Continuing its tradition of collaborating with local designers, Designer Rugs has partnered for a second time with Australian design partners Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson, of fashion label Easton Pearson, for their new rug collection, Coromandel – launched last week in Sydney.
Drawing on their travels and referencing the exotic hybrid style of Indo-European chintz design, the designers say of the Coromandel collection: “Our designs take chintz back to its original purpose as sophisticated floor coverings, but the macro focus on tiny fragments gives traditional design a new modern viewpoint”.
With an exuberant and unafraid colour palette, the Coromandel collection is hand-made from 100% New Zealand wool, with some designs additionally utilising silk. The rugs can be custom coloured and sized to suit any space, and are available exclusively from Designer Rugs.
Working with Edra from the start, Italian designer Francesco Binfaré has produced some of the brand's classics, including the recent Pack and Chiara sofa.
