5 Luxury Rugs to Breathe Life into Your Living Space

There is no better way to bring life to your interior than commission a perfectly proportioned hand knotted luxury rug, custom designed and coloured to suit your space.

The right rug anchors a room, can create a template for the colours used in an interior, frame a piece of furniture, ‘zone’ a space or be a focal point in itself.  Within Deirdre Dyson’s Rug Collection there is something for every scheme.

We’ve selected five of Deirdre Dyson’s luxurious bespoke hand knotted rugs to show how the right design can really bring a space to life.

 

Deirdre Dyson Exclusive Carpets and Rugs Plumes

PLUMES

This dynamic design uses three colours, one wool and two silk, making it an easy rug to incorporate into any interior.

It’s the intricacy of this hand knotted rug that truly brings it to life, with a lower pile height and the careful carving of elements, this fine rug sits comfortably in a traditional or contemporary context.

Here it looks perfect in the modernist Ahm House with a classic Arne Jacobsen Egg chair anchoring this restful seating area.

 

Deirdre Dyson Exclusive Carpets and Rugs Attitude

ATTITUDE

An apparently simple design that actually uses five colours in the silk ‘bars’ which can reflect the colours used in your interior, dialling up or down the colour to suit the mood of the room.

In this light and airy open plan penthouse apartment, a range of blues reflect not only the blue supporting columns and the furniture and accessories selected by the owner but also the sky outside.

The carpet also zones the seating area bordered by an L shaped sofa, whilst glass coffee tables are cleverly used so the view of the entire rug design is unobstructed, adding to the light and airy feel of the space.

 

Deirdre Dyson Exclusive Carpets and Rugs Forest Mosaic

FOREST MOSAIC

What better way to breathe life into a room than bring the outside in?  The rich palette of green silks used in FOREST MOSAIC would bring an organic freshness to any interior, particularly restful tones for a bedroom or sitting room.

Mosaic is one of Deirdre’s signature motifs and the intricacy of mosaic carpets allow the introduction of several colours which can have varying tonal shifts – for instance ROSE MOSAIC uses graduated reds and pinks whilst the mosaic effect adds a contemporary edge to the floral theme.

 

 

Deirdre Dyson Exclusive Carpets and Rugs Harlequin

HARLEQUIN

This modernist hallway is lifted by the bold primary colours in Deirdre’s HARLEQUIN hand knotted rug from this year’s PLUMAGE Collection.

The pops of red, black and white provide focal points and elements of drama contrasting with the strong blue shades in its wool/silk mix background and work perfectly with the stark simplicity of the brickwork walls and carefully selected furniture and objets.

 

 

Deirdre Dyson Exclusive Carpets and Rugs Dawn

DAWN

The graded silk copper bars in this hand knotted design reflect the burnished metal fence enclosing the patio outside and the graded blue wool reflects the sky.

Referencing the outside expands the sense of space in this narrow room, cleverly creating an optical illusion as the design is also reflected in the large expanse of glass.

Deirdre Dyson’s colour choices in this rug lifts this otherwise stark garden room and gives focus and softness to a space that could otherwise seem austere and unwelcoming.  The perfect place to relax on the classic Eames lounge chairs!

Edison’s Picks from Maison & Objet Hall 8

We love to report back on favourite spots and trends from interiors exhibitions, especially Maison & Objet Paris.

We’ve been regular exhibitors at Maison every January for the past five years launching Deirdre’s new rug collections.

This year we’re showcasing neighbouring stands at our new location in Hall 8, the ‘Forever Signature’ Hall, which featured an array of high-end furniture, china and bedlinen brands.

Edison captured some of the things which caught his eye over the five days.

Practical and Beautiful. The superbly tactile, curves of hand-turned walnut in the sculptural VERTIGO coat hook by Nomon designed by Stefano Bigi 

Murano glass brought bang up to date with bold detail and vibrant colours on the Carlo Moretti stand.

Incredible matt black glass vases by Guaxs

The trippy perfection of the Emanuel Ungaro Home stand.

Created by the perfect combination of color, energy and shape, Souk mirrors reflect the influences of overwhelming and visually fascinating Souk markets in northern Africa with its vibrant fringes and earthy colors resembling typical macramé techniques, spotted on the Dooq stand.

Fun gin bottles on the Sieger by Furstenberg stand who employed a Mixologist to create delightful cocktails in their wonderful crystal!

Brand new colour variations and a different take on cut glass in these lamps by Vista Alegre

“I can sing a rainbow…”

Read on for Edison’s festive advice using Deirdre’s STREAMER rug designs.

As reported in House Beautiful and according to John Lewis, this year’s biggest Christmas decoration trend is to go full-out rainbow. Yes, think Joseph and his hyper-technicoloured dream-coat, think Wizard of Oz in HD, think saturation spectrum overload.

This may be not be to everyone’s taste, but hey, Christmas is about having fun after all.

Our STREAMER design in either colourway, would be a great companion to your rainbow inspired room. Linking up larger pieces of furniture and accessories by using just a limited colour palette, will give your decorations more impact.

Pair the STREAMER carpet with a grey sofa such as this velvet beauty from Swoon, for deep seated luxury.

Just add some colour coordinated cushions to complete the look.

Red graded option, Simon Key Bertman. Blue velvet option, Faversham by Mercer41

To get your tree looking its best, try decorating with this delightful box of glass baubles from John Lewis.

For additional visual warmth group some gold candlesticks (H&M Home) and add to them hand-drawn, coloured candles from Shearer.

When Christmas is over and those festive decorations are all packed and boxed away, your Streamer carpet can have all the attention back. Paired with an Onda curved glass coffee table from glassfurniture.co.uk will accentuate the curves of the flowing ribbons.

The red and grey version of STREAMER is featured in the sample sale.
