We love the newly designed Chelsea Design Quarter website and particularly like the ‘Inspiration’ page – an ever changing moodboard featuring fabulous product and lifestyle shots from all CDQ partner collections.

Deirdre Dyson’s Design Library includes a bespoke rug design for any interior style and as all our carpets are custom made; design, size and colour can be altered to suit the most exacting requirements.
Colour, in particular, can be dialled up or down and introducing bold colours in an interior can really embolden a space and anchor a room.
Style is of course the most subjective of things, for some interiors more is more and designs and colours that would apparently fight with each other when juxta positioned can be really effective.
This excess of pattern and bold colour is known as Maximalism and is a trend that is having a resurgence.
Deirdre’s rug designs can really lend themselves to this maximalist style – for instance GOLDEN PHEASANT, is a vibrant riot of pink and orange wools, shot with petrol blue silk and would stun in a busy setting or what about LIME JUICE? A super simple design but bursting with juicy greens that just scream excess.
This year’s SLIVERS has been our most popular design by far – bold nuggets of graded blues, purple and green silk would sit equally as a striking centre piece in a more pared back space or likewise hold its own when surrounded by bold graphic artwork and busy pattern.
Likewise GLASS CUBES and TRANSPARENT. This image illustrates how well carpets can work on walls to add striking colour and texture to a large expanse.
Contact us to arrange your appointment at our gallery to be inspired by Deirdre’s designs and explore your inner Maximalist with our selection of over 5000 wool and silk colours.
We can alter any of our carpet designs to suit your specific requirements.
Runners are particularly popular and a great way to inject interest into a hallway, landing or stairs.
We’ve recently finished some commissions where our Designer Nichola has cleverly altered Deirdre’s carpet designs, creating particularly effective results.
For this project Nichola adapted ANGULUS and used the client’s chosen colour ways to create a really vibrant entrance runner for a solicitors office in London.
The client’s colour selection worked particularly well in this long form version.
RHYTHMS is one of Deirdre’s classic designs, incorporating her trade mark ribbons.
In this case the client chose a slightly lighter colour palette with the elongated copper ribbon trailing through the design.
In the example above the Interior Designer wanted to transform SAND TRAIL from the 2014 collection into a runner for a hallway.
As the name suggested SAND TRAIL was inspired by the patterns left by the sea on the sandy beaches of the stunning Archipiélago de las Perlas, near Panama, Central America and the extended pattern in the original colour selection looks spectacular.
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.
