces de­signed by renowned artists. We par­tic­u­larly love the Bauhaus-style de­signs of Josef and Anni Al­bers.
