MAXIMALISM: Some Deirdre Dyson Rugs that work with the Trend

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.

Deirdre Dyson Exclusive Collaboration with Rinck Paris

Deirdre Dyson is one of the exclusive brands selected by Rinck Paris for their curated collaboration At Home with a Connoisseur #chezunconnoiseur,  a space filled with the best of contemporary art and design selected by Rinck in collaboration with tastemaker, and Deirdre Dyson French representative, Julia Van Hagen.

Having recently opened a showroom in nearby rue des saints-pères, Rinck selected two of Lady Dyson’s rug designs from this year’s LOOKING GLASS Collection – the bold and graphic SLIVERS and vibrant, organic TRANSPARENT, both hand knotted in Nepal in the finest Tibetan wool and Pure silk.

The curated space includes the latest addition to Rinck’s Félicité collection, a monumental bronze ceiling light, suspended above a table from the same collection.  This is juxtaposed with a period 1940s sideboard, typical of a late Art Deco style that brought the house such success in the post-war period. Above the sideboard are a further two wall lights from the Félicité collection, uniting these two Rinck designs separated by seven decades of history.

Facing this sideboard, Savannah Bay Gallery contributed contemporary stools by the Zieta Prozessdesign Studio, home of Polish architect Oskar Zieta. Constructed in sculptural stainless steel with the studio’s Heat finish, they are an inspiring combination of technological innovation and contemporary design. This Paris gallery, always on the lookout for truly dedicated designers, also supplied two table lamps in laminated dichroic glass, the work of Buzao Studio.

The interior was painted by the skilled artisans of Argile and features two of the Paris specialists’ custom shades, Atelier Red and Scala, creating the perfect bold backdrop for the beautiful objets on view.

The exclusive wallpaper is from celebrated English company Fromental, “The Classicist Sketchbook” is a collaborative new design, inspired by full-scale sketches from Rinck’s design archive.

To enhance the space imagined by Rinck, Julia Van Hagen chose a series of potent modern works, with a photograph by Egyptian artist Youssef Nabil, a mixed-media work by New York painter Borden Capalino, a canvas painted in malachite ink by Californian Matthew Brandt and a painting by Jonathan Monk.

This unmissable design event, co-inciding with Paris Design Week takes place from 3rd – 24th September  at 21 Rue Bonaparte in Paris by appointment.  To arrange your visit please contact julia@deirdredyson.com or take an in-depth virtual tour here!
