1 TEX­TURE TAKES OVER For­get flat rugs. This year’s de­signs have a new dimension

The cur­rent de­sire for added tex­ture is driv­ing in­no­va­tion. Clas­sic Swedish brand Kasthall has cre­ated the ‘Field’ rug, with a re­lief pat­tern that’s pro­duced us­ing dif­fer­ent heights of bouclé ( looped wool). Mean­while, at Ital­ian brand Cc-tapis, de­sign wun­derkind Faye Too­good ex­per­i­ments with tra­di­tional quilt­ing, ap­plique and stitch­ing tech­niques for her ‘Quilt’ rug. And at Dutch com­pany Dan­skina, the ‘Bur­row’ rug by de­sign di­rec­tor Hella Jon­gerius uses sim­ple hand-knot­ting tech­niques to cre­ate three-di­men­sional tex­ture.
