Alexandra Champalimaud is the founder of Champalimaud, an interior design firm specialising in bespoke hospitality and residential design.
Established nearly 30 years ago, the company boasts a thriving international client base and has partnered globally with hotels and residences.
Drawing upon experiences and commissions worldwide, Alexandra has a unique talent for the application of colour, pattern and texture. This sophisticated aesthetic is reflected in her geometric and linear designs for The Rug Company.
“I would love to see these rugs super super big, in a super super big space. Craftsmanship is interesting, the appreciation for it is still alive and well. People like to commission rugs especially.” Alexandra Champalimaud
Hand knotted in Tibetan wool, Shadow is a bold design. Alexandra says: “I am intrigued by the way light works its magic, sifting colour, form and mood. With this rug, I focused on this journey of light in order to exaggerate the shadows.”
