Rodarte debut collaboration with The Rug Company
Take a magic carpet ride...
Rodarte founding sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, have lent their conceptual and innovate designs to a collaboration with The Rug Company – creating four signature rug designs for the interiors brand.
Rodarte, founded in 2005, has threaded a distinct thread of whimsical creativity through its past fashion collections, that have always appeared to be wildly imaginative, with a subversive edge. This deign DNA has been carried through to the new rug collection.
The motifs used in the luxurious silk and wool rug collection are inspired from designs in former fashion collections – The Ivy Trellis rug has been pulled from the medieval-inspired Spring/Summer 12 ready-to-wear collection. Other designs such as the Cobalt rug draws on memories from the sister's childhood, with a reimagining of a porcelain motif. The sisters have always drawn inspiration from other creative sources and in turn, had an ongoing interest in exploring other forms, outside of fashion, as an outlet for their own creativity.
This rug quartet re-defines our understanding of a 'magic carpet ride' and can transform any room, from the ground up. The collection is entirely handmade using the age-old weaving techniques for which The Rug Company is renowned. The collection will be available to order from The Rug Company showroom in DIFC, Dubai from this month onwards and can be custom ordered to suit any specific dimensions.
