Four new friends to live with!
Please say hello to Peacock, Croco, Tiger and Frog, the new animal rugs by The Rug Company and the design duo Barber & Osgerby. I visited the stunning showroom in Munich to attend the brand’s new collection. It was an exciting evening organized by Christopher Sharp, founder and CEO of The Rug Company, and Elle Decoration.
The four new designs have been created for children, but in a way to be loved also by their parents. The colors that have been chosen are as cheerful as they are elegant and each rug has been hand-knotted using traditional techniques and the finest Tibetan fibre. I think all the rugs are fantastically well designed. My favourites, however, are the Tiger and the Frog. I like the pairing of this special dark blue with the yellow and beige of the Tiger. It is so impressive! And the Tiger is the only one that steps out the line, because the design and the colors correspond more the adult taste. But these wonderfully amusing Frogs are amazing too. Their faces seem to be saying “Oh hello, you’re here too?“. Really gorgeous!
And which design has caught your eye?
