The champion of eclectic British fashion, Paul Smith, describes his unique and much-coveted style as ‘classic with a twist’.
His creations are infused with a sense of humour which is beautifully married with a love of tradition; his unmistakable Englishness is augmented by the unexpected and the eccentric.
One of the first fashion designers to collaborate with The Rug Company, Paul’s confident, bright rug designs can transform a room and many have become undoubted icons of design.
“My rugs are strong in pattern and form. They fit into today’s interiors adding fun and colour.” Sir Paul Smith.
The Paint Stripe rug was inspired by mid-century modern abstract art. This style of action painting is referred to as drip painting. The rug represents a canvas with expressive drips of colour creating a wonderful broken stripe effect.
Paul Smith's signature Swirl is instantly recognisable as a work of graphic genius. In washed-out, muted tones of pale olive, ginger, grey and cream, this hand knotted rug in pure Tibetan wool is an ultimate expression of this iconic design.
