Ever wondered how our unique collaborations come about? Here, Sir Paul Smith recounts how he began working with us…
“I met the owners of The Rug Company at Westbourne House, my Notting Hill shop. We started to talk and they asked if I would be interested in designing a collection of rugs. I very much enjoyed talking to them and having had the opportunity to visit them in their shop, I knew immediately that we could work together.
My designs have been a progression of my clothes, shirts and knitwear. My rugs are strong in pattern and form. They fit into today’s interiors adding fun and colour.” Sir Paul Smith
We love this photo from our archive of Paul peering underneath his Aubusson One rug. He gives the delicate tonal detailing of this vey classic style of Aubusson rug an unexpected, eccentrically playful twist with hot pink and acid yellow highlights.
This strikingly contemporary rug can tranform a room with its vibrant colour palette and festive design; it will sit well in a host of design schemes, from the ultra-contemporary to the beautifully classic, as seen below.
