FALLING RIBBONS in a St. Moritz Chalet

FALLING RIBBONS is one of Deirdre’s classic designs and a favourite with both Interior Decorators and private clients.

We were approached by interior designers Woodstock Designs (a subsiduary of Spencer-Churchill) to create a hand-knotted, oval-shaped version of the design with an accompanying runner for the living room and hallway of a chalet apartment in St. Moritz (see floorplan below).

The designers had settled on bold primary colours for the silk ‘ribbons’ on a cream wool ground and our Designer Nichola set to work selecting harmonious shades and adapting the designs to suit.

We love how the finished carpet sits with the curved shape of the sofa and the way the complementary runner connects the open plan space.

The designers choice of blue and yellow patterned cushions and the bold red drum lampshade subtly pick out the ribbon colours and the choice of a clear glass coffee table is an inspired one, allowing the central tangle of ribbons to be enjoyed fully.
