Funky Rugs, the online couture rug store, is pleased to announce the arrival of three new ranges from luxury designer, Nourison. The three ranges – Escalade, Suzani, and Siam – are now available to order online at Funky Rugs (www.funkyrugs.co.uk).
Nourison is America’s leading designer, producer, and importer of couture rugs. It keeps two permanent showrooms in the US and a collection of hand-picked distributors around the world. One of those is Funky Rugs.
“New collections from Nourison always cause a stir in the rug market,” says Lee Darlington managing director at Funky Rugs. “Where Nourison leads, other rug designers tend to follow. Interior designers often take their colour and design cues from the latest trends in the Nourison catalogue. We get excited too. Each time we bring in a new collection from Nourison, we give home makers and interior designers a chance to take their own designs in a fresh direction.”
For home makers, Escalade is like a blank canvas. Its irregular organic pattern is whatever a rug owner wants it to be. It could be the pattern of cracks in sun-baked mud or the network of veins in a semi-transparent autumnal leaf. Or maybe a patchwork of fields seen from the air. Nourison have released Escalade in four striking colours: Denim, Flame, Granite, and Kiwi.
Suzani takes a room in a different direction. Although the basic design is based on a series of intricately embellished circles, each of the five Suzani rugs is different. Colour and movement are key here. The interplay of pattern and colour gives Suzani rugs a vibrant life of their own.
The six designs within the Siam rug collection are also different. Each one suggests the detail of a much larger design of oriental origin. This close-up effect is accentuated by building irregularities into the design that resemble the natural variations in traditional hand-woven rugs.
