Forget the idea of ​​the classic rug, which in a more or less gentle way serves as a background for the interior elements. The new hyperdecorative rugs they are anything but subdued, but fairly ready to undermine the aesthetic boundaries of tradition with symmetries, contrasts, designs, and irregular shapes that outline a futuristic design. Relentlessly, they walk the path of the experiment and show versatile and energizing suggestions in a surprisingly harmonious and light-hearted dialogue with the various spaces of the house. Not only do patterns, colors and lines flow in a perennial movement, but visual suggestions disrupt and play with perceptions generate optical illusions, parallel worlds, so much so that they transport the two-dimensional surfaces into the third dimension. On the border of art, they appear as abstract paintings that reveal something different at each glance. This is the reason why one bypasses the concept of static, ie modern designer rugs they assume an exact identity and physicality, and for this reason they are also rejected in wall hangings to emphasize their presence. In addition to getting into the kitchen and bathroom with their peculiarities. Bold, excellence in weaving, however, always remains, with unique top-level productions that do not forget the most valuable qualities of the raw materials and the value of the handmade.

Made exclusively by hand in Europe, created by Studiopepe, the company’s new artistic director, Jov’s Landshapes collection breaks the concept of the rug as a static element and also brings it to the wall as well as to the floor. Landshapes was born during the lockdown – tell the founders of the studio – and this extreme need for freedom without patterns and contact with a clean environment is reflected in this collection. Here we are inspired by nature, moved by a very deep need for symbiosis with itself; the soft and twisted lines are reminiscent of the idea of ​​wild nature that envelops you like a mother’s belly, like a river bend or a meadow of tall grass. “Landshapes are made with a new quality of Merino wool mixed with Mohair, along with other materials such as Belgian linen, Tencel Lyocell, natural wool / silk and New Zealand wool.

Designed by PLACéE for Carpet Edition, The Floor Is Lava is a collection of 6 models of modern rugs which interprets the earth’s metamorphosis deformed and shaped by the slow passage of glowing lava in a pop and two-tone key. The texture seems to melt from the extreme heat through an effect created with broken and shaped lines. The energy of the magma is expressed by vibrant and intense colors borrowed from nature, such as the warm red-orange from the Fire Line model or the ash-like charm from the Lava Line and Carbon Plain rugs. But the color palette also extends to lighter shades that come from the gaming and digital worlds, such as greenback green, neon blue and orchid pink in the Deep Mint Line, Eolian Blu Plain and Pink Orchid Plain models. All made from New Zealand wool and Tencel with the hand tufting technique.

Le Tapis Nomade is designed for all interior spaces, available in three different colors – gold, forest and sand – and is made with an eco-sustainable approach at all stages of production: from the hand spinning of the softest Himalayan wool to the use of purified rainwater for washing the final products.
