Design Notes

Fresh feminine florals have taken on a new dimension with appliqué, embroidery and beading by the likes of Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander McQueen and have become newly sophisticated.  I wanted to reflect this new direction whilst taking my lead from the original designs of Chinese Deco rugs, which were produced after the 1920s when experimentation began with vivid colours.  They were generally made from wool and silk and have a plushy, luxurious feel. Colours are lively;  rich jewel tones of magenta, turquoise, ruby and violet. Delicious. These pieces are now considered invaluable and ‘chinese deco’ is my attempt of making some of these gorgeous attributes accessible in an off the shelf rug.
