There is something about a carpet in a room, it is like a well-dressed woman wearing a coat that matches too well her style and allure. This is the feeling when I enter a room with a handsome carpet, almost like a piece of art making a space look comfortable, chic and well dressed. That must be it when Lee Radziwill wanted to express her passion for carpets with a statement:
“I always begin a room with the rug; it is literally the foundation of the space. I then go on to the furniture.” Lee Radziwill
Rugs are the new It- pieces when it comes to designing an interior, as mentioned almost like an artisan fashion statement that underlines the mood of a room. Might it be a special weaving, colour, design or match of different patterns as long as it is a statement and different.
We selected our favourite ones, matching for example our Chanel make up palette (have a look at Chanel’s LES NEUF OMBRES, EDITION QUINTESSENCE to the ultimate bliss carpet by Mae Engelgeer seen at CC-Tapis.
Or a summer dress by Loewe from the spring 2019 collection along a carpet design by Deborah Kass of BravinLee Program, New York .
The classic black & white Fornasetti, artwork carpets which remind us of a vintage brooch by Cartier and we could go on with matching a carpet to a fashion look.
Whoever takes the inspiration from whom, carpets, fashion, and even make up palettes are a perfect match and next time you get dressed keep your carpet in mind.
