A Carnival of Colour – Carousel Collection by Designer Rugs
Carousel Collection sees Designer Rugs’ creative designers Christine McDonald and Lia Pielli launch their first in-house hand-knot rug collection. The collection captures years of innovation and experience through a fresh contemporary lens.
Born from a place of embedded luxury, the inspired Carousel Collection is intended as its own carnival of sorts. Through colour, texture and pattern, each of the designs sees the harmonious fusion of a fresh contemporary approach with a considered and curated sensibility to patterning and the currency of trending design. Designer Rugs’ creative designers Christine McDonald and Lia Pielli have combined to launch this new hand-knotted collection as a reflection of years of innovation and experience of creating and manufacturing custom rug designs. The resulting designs reflect a connected understanding of the importance of personalisation in the homes we inhabit.
As with all of the rugs within the Designer Rugs collections, the Carousel Collection can be customised to suit the intended use, interior space or client requirements. With an understanding of process and a connection to both the design and manufacturing industries, the collection is a reflection of the notable observation in directions in design, responding to a growing client demand for customisable luxury. Having built up systems and processes over the years to fine tune the customisation of rugs to designer and client needs, Designer Rugs is able to offer the made-to-order rug at a fixed cost, with the extent to the customisation not adding any additional cost. Customisation of colour, shape and size is all offered and available on all of the rugs in the collection, without the typical anticipated heavy costs involved.
Leveraging their exposure to the market and having the intimate knowledge of favouring trends in colourways and directions in design has allowed the creative directors and designers to compose a collection that speaks to the current contemporary interior. Stemming from this understanding, and a notable growing interest in the luxury hand-knotted rugs market, the collection directly responds to this specialised niche. As access to design through shared global platforms increases, creating individual spaces that speak to a sense of place and personalisation has become key.
The resulting designs are limited only by the imagination of the client and bring an element of fun and movement through the inherent principles of colour, texture and pattern already designed and built in. Although standard sizes are 200cm x 300cm or 240cm x 300cm, all rugs can be customised in size, shape, length and even be made as a wall to wall carpet option, both for residential and commercial settings. With Designer Rugs showrooms in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland, the new Carousel Collection allows designers and owners to use the collection as the base for their own creations. Designer Rugs has created a collection that allows designers and clients alike to tap into its earned experience within the rug making industry to create unique and personalised floor coverings as artwork for the resulting interior zones.
