MOST-WANTED RUGS: WANT TO KNOW WHICH RUGS SHOPPERS ARE SNAPPING UP AROUND TOWN?

You have to see these.

October 23, 2018

Want to know which rugs stylish Australian shoppers are snapping up and which are on buyer’s must-have lists? We’re revealing both this month so that you can browse what’s hottest right now. Hint: we’re starting with Greg Natale’s latest Composite collection for renowned rugmaker Designer Rugs. Natale’s Ink design from the range is one of the most talked about rugs from New York to London and Los Angeles since appearing on the front cover of his recently launched Rizzoli book, “The Patterned Interior”.

Discover the transformative power of the designer’s Tibetan hand-knotted rugs. Sophisticated and statement-making – just how we like our rugs.

Natale, a pioneer in design, first teamed with Designer Rugs 10 years ago for his debut rug collection which has had amazing success. A second collection soon followed. And now there’s the sophisticated Composites collection – one of his most exciting ranges, yet: a series of luxe Tibetan wool and bamboo silk designs, inspired by abstractions of nature, marble and stone.

“I’m well known for my love of uniform geometric pattern repeats and have been quite mathematical in the past, but the truth is I always use organics for inspiration,” says Natale.

The rug collection, which consists of eight designs, made using Tibetan wool and bamboo silk captures Natale’s love of bold hues and pattern in a palette that offers plenty of scope and texture, with soft curves, forms and shapes. They spell luxury and comfort, adding a layer of sophistication and individuality to any space – and capture the current mood for bringing nature into our homes.

“I have always believed for geometric prints to work, they need to be paired with organic patterns.”

Composites is exciting because it offers freeform, irregular nature-inspired designs that can be mixed with Natale’s usual strict, graphic pieces that make everything look sharp, modern and fresh. It’s the full gamut, now!

Also, well worth investigating is Natale’s NEW MODERN collection that features bold,  sophisticated patterns and striking graphic designs for which he is renowned. Made from 100 per cent Tibetan wool, each hand knotted rug is named after a city, as travel provides the designer with much of his inspiration. There’s London, (with circular patterns that will soften a space); Los Angeles, (part classical, part Deco), Memphis, (post-modern in feel); Miami, (part minimal, part nautical, part urban); Milano, (dramatic graphic prints and colours); Rio, (inspired by mosaic pavements),  Saint Tropez, (full-throttle glamour), and Tokyo (dynamic and precise).

“The Designer Rugs team are the best at their game and working with them to achieve this broad offering of colour and movement in flooring is a real honour,” adds Natale.  

The Composites rugs are hand knotted in Tibetan wool and bamboo silk. They come in 2.4m x 3m or can be custom sized or custom coloured to order. Can be shipped to Australia or worldwide.
