The wonderful gallery, in the historic Saint-Germain des Prés is a calm and inviting space, designed by celebrated Interior Designer Remi Tessier, working closely with Deirdre to tailor make a perfect interior in which to showcase her luxurious hand knotted rug designs.
Deirdre has chosen a selection of rug designs including a superb large-scale version of this year’s TRANSPARENT together with LIGHT FRAGMENTS and a stunning new working of partner versions of DAWN in alternating blue and red wool and silks.
Deirdre’s Parisian representative Julia will be on hand to guide clients through the designs and advise on design and colour choice.
Navigating the international marketplace can be a daunting prospect and having a guiding hand is invaluable.
The interest and advice from our UKTI representative, Michael MacCarthy, a regular visitor to our gallery, has been both welcome and extremely helpful, particularly his specialist knowledge in our area of interior design and textiles.
Michael put us in touch with the British European Design Group (BEDG). We are most grateful for the grants awarded to us by BEDG for the last two years, which contributed to our exhibition at the Maison & Objet trade show in Paris.
Maison & Objet has opened up the international market for us and has been extremely valuable to the future of this company.
‘This dining room is a mirror of the past: the rug is inspired by Art Nouveau, walls refer to 1950’s Italian Modernism but the interior designers have incorporated these influences to work with our contemporary way of living.’
