Dialling Down The Colour – How Deirdre Dyson Rug Designs Translate in a Muted Palette

Deirdre Dyson is renowned as a colourist and her fine eye results in bold and dramatic carpet designs which  showcase this exceptional talent and capture the imagination of industry and retail clients.

A new collection launches at Maison et Object every January and each year is lauded by the interiors press, gaining global praise.

However beyond the eye-catching drama of each collection in ‘real life’ inevitably some projects won’t require artworks for the floor which guide a scheme and create a focal point.

As Deirdre Dyson carpets and rugs are custom made, the colour options are infinite and Deirdre’s designs can be just as impressive when the colour is dialled down.

Not every space can accommodate an eye catching rug but where a bland monochrome floor covering may be the go to, a well crafted rug design in a subtle, tailor made palette can be the most effective solution.  A design that doesn’t dominate but adds a layer of luxurious and considered design to a scheme.

Almost all Deirdre Dyson rug designs work brilliantly when muted tones are applied – we thought we’d showcase some of Deirdre’s designs that have been adapted for clients when a neutral palette has been required and how successfully these designs translate in softer, understated tones – as far from bland or ‘greige’ as you could imagine.

Deirdre and her team are here to advise on the perfect design and colour selection and will confidently guide you through the options to create a stunning finished rug in a toned down palette, totally bespoke to you and your space.

Here are a few examples of Deirdre’s designs in neutral versions.

Design Picks from Maison et Objet, Paris 2020

Deirdre launches her new rug collection every January at Maison et Objet, Paris.

Deirdre herself does not follow trends and lets inspiration and her instinctive eye for colour and form lead the evolution of new rug designs however Maison gives Company Manager Edison, a trained Interior Designer, the chance to keep an eye on trends and report back on his top design picks when he takes a break from meeting clients on our stand.

Here are a few of his favourites from this year’s show.

Edison’s musings on the iconic Fashion Photographer Guy Bourdin

As winter draws ever closer, it’s crazy to think how quickly the time has passed and that Maison 2020 is just around the corner.

It only seems like yesterday that we were on location at some fabulous properties, taking lifestyle images for Deirdre’s successful ‘Plumage Rug Collection’ styled by Louisa Grey.

In fact, that was a year ago and looking back at some of the wonderful photography by Michael Sinclair, I noticed a Guy Bourdin photograph pictured on one of the walls next to Deirdre’s QUILLS carpet.

How fitting, seeing that London Fashion Week is currently in full swing.

Considered as one of the important founders of contemporary photography, Bourdin’s images are highly charged and highly provocative; full of sensual and mysterious narrative but remaining colourful and often playful.

His advertising campaigns became synonymous with haute-couture whilst the product always came secondary to the image.

Even Madonna paid homage to Guy Bourdin in her 2003 ‘Hollywood’ music video, drawing direct inspiration from his most iconic images.

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!
