This bespoke version of DAWN was commissioned as part of a large-scale commercial project which includes several of Deirdre’s designs, in both freestanding hand knotted and fitted hand tufted versions.
We are particularly thrilled with the blue and copper grading in this alternative colourway.
You can also glimpse a bespoke version of Deirdre’s OPTIC carpet through the doorway.
We’re looking forward to revealing more images of the project as it nears completion.
We recently completed our largest ever bespoke hand-knotted carpet commissions, each measuring approx. 6.5 x 6m (over 38 square metres).
Both carpets were created for a private client for use in adjoining private offices by Deirdre who, inspired by the surroundings and detail in one of the upholstery fabrics, created a selection of concepts from which the two final designs were chosen.
Given the scale, Deirdre decided to make a dramatic statement with grading – creating a palette of 13 colours from muted cream to darkest brown for both designs and selecting an ox-blood red, also used in the upholstery, to highlight the ‘stitching’ and ‘branch’ motifs on the designs.
The finished carpets are stunning and a testament to the incredible attention to detail and craftsmanship of our Nepalese weavers and an absolute masterclass in grading, an astonishing feat on this scale.
