We all love the Rug Company for, well, rugs!
They consistently stock beautiful product that is ahead of the current trends.
The home of proprietors Christopher and Suzanne Sharp dazzled in vogue last winter..
So how do two rugophiles combine their love of textiles and art?
Artist created tapestries were the focus of
the arts commissioning organization the Sharps set up in 2008,
Here artists were asked to explore the art of tapestry creation..
Caroioca, Beatriz Milhazes
Mappa del Mundo, Gavin Turk
Trump, Francesca Lowe
Two of these are on display in the first and last pics of the Sharps home..
These were not available to the public.
But now the Rug Company has begun offering wallhangings,
part of a brilliant collaboration with some creative geniuses...
Those rock my socks :)
This one is my favourite..
Have you ever used a wallhanging?
I've always considered them a traditional element, reminders of a faded glory,
but these are so fresh and modern..
I think I may be about to :)
til next time..
