Beautiful rugs can be the perfect focal point of a room. Many designers will use a rug as a base for the entire design of the space. This is why we are in love with the latest collaboration between The Rug Company and the House of Elie Saab – together they present a hot new collection of exquisite rugs to impress.Renowned for his sense of elegance and quality, designer Elie Saab drew on his personal passion for architecture and interiors to create designs inspired by the signature elements of the house style: a fusion of femininity, luxury and modernity. Working with The Rug Company has enabled Elie Saab to extend the vision into a new realm with three modern rug designs, translated with the highest level of craftsmanship. The collection takes its design direction from themes that recur within the house’s aesthetic: foliage, floral motifs, texture and abstraction. Each design effortlessly depicts a creative vision while highlighting the quality of craftmanship and materials required to achieve it. In Bloom
features oversized florals in shimmering silk tones of teal, gun metal and green. Challenging the traditional format of a rug, the blooms burst from both ends of the rug and reach for its centre, creating an elegant mirror pattern.Lace Leaves
translates the delicate lace motifs prevalent in Saab’s work. Abstracted leaves in raised silk yarns float on a matte wool background of the same colour allowing the natural lustre of the hand spun silk to depict the design in an elegant and impactful way.The Brushstrokes
design is an abstraction of painterly movements. Many subtle colours are at play in this design, gently merging together in shimmering silk yarns. The meticulous craftsmanship of The Rug Company’s weavers ensures that each tone of the palette is perfectly matched in lustrous silk, and then carefully blended with its neighbours to give a subtle but highly decorative effect. All three rugs have been expertly woven by hand by The Rug Company’s weavers in Nepal, using age old weaving techniques and the finest natural yarns. The collection is available exclusively from The Rug Company’s showrooms worldwide.
