We make Carpets


Fervent Carpet


The rise of the carpet

6th November 2014

As we de clutter our digital lives thanks to our smartphones and engage in a sterile environment via our computers and social media, we are seeing the desire to fill our physical lives with texture, tactility and experience gain momentum.

Materiality and texture are back in design and the number of carpets and wall hangings that are coming back into favour are testament to this.

During Dutch Design week the over riding product of choice was a rug or a carpet, whether it be a statement on future sustainability of material choice or a comment on modern Dutch Design, the carpet and rug is pushing contemporary design and craftsmanship.

To see my pick of the most interesting have a look at the feature published on Unique Style Platform showcasing The rise of the carpet:Dutch Design Week textile inspiration.
